Animals, Apparently, and Children: 4G 19:47 nonomella-deactivated20171016 Coraline is a masterfully made film, an amazing piece of art that i would never ever ever show to a child oh my god are you kidding me cthullhu Nothing wrong with a good dose of sheer terror at a young age whatthecurtains "It was a story, I learned when people began to read it, that children experienced as an adventure, but which gave adults nightmares. It's the strangest book I've written" Neil Gaiman on Coraline greenbryn @nightlovechild lierdumoa This is a legit psychology phenomenon tho like theres a stop motion version of Alice and Wonderland that adults find viscerally horrifying, but children think is nbd It's like in that toy story period of development kids are It's like in that 'toy story' period of development kids are all kind of high key convinced that their stuffed animals lead secret lives when they're not looking and that they're sleeping on top of a child-eating monster every night so they see a movie like Coraline and are just like "Ah, yes. A validation of my normal everyday worldview Same thing happened to me last Tuesday night. I told mommy and she just smiled and nodded redgrieve Stephen King had this whole spiel i found really interesting about this phenomenon about how kids have like their own culture and their own literally a different way of viewing and interpreting the world with its own rules that's like secret and removed from adult culture and that you just kinda forget ever existed as you grow up it's apparently why he writes about kids so much 12drakon An open-ended puzzle often gives parents math anxiety while their kids just happily play with it, explore, and learn. I've seen it so many times in math circles. We warn folks about it gokuma Neil Gaiman also said that the difference in reactions Neil Gaiman also said that the difference in reactions stems from the fact in "Coraline" adults see a child in danger - while children see themselves facing danger and winning rosymamacita i never saw so much push back from adults towards YA literature as when middle aged women started reading The Hunger Games. They were horrified that kids would be given such harsh stories, and I kept trying to point out the NECESSITY of confronting these hard issues in a safe fictional environment. jewishdragon Also, in an interview, he said that Coraline was partially based on a story his not yet 6 year old daughter would tell him SAGAL: No. I mean, for example, your incredibly successful young adult novel "Coraline" is about a young girl in house in which there's a hole in the wall that leads to a very mysterious and very evil world. So when you were a kid, is that what you imagined? GAIMAN: When I was a kid, we actually lived in a house that had been divided in two at one point, which meant that one room in our house opened up onto a brick wall And I was convinced all I had to do was just open it the 4G 19:47 And I was convinced all I had to do was just open it the right way and it wouldn't be a brick wall. So l'd sidle over to the door and l'd pull it open SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER) SAGAL: Right GAIMAN: And it was always a brick wal SAGAL: Right GAIMAN: But it was one of those things that as I grew older, I carried it with me and I thought, I want to send somebody through that door. And when I came to write a story for my daughter Holly, at the time she was a 4 or 5-year-old girl. She'd come home from nursery. She'd seen me writing all day. So she'd come and climb on my ap and dictate stories to me. And it'd always be about small giris named Holl SAGAL: Right GAIMAN: Who would come home to normally find their mother had been kidnapped by a witch and replaced by evil people who wanted to kill her and she'd have to go off and escape. And I thought, great, what a fun kid wetwareproblem "Fairy tales do not give the child his first idea of bogey O4G19:47 Fairy tales do not give the child his first idea of bogey. What fairy tales give the child is his first clear idea of the possible defeat of bogey. The baby has known the dragon intimately ever since he had an imagination. What the fairy tale provides for him is a St. George to kill the dragon." - G. K.

Anaconda, Complex, and Doge: Damn, hope that isn't true nickcasey21 20min What if every sperm you ejaculate via masturbating ends up fusing together to face one mega sperm cell, and in the afterlife you must fight it to reach your ideal heaven? Reply + 920 Points 62 Comments SHARE the_lawyer_doge What kind of drugs do you...175 i rape_sheep it sound like a the binding of...32 coffee drinker Damn, mine will be bigger... On Average a guy releases 400 million (400,000,000) sperms/ ejaculation If a man masturbates every day of his 100 year life he would masturbate roughly 311046 times by his death if he starts at 15 years... By his death he would have released 400 million x 311046 sperms 1.244184 x 1014 sperms The length of the tail of a single sperm is 50 micrometers with a diameter of 1 micrometer that tapers down to 0.5 micrometer at the end Dimensions of sperm head are 3.1 x 5.1 x 1 micrometer. Using complex calculations of volume I calculated the volume of a single sperm to be 38.7 x 104-18 m3 (of which 59.17 % is the volume of the tail) Now, the total volume of all the sperms ejaculated in a lifetime is V 1.244 x 1014 x 38.7 x 10A-18 m3 V 48.15 x 104-4 m3 Assuming that the final form of the sperms is same as a single sperm, the volume of the tail will be 59.17 % of the total.. Hence the volume of the tail of the monster sperm is 28.5 x 10A-4 m3 Or 28.5 x 1014 micrometer3 As the sperm has grown proportionally the ratio of the thickness and length of the tail will remain the same... Reverse calculating the magnitude of enlargement I found that the sperm becomes 49920 times it's original dimensions to give the monster sperm Thus the length of the monster sperm is L-49920 x 55.1 micrometers Therefore, L 2570585 micrometer Or 2.7506 metres.... Or 9 feet (in retard units) Or 3 yards (more retard units) Hans, get ze spermenwerfer! Sorry for the long calculations... Here's a Spermtato. So I saw this.I wasted an hour on this shityes I study both math and biology
