5/7ths is a dumb fraction

Yet it's much prettier than 0.71428571428

True

But how do you feel about 5/7rds

i'm allergic to math - that's what.

It only counts if pencil and paper were involved.

I mean I COULD have done it that way. Why. What have you heard?

I hated math as a kid, but now I do my taxes by hand on paper and then check them with a calculator. I have a friend who's pretty uneducated (dropped out of h.s. at 15 to have his first kid) and he's shocked that I can do math in my head. He'll call me up and say "I just got a job making 20 bucks an hour...how much is that per week?" and I tell him "\$800, probably \$680 after taxes if it's not under the table" and he's like "How the FCK did you do that so fast?!?"

Its pretty great to be able to do your own taxes. 👍

I got As in triple integral calculus... But I can't add worth *kitten* in my head. I'm better now because I've set my alarm clocks to make me do double digit math in order to shut them up.

But I still panic and blank out under pressure.

Tldr... I am absolutely in awe of people who can do mental math AND get the right answer!

On a side note... The first time I saved it, the filter changed *kitten* to *kitten*. But then after I edited it, it changed back to *kitten*.

Hmmmm *kitten*.

Eta... Bummer... It changes back to kitten when I refresh.

This feels exceedingly personal, and it's not like I have redeeming features to make up for a janky username.

I told my fat cousin the other day that the two of us should start an online movement to take down the bodybuilding competitions for failing to promote a diverse range of body types. I told her with mock outrage that if we entered a BB contest, we'd get laughed at and told we're Just Not Good Enough. Then I told her that the competition should be judged on who has the most body positivity and self-love.
