If a young woman in middle school or high school hangs up a poster of Barack Obama in her room, this is seen as acceptable. It’s fine for women to admire men and want to be like them.
If a young man (the same age) hangs up a poster of Hillary Clinton in his room, this is seen as odd (maybe even troubling, is he gay? Oh no!).
Society tells us young men can’t think of women as role models, unless they’re a family member, whereas young women can admire and seek to emulate anyone, regardless of gender.
If you’re a young man, and if you have a poster on your wall with a woman, she had better be half-naked in a bikini, even if the Ronald Reagan or Gen. Patton poster next to it obviously features the man fully-clothed.
Young men are not to taught to think of women as role models. They are taught to think of them as either family members or sexual objects. There is no other category presented.
Ever wonder how dinosaurs got it on? These bizarre scientific scenes — by an illustrator who worked with Halstead — imagine how the 30-ton prehistoric behemoths had sex.
I’m sorry, but why? Who does this?
These people are perverts, they really put a lot of thought into the faces.
Yo, the lady brontosaurus is UNIMPRESSED.
i just reblogged dinosaur porn, congratz this blog is finally complete
i´m done with this site
so that’s why the sea is salty
The Fourier transform takes an input function f (in red) in the “time domain" and converts it into a new function f-hat (in blue) in the “frequency domain”.
In other words, the original function can be thought of as being “amplitude given time”, and the Fourier transform of the function is “amplitude given frequency”.
Shown here, a simple 6-component approximation of the square wave is decomposed (exactly, for simplicity) into 6 sine waves. These component frequencies show as very sharp peaks in the frequency domain of the function, shown as the blue graph. In practice, these peaks are never that sharp. That would require infinite precision.
I’m not too happy with this one yet. It’s a bit of a mixture of Fourier series and Fourier transform. The animation could also be a bit smoother in some steps. I may tweak it later.
is there a fandom for fourier transforms
