    It happened to me once at work and I was nearly crying from the pain and I had to stay in the back doing dishes all day because whenever I went out to the storefront the light made it pulse. Legitimately one of the worst experiences of my life; I no longer made fun of friends who had problems with headaches.

    I've always made sure I have a constant supply of extra-strength painkillers ever since I found myself suffering from a migraine while couchsurfing half a mile away from any drug stores

    Pretty much this. I try to keep some aspirin in my bag when I got out, or make note of the closest place to get it.

    Think that is bad try.. or not Meningitis, it combines vomiting, horrible sensitivity to sound including whispering, and being effected by light so badly that even the light from the hallway hurts.

    headaches are the absolute shits. when I have them I just drug myself up on tylenol with codeine and fall asleep because the headaches are super debilitating

    take me somewhere stars are still asleep.

    I'm sorry if you had trouble seeing that illusion, then, but the upshot is that even vivid color vision is just as much a trick of brain wiring and circumstance as color-blindness, if you want to see it that way.

    If you liked it, here's one of the other illusions I alluded to:



    A and B are the same color/shade.

    We had so much fun with optical illusions in cognitive psych class. It's hilarious and fascinating what you can trick a person into perceiving because of the many processing shortcuts our brains use to create a holistic representation of our sensory info.


    Re. migraines: Had several of them during adolescence. I've taken to keeping a supply of Excedrin's migraine formula on hand for when they come up again every so often. For very bad ones that need to be relieved quickly, I'll take the meds with a sip of something caffeinated - not normally recommended, since specifically migraine formula meds usually contain an appropriate dose of caffeine anyway - but the caffeine's effect on circulation in the brain improves the med effect/speed.

    I like this one. I feel the easiest way to explain it to people is just to roll your hands and a circle, and put them over the squares and look though them.

    I like this one. *ignore troll face

    See, my bio right now is an Honors Biology high school course, which is really laughable considering that in the first two months of the school year the only major grades we had were this project and one written assessment. Also our teacher is terrible so that might be part it. There's been nothing intensely math related so far that I can think of, and certainly nothing nearly as complex as what you mentioned. When I think of a science relating to math, I tend to think of physics, not bio. Took that class my freshman year of high school and that's had more than chem and bio so far.

    i get mad when people say biology doesnt have anything to do with math/hard "real" science <_<
    Oh that's an interesting combo, bio and stat seem pretty different when thinking about them in general, for me, anyway. I'm taking AP Stat this year along with Honors Bio and I can hardly make any connections between the two, cool that there's some overlap once you get more advanced. Definitely going to major in Stat once I get to college, though it's kind of unfortunate that I won't have a stat class to take during my senior year next year. On the other hand however it'll definitely look good to have the AP class completed and college credit from a good AP exam score once I start sending in college applications. At least I'll still have Calc BC next year so I haven't run out of math yet!

    I get all of that with my migraines so.. :/

    Though I will say one of the worst experiences ever was throwing up when my back and ribs were broken. The pain. Dear god.

    I'm working on breeding/team building before shiny hunting. Although, I did manage to trade for a French Quilladin with a couple max IVs, so I get to MM and IV breed at the same time (multitasking!). To that end, I have a box full o' Bulletproof Chespin I kinda sorta hafta get rid of 'cause I'm running out of PC space. If anybody wants one, just send me a VM. I'm eager to get lots of different ID numbers, since I play the "loto" every day. The other day I won a PP Max, and wouldn't be averse to repeating that performance, aha. ^_^

    I could use one, but I don't think I have a whole lot on par with that. I could pretty easily get a baby Fennekin if you need one. Which you... probably don't.

    Yeah. Since nothing can be hacked yet, people are surprisingly generous with trading. Why everyone wants the starters is beyond me. I really want a shiny goomy though.

    it has bad ivs though

    in other news, I'm half done my online team. So far I got Heliolisk, Sylveon and Goodra and I'm thinking of adding Zapdos

    goomy is so ****ing stupid anyone who likes it is a moron obsessed with the internet because it's ugly and horrible and only got fans bc people on the internet like it for some reason

    also ap stats is more than some stats majors here take and qwe have a good stats program... just be sure you actually like stats because it's not as easy as some people think it is and it's not easy to switch to antoher major after u ick it

    this is me on sppf most of the time. so don't send me small questions. send them to kreis :)

    Little Miss Stalinist/Secret Al-Qaeda agents (i.e. Ellie) would be a ***** even if she was a conserative republican. What makes her the way she is happens to be the fact that the webmaster of this site let's her behave like this. (Of course, I would never make a liberal a staff member at any forum I'd be in charge of, regardless.)

    Memes.

    I kinda feel the same way about Espurr, which is almost as forced. Speaking of, someone on Tumblr posted a link to its Know Your Meme post saying "nice job," as if it was somehow a dishonor that it became recognized as a meme. Sorry, is that too honest for you?

    If I weren't already MMing a shiny Fennekin, I'd be MMing a shiny Goomy. It just looks so out of place for a Dragon type I have to have it.

    The best pokemon this generation are the Honedge Line and Hawlucha. If you disagree,
