      I don't like letting my emotions do the talking for me, so I'm just going to sit back and say that:

      I'm gonna miss Monty.

      I mean, that is it.
      As an aspiring writer, I try to find inspiration where I can. Monty's action scenes and choreography helped set bars for what I wanted out of my writing in terms of action. I came to have great admiration for his dedication to his craft as much as he final projects he put out, and I know many others, especially from the this massive Rooster Teeth family we have here, found inspiration in the things he did as well.

      I can only hope that those who knew him, or were inspired by him, can continue to find their artistic way, not because of him, or even for him, but because...well, because they can.

      I hope his wife, his family and his friends can move on with the knowledge that our community will always be with them.

      And I know Monty will be with them too, probably doing some crazy ass choreography.

      RIP

      that he loves Tangled?

      Seriously. I'm a 28 year old army vet, and Tangled is one of my favorite movies.

      I need to know if this is healthy, or should I get checked by a doctor?

      this is the third year in a row that I have bought tickets for RTX, and unlike last year, I wholly intend to go this year. I'm looking forward to seeing what's going to be happening, and I really can't wait to see what's going on with RWBY.

      See you guys there

      Quite a snowstorm here in lovely Maryland. I figured I'd get an early start in going to work today, in hopes that my shit car could weather the vein of a road that I live off of to make it to one of the main artery roads of Maryland, Route 27. Now, I made it to 27 alright, but, alas, it was covered in packed, slick snow, and my entrance to it takes me directly downhill.

      Now, I figured I'd go ahead and try it, my car isn't that bad, so it was possibly that if I made it to down the hill and up the next hill, I might be able to make it.

      NNNOOOOO...

      Not happening. So I turned my car around and tried the uphill trek back uphill to my road and back home, to call out from work. Now, I was having issues making it back up, but I was slowly but surely making it. I pulled off to the side a bit, to let cars get by, when one of them tried to turn onto the same road I was trying to get to.
      This van, with an elderly couple in it, could not make it, and was now sideways on a main road, and it wasn't moving.
      It was then that I took a deep sigh, and, along with a stranger whose car was completely stuck nearby, we began to help try to push the couples van towards their destination. Even with the help of another stranger, our attempts failed, but the couple, nice as they were, thanked us for our help anyways, got their van turned around, and headed back down the road, out of site.
      Myself and the other two gentlemen walked over to my car, which, while off to the side a bit, was still in front of a line of vehicles that also were having issues making it up. While we talked about trying to get my car up the hill and onto the same road the elderly couple had issues with, a small pick up truck drove up and stopped next to use. The driver and his passenger asked if I needed help getting up the road. After I asked what his plan was, he produced a long towing strap (or whatever you want to call it), and hooked his truck up to my car and pulled me pretty easily up to my house.
      I got out to shake his and his passengers hand, and thanked him for his help.
      He smiled, we shook hands, and he and his passenger went back to the main road to help some more people.

      I'm not a firm believer in Karma, but I do think that good things can happen to those who try to do well.

      Anyways, drive safe

    • Probability, or Gavin vs. Ryan

      so I figured I'd make a post in response to the most recent GTA4 Let's Play, in which begins with a very "interesting" back and forth between Gavin and Ryan. (note to readers, there are probably a million posts about this, so excuse me)

      To sum it up, for those who haven't seen it: Gavin says that flipping a coin and having it land on heads 3 times in a row is less likely, whereas Ryan implies that flipping a coin will always produce a 50/50 result in it being heads, or that you have a 50% chance of landing heads 3 times in a row.

      And technically, Ryan is correct, but only for one coin flip.

      On one coin flip, there is only 2 possible outcomes: Heads or Tails. So: 50% chance of it landing on heads.
      However, the once a second coin flip is introduced, the chance for consecutive Heads flips in a row decreases by an exponent of 2. Meaning, that now there are 4 possible outcomes: Heads Heads, Heads Tails, Tails Heads, and Tails Tails...
      you now have a 1/4 chance, 25%, to land 2 consecutive Heads. And it gets no easier with 3 flips:
      HHH, HHT, HTH, HTT, TTT, TTH, THT, THH...8 possibilities, or 2^3 (I don't know how to type up exponents).
      You probability of landing 3 consecutive heads is now 12.5%, or half of a half of a half, or 1 in 8. So, theoretically, if you flip a coin 8 times in a set of 3, you will return a with 1 time in which you get 3 straight heads.

      Now, if you flip a coin, and count each flip as a separate data entry, as it were, then you'd always have a 50% chance of landing heads, because you will have ignored the "3 times in a row" objective and now focused on the individual flip, which will always garner a 50/50 flip. But, if you take this route, you have to ignore consecutive's completely, which is not what this argument was about.

      The argument was about landing heads 3 times in a row.

      Love,

      I just read the definition of the term "Fifth Base"...sorry, but "going all the way" needs to stop way before reaching that point...

      so, I was thinking about doing something on here that I used to do on facebook, when I had an account with them. Before I signed off each night, I'd share a joke from a comedian. I'm thinking about bringing that here.

      These jokes may be offensive, racey, foul, whatever, but they're here for you to enjoy none-the-less.
