    [–] Our savior, the Great Albino Squirrel jbp12 7 points ago in gatech

    Perhaps we have not done enough good to deserve him. His presence is predicated on the goodwill we do for each other, not the goodwill he provides to us.

    [–] What’s your story on flashing people or being flashed by someone? jbp12 20 points ago in AskReddit

    My manager didn't find it offensive enough to ban her from the store but told her she needs to keep herself in check or next time she would be.

    Ah, the joys of retail.

    [–] "The odds of finding a winning Mega Millions ticket on the sidewalk are the same as actually buying one." jbp12 1 points ago in AskStatistics

    The frequency of a person finding a winning lottery ticket in the trash, sidewalk, etc happens at the pace of maybe two per year

    That may be the case, but that doesn't account for all the found lottery tickets that are worthless. If you or I find a discarded lottery ticket that ends up being a loser, that's not a newsworthy story, and therefore won't be reported in the news. Do any of your sources mention how many people per year pick up discarded lotto tickets?

    The odds of a lottery ticket that you purchased being a winner are the same as the odds of a discarded lottery ticket winning.

    What do you mean by "a significantly positive numerator"? What fraction are you referring to?

    [–] doubt jbp12 1 points ago in HistoryMemes

    Never an ally...

    [–] How to solve this absolute values question? jbp12 2 points ago in askmath

    What exactly would the upper and lower limits of x be if 2<x<3?

    [–] How to solve this absolute values question? jbp12 5 points ago in askmath

    I would pick an arbitrary feasible value for x (ie, set x=2.5) and see which of the options are correct. This trick is only really useful for multiple choice problems because it allows you to easily eliminate the wrong answers.

    Even more doubt there...

    [–] Where the FUCK is Courseoff??? jbp12 12 points ago in gatech

    It looks like Courseoff now has a workspace for Spring 2019 classes.

    [–] 75 years since Thai-Burma Railway completed at great cost to Australian and Allied soldiers jbp12 6 points ago in history

    The article says ~200,000 SE Asians worked on the railway. A 300,000 casualty claim would be pretty unlikely, even with the harsh conditions and rampant spread of disease.

    [–] Found on r/mapswithoutNZ jbp12 3 points ago in mapgore

    TIL Botswana annexed Namibia

    [–] Saw one about ww1 so why not ww2 as well jbp12 2 points ago in HistoryMemes

    What does this have to do with the USA though?

    [–] (1962, colourized) jbp12 4 points ago in HistoryMemes

    Color didn’t exist in the 60s.

    [–] How can I simplify this? jbp12 2 points ago in askmath

    You can’t simplify it much analytically, but you can apply Stirling’s Approximation to come up with a great approximation for (2n!)/(n!)

    [–] how do i factor this jbp12 2 points ago in askmath

    (x-2)(x-2) = x2-4x+4. You have the wrong factorization of the numerator.
