Someone is being aggressively wrong about basic math on their own Facebook wall, and has amassed a plethora of agreeing commentors angrily shutting down anyone who tries to question the rightness of their position.
In order not to explode, I am sharing here instead of getting angry at people who are not on my wall or harming me in any way.
(For reference, friend is insisting that the solution to the equation in this article is 1, and that they are breaking mathematical rules to try and explain their "wrong" answer: powerfulmind.co/math-equation/ ).
I'm not angry because I am a feminist. I'm feminist because I'm angry.
Hahaha I saw something similar a few months ago which turned into a huge fight . I was right - I know damn well I was - but this one woman was insisting that she was and was insulting every single person who patiently tried to explain to her that she need to do the multiplication first. In the end it ended up with blockings all over the place

If people don't want to hear something, they aren't going to, so don't bother with them (unless they're in high positions and have important decisions to make. That's the moment to skip them and go straight to the person above them in the hierarchy... (of course this doesn't work in the case of Trump))

RPN! I used to dislike it very much for use in my own calculators, although I understood how much easier it is to write a program that uses it. But at some point I got dissatisfied with the calculator on my smart phone, and went out to find a better. I settled for one that uses RPN because it had a lot of the functions I'm most likely to use, and apparently I've grown to like it. No parens, and the part I used to find difficult—remembering to enter the various terms in the right order—magically isn't difficult at all now.
