IRHP, fun fact if you didn't realize already: you can arrange a bunch of things in a cube formation when the number you have is a perfect cube (like 2^3). And 64 = 4^3, so it happens to be one. So if you had 64 N64s (or 64 Ns?) you would have exactly the number for a 4x4x4 cube. It'd probably be best to go with a cube of 64 N64s.

Oh hai VG_Addict!
what have i done to you to deserve math

@VG_A You know, it's a stimulant? "Adderall" as a prescription for ADD, "speed" as a street drug? Greatly increases motivation, concentration, interest, and wakefulness, and when you get dependent and withdraw, you have none, and can't bring yourself to do or enjoy anything, even playing a game. Either way at least it's not addictive, but withdrawal is long and boring.

@IRHP lol i'm sorry man... it's hardly complicated though, just saying you could make a cube with 64 N64s :p... I used to be a math major though so unfortunately i actually like math. i'm not sure whether it's worse that i like math or yanderes. or broccoli and kale? or, like. my chemical romance? god i'm terrible.

broccoli is good with cheese and it is good without cheese and that's what an independent variable is probably

Once again I'm going to mention my old cat who liked stealing and eating just steamed broccoli. As with asparagus and string beans. So even the literal carnivore agrees broccoli is good, somehow. My new cat likes only normal cat foods and the fact that I can eat and not get attacked or be forced to share just makes me miss my old one more.

He didn't like kale though but I seriously love it and I can eat it raw even when I have no appetite. Maybe *that's* abnormal?

Math was my weakest subject in school. But I discovered Khan Academy, and I found it's not really that difficult.

Yeah I think math education isn't in the best state, and a lot of people could be better at everyday math and arithmetical reasoning if better introduced to it.

Is "independent variable" a fancy way of saying "lie"? Beause broccoli isn't good without cheese. Or at least butter.

Broccoli with soy sauce and other mixed vegetables like in Chinese. Broccoli cooked in olive oil with garlic and red pepper flakes, Italian style. You really think neither of those is delicious?

An independent variable is something you change between trials of an experiment to see if it has effects on the outcome (dependent variables.) One would be like... the presence of the cheese itself between phases of tasting broccoli. Which you'd toggle to see if it affected the deliciousness (the dependent variable.)

Good morning and welcome to Misc, WoT364. *leaves a giant pile of marshmallows* I've always wondered what it would be like to jump into a pile of those extra-large marshmallows... :D

Math is actually easy and fun if you understand it, but all of the math classes I know of teach it in the worst possible way.

Also, I don't like broccoli.

broccoli G O O D, i could eat sauteed broccoli by the pound. it's also great in chicken alfredo and chinese food. not crazy about raw broccoli though. it's kinda tough and doesn't really taste like anything.

math is fun but advanced math is too committal. like i spend 10 minutes on a problem then find out i got one number wrong and i have to do the whole thing over again and that's really frustrating.

honestly with most vegetables i like them cooked, but don't like them raw

I'm coming around to some of them (like I eat raw onion in tacos or coney dogs now when I used to hate them) but overall this is the case

Math for fun really is a crazy notion to me, though maybe not when you think about it. Video games contain a lot of simple math and that's fun. Maybe there's a way to include more advanced math without it being some monstrosity of an edutainment product.

Yeah, onions are good on tacos, and cilantro too.
