No More Lonely Friends

17 August 2021 - 10:34 AM

A really positive story about a young adult Marissa who was initially excluded by her friends for a birthday party and turned it into real-life meet-ups No More Lonely Friends.  

 

I know during Covid, I've definitely been much more secluded than normal without workplace colleagues, family, or even close friends whom I would normally hang out with.  And while I enjoy some aspects of the peace and quiet every day and the benefits of working from home (no pants Zoom calls!), I've definitely become more aware of the lack of social interactions.  Have any of you been feeling lonelier during covid and what have you missed?

A Lesson in Fractions

19 January 2021 - 11:25 PM

A math teacher welcomed a new French exchange student into her class and then started teaching a lesson on fractions.

The French exchange student raised his hand and said, "Excuse me Madam, but I don't know how to say fractions. How do you say those?"

 

"Easy," said the teacher, "you just say the top number and then the bottom number is read as an ordinal number. For example, 2/3 is 'two-thirds', 3/4 is 'three-fourths', and 2/5 is 'two-fifths'."

 

"Thanks, I understand, "said the exchange student.

 

"Good," said the teacher, and then asked the student, "so how do you say 4/8?"

 

"Should I reduce?" asked the boy.

 

"That would be best," said the teacher.

 

"One-second," said the boy.

 

"Take as long as you need," said the teacher.

 


Shutdown of Parler

I'm curious if anyone on TR has any thoughts about the shutdown of Parler, a far right social media platform? 


Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to the TylersRoom community! Any special holidays or plans?

I'm starting mine early today with a visit to the parents, then early Black Friday shopping on Friday starting at 6:00 AM to buy some new running shoes.
