Karen the CFO put all the trust in that handy dandy, malfunctioning calculator. Turns out Karen would've been much better served if she'd listened to other people's opinions, and not assumed that a calculator that couldn't even factor in the proper order of operations, was correct. No, Karen. That is not how it works.

Dudes do the Math on If a Fart Could Propel Someone in Zero G

Finally, the answer to the question that's been burning you up inside for years. Given that this is all about getting around space using the force of pushing gases out of valves, this is technically rocket science. For another fun physics lesson, here's Tumblr uncovering the legend of the fastest manhole cover ever. For more fart stuff, here's deaf kids learning about farts.

Short Tumblr Thread on Centaurs Asks The Hard Questions

Tumblr has a never ending interest in mythical creatures, and naturally, people are inclined to ask difficult questions. Since centaurs aren't a real thing, people just kind of use their imaginations, general concensus, math and doodles to get to the bottom of things. For another interesting one, here's the time a doctor on twitter asked where you would defibrillate a centaur.

Tumblr users ask what centaurs can breed with | volcel-official Then question is, would be morally acceptable centaur mate with normal horse Ma pain-and-missouri And would offspring be like? trashcanbees 50% 75% 100% kompanie-mutter hate all this trashcanbees Bigot

Then you get to see what people have done with the games since then, like a gaming escape artists and a synopsis of the insane endeavor that was "Twitch Plays Pokemon." Wild stuff.
