 why is "olde vampires in high school" the big thing and not "olde vampires
 in college"
 everyone in college is eccentric. everyone
 you wanna wear full on Victorian suit? the girl in pajamas who
 clearly hasn't slept in three days supports you
 everyone is too preoccupied to care as long as you're polite and
 follow class etiquette
 multiple high school diplomas? eh. same stuff. multiple BAs? Enjoy
 learning chemistry AND art history! All in detail!
 wandering around campus at 3am? that's just the lifestyle tm
 *
 no matter how old or young you look it's not really that weird, there's
 sixteen year olds and sixty year olds doing BAs somewhere
 big schools are very anonymous so nobody's gonna bother to hassle
 you

 Also:
 If u put ur blood in a water bottle ppl will assume it's juice and be
 Jealous
 "Oh god I'm a monster" 20 students who r all procrastinating big
 projects say "same simultaniousely and with the exact same tone
 Everything is a joke so if u say "I subsist on the lifeblood of
 mankind" someone will go "lol what a mood*
 It would take u like 100 years to major in everything
 Seen sucking the blood of a fellow classmate and u r instantly the
 campus Cryptid and Mascoft
 Listen. If u have an ethical dilemma go find a philosophy major that
 believes in ethical subjectivism and they'll make u so angry u forget
 abt whatever the fuck was bothering u
 College is the only acceptable place to get into fistfights over

 iterally all u need to do to avoid suspicion is be the guy that alway:s

 A FUN, INTERACTIVE EXHIBITION
 RECOGNISES THE GROUNDBREAKING WORK
 BY WOMEN IN THE GAMES INDUSTRY
 e days of gaming being a boys-only zone are
 well and truly over. Nearly half of all gamers are
 women and, according to the Australian Bureau of
 Statistics, the number of women working in the
 industry rose from 8.7% in 2011-12 to 15% in
 2015-16. But there is still a long way to go, and
 incidents like Gamergate-where female gamers
 and developers in the US were harassed and
 threatened for speaking out against sexism-give
 the industry a bad reputation.
 An exhibition at the Australian Centre for the
 Moving Image (ACMI) called Code Breakers: Women
 in Games aims to change that. Ten female
 programmers, producers, designers and directors
 from Australia and New Zealand are featured, and
 visitors can play their games, which range from big
 studio releases like Little Big Planet and Tricky
 Towers through to more experimental titles.
 As programmer Elissa Harris says in the
 exhibition, "One of the most important things for
 a child growing up is seeing people who look like
 them doing the things they want to be doing.
 More diversity behind the scenes also leads to more
 diversity in the games themselves. Protagonists in
 games used to be mainly men-now there is more
 variety, in culture and race, as well as gender. For
 example, Maru Nihoniho's Metio Interactive produces
 games with Mäori characters, and players can choose
 to play in English or Te Reo Mãori.
 And the good news is, Australia is ahead of the
 curve when it comes to being inclusive. Lisy Kane
 was the first female hire at League of Geeks in 2014
 now the team is 35% women. "The video game
 industry has definitely identified the gender
 mbalance problem," she says. "They've accepted it
 and taken it on board and want to improve it."

Bad, Bill Nye, and Blade: RRT Industries, Ltd.
 @RRTIndustries
 imagine if the dude from Captain
 Kangaroo starting thinking he was
 an actual ship captain and went
 around lecturing people on
 maritime navigation, law, logistics,
 etc
 that's exactly what @BillNye did
 but with science

<p>Wait, isn’t Bill Nye an actual scientist?</p>

<p>Mechanical engineer if I remember correctly, so no</p>
</blockquote>
<p>STEM degree, so yes.</p>
</blockquote>

<p>Except he’s not a scientist, he is an engineer. </p>
<p>Trust me, it’s different. </p>
<p>S - Science (scientists)</p>
<p>T - Technology (technicians, can also minorly overlap with others</p>
<p>E - Engineering (engineers)</p>
<p>M - Managment (those who manage others. Usually they’re managing the engineers, because boy do they need it. Often referred to as Managment) </p>

<p style="">…the M stands for Mathematics…</p>

<p>You are right. </p>
