Lupita Nyong’o’s brother celebrating her Oscar nom
Imagine Spock seeing the terran tradition of getting loved ones flowers, but gets a broccoli head for Jim because "it shares similar characteristics to the bouquet that many terrans are fond of, but has the added nutritional benefit of a vegetable." He thinks he's so logical. Jim thinks he's the biggest dork ever.
Jim has no idea what’s about to go down.
And once I’m gone, I’ll finally be at peace.
I just wanted to say farewell, see you and kiss you one last time.
Inspired by this beautiful song.
What it feels like to stumble across an old fandom of yours :D

❝ [F]or the first several years the SAT was offered, males scored higher than females on the Math section but females achieved higher scores on the Verbal section. ETS policy-makers determined that the Verbal test needed to be “balanced” more in favor of males, and added questions pertaining to politics, business and sports to the Verbal portion. Since that time, males have outscored females on both the Math and Verbal sections. Dwyer notes that no similar effort has been made to “balance” the Math section, and concludes that, “It could be done, but it has not been, and I believe that probably an unconscious form of sexism underlies this pattern. When females show the superior performance, ‘balancing’ is required; when males show the superior performance, no adjustments are necessary.” ❞

And then people urge me everything is fine, of course it is, when you’re ignoring statistics that is.
Fun fact: SAT tests predict college performance pretty well for men, but they strongly underpredict college performance for women. http://spp.sagepub.com/content/early/2012/12/20/1948550612469038.abstract
