Oops I missed Week 29 [OopsidentA 3 of 7]

Note: In 2020, I’m writing 52 blog posts, one per week, released on Wednesdays or so…This is a placeholder entry for Wednesday July 15, and yet it is also part three of seven in this thingymabopper for today I call OopsidentA!

When I was in middle school and high school, back in Texas, I used to make a lot of jokes and get in trouble thereupon, but in my opinion, too many powerful people at that overpriced K-12 paid too much attention to the mundane aspects of my prankstering and too little attention to the semantic meaning of whatever I was actually saying in my jokes. More precisely, I might have said something strange and then got told to go to whichever authority’s office, due to the challenging pitch of my voice or due to my challenging facial expressions or my challenging all-black shaved-head Pantera-like get-up or something negligible like that; yet, if anybody actually bothered (the other musicians did bother, mirable dictu!) to translate the semantic or mathematical meaning of whatever I was saying in the multilingual joke, they then would understand there was a lot more to my prank than just being another challenging and traumatized teenage boy, although maybe not, that’s for someone else besides me to decide.

(Only a few days ago, I remembered some telephone calls decades back involving a middle school language teacher in the South Central Region of the United States, but in an important dissimilarity to the caricature-opponents of Mike Tyson’s Punch Out!!, I don’t want to telegraph every last thingy, even if that were possible as I think Parmenides might argue!)

So then, very recently (influenced by a bunch of random computer alphanumerics too nyminous to list; I have no idea what these sets of alphanumerics actually might be theorized to include, hell, they could have been bots, like the programs that write the articles regarding sport and stock market statistics in the United States’ few remaining deadtree newspapers), I sort of like, studied maths or something? So I’ll kind of put a picture below about that (gimme a few minutes), because I’m highly annoyed at having to repeatedly explain this stuff to mental health professionals across my lifespan. These mental health professionals probably check my blog and don’t mention it (nor their various turf wars over unique sales points in the health industry sector and the therapists not doing their clinical supervision in front of the patient; in the Open Dialogue method, the therapists in fact do their ‘clinical supervision’ in front of the patient so that everyone can participate), kind of like me trying to explain to the mental health professionals (across my lifespan) that yes, I recently-ish know ‘adrenal fatigue’ is ‘out of bounds’ in the United States as a concept, but the 1944 study by Dr. Perry Baird cross-referenced by Mimi Baird’s later book about him He Wanted The Moon (I mean, who could blame him?) is still relevant to trying to figure out if my adrenal cortices would exhibit any gross hypergenesis on a simple ‘imaging scan’ (or whatever substitute good a medical-economist might put there, operating on the level of USian high school micro-economics and its endless algebraic multiplicands), without me mentioning that in general it’s kind of an and/or if there’s relevance between the plight I lately hypothesize my adrenal cortices are in and whether the United States will face either a hard coercion ground invasion by a non-domestic opponent for the first time in a very very long time, or the seductive coercion equivalent, as the United States already did: see my in-person reporting in 2018 from Putingate whistleblower Reality Winner’s sentencing hearing (that is to say, Ms. Winner revealed evidence about propaganda-type coercion emanating from Russia, the battering ram of China, and Ms. Winner continues to suffer imprisonment in Fort Worth, Texas), and see as well as 2014’s “Free will and seductive coercion” by Heather Marsh and then this 2014 blog post “How we came to be ruled by Death Eaters” by Heather Marsh too (and if you do read or better yet, re-read, that second blog post of hers, take care to note that the word “resembles” does not mean “equals” — as the George Carlin bitbyte on Baseball versus US-Football might help clarify; like, even USian-football players giving each other concussions on the regular [a really vile practice which involves lies to kids from adults among other things] can become snuggly friends, as appropriate, as much as I am personally reluctant to concede that point, about the sportsball I mean and the damn US-football coaches). Now all that being said, many of these medical industry professionals across my more recent lifespan are actually pretty damn awesome given the context (Seattle; the-ship-has-sailed-on-fixing-the-United-States; so on) and the fact that, given the context, I’m a goofball who might politely experiment with how much it might confuse selves to stare at not-a-mirror and just sort of ponder THAT IT WILL BE CONSIDERED THAT PEOPLE MIGHT NEED TO ROUTINELY DO STUFF while thinking about arpegrogressions, and decjrodalades-old video game music. Now for the promised picture, except after another paragraph.

Delta(x) / Delta(t) is actually correct and it does make a difference, if you wanna leave endless algebraic multiplicands anyway (which is arguable in my opinion, at least for some coordinate pairs!), because it’s not actually Delta(x) / Delta(y), that is the differential coefficient in pre-calculus, or calculus, or something, unless Delta loves to fly and it shows, which probably has something to do with the United States Central Intelligence Agency and all the evil that people, unethically, don’t talk about usually, because we need, um, inquires and I think I’m supposed to get back to working on that, not thinking of it so singlehandedly these times around. There’s some sort of thing in calculus’ related rates called “the chain rule” but I haven’t understood it yet because every time I see that noun phrase, it just makes me think of Rob Halford (as in this 1984 classic by Judas Priest), not unlike how someone recently told me on a long-distance-communicator-which-allows-amplitude (e.g., shortwave radio, telephonic gizmo-phone, grainy black-and-white video of a brief semaphoring dance) that each and every time he sees the string “Chomsky“, he just reads it as “Quaalude.” Here’s the picture:

This is just a screenshot of today's English Wikipedia entry for differential coefficient. I mean, a screenshot does count as a picture.
Well, of course the article does not cite any sources acceptable to the nonprofit-plus-mansplainy-editors behind Wikipedia; the pictured entry is siloed by the English language version of Wikipedia, and further, at least as far as I can reckon, USian English (not British? idk…) is Command-and-Conquered by the USian 1950s where all refrigerators are the same size even in the year 2020.

And nevertheless I persist in moving along…
