HOW DID I NOT KNOW THIS?!

No math teacher ever taught me this trick. Got damn.

This is great and all if you know how to subtract things from 100

Ok, let me show you how this thing works.

Say you have two numbers A and B {in the example above 97 and 96} these two numbers can be represented by (100-x) and (100-y) {in the example above x = 3 because 100 – 3 = 97 => 100 – 97 = 3 and y = 4}. Now since A = (100-x) and B=(100 – y) therefore A*B = (100-x)*(100-y).

So if you want to multiply A*B it is the exact same as multiplying (100-x)*(100-y).

Good, so lets expand this sucker

(100-x)*(100-y)=100*100 – x*100 – y*100 -x*-y

So now lets combine things creativity

=(100 – x – y)*100 + x*y

=(100 – (x+y))*100 + x*y

So now you see it. 100-(x+y) shows up in the hundreds place {100-(3+4)=93 in this example} and x*y shows up in the ones place {3*4 = 12 in this example} thus giving the solution {9312}

Now what does that mean, well it means you can use this trick in a much wider application…

Like numbers close to different multiples of 10. For example 1000.

993 * 996

{1000 – 993 = 7}

{1000 – 996 = 4}

{1000 – (7+4) = 1000 – 11 = 989}

{7*4 = 028}

Therefore the first number now goes in the thousands place and the second in the ones place. Meaning

993*996 = 989028

We can also use it for numbers close to numbers that don’t start with 1 like 200.

192*195

{200 – 192 = 8}

{200 – 195 = 5}

{200 – (8+5) = 200 – 13 = 187}

Since 187 shows up in the 200’s place we need to multiply it by 2 to get the number that shows up in the 100’s place thus (187 *2 = 374)

{8*5 = 40}

Thus

192*195=37440

Have Fun!

Hello tumblr allow me to present you the swedish vallhund

i´m VERY confused as you guys are not freaking out about these little guys yet since they´re basically WOLF CORGIS.

I swear to god, I thought it was a photoshop at first.

Oh my Glob, it’s “the little cattle dog of the Vikings”. Not only is it a wolf corgi, but it’s a Viking wolf corgi.

VIKING WOLF CORGI

VIKING WOLF CORGI

The Swedish Vallhund, also know as the Västergötland, is an ancient Spitz breed that was breed and raised as basically an everything dog. Even though their main purpose is to herd (mainly cattle, their small size allows them to dart between the cattle’s legs, but also sheep and goats), they were also expected to be ratters and guard dogs.

It is said by many breed historians that after groups of Vikings broke off from Scandinavia to settle in warmer climate farther south, in places like Wales, that they brought the Vallhunds with them and that is where you get your Pembroke and Cardigan Corgis.

The breed was nearly lost during the world wars, but was brought back from the brink of extinction by K. G. Zettersten and Björn von Rosen and five dogs they were able to find while riding bikes in the Swedish country side.

The dog featured in this post’s name is Trilure Missy, whom her owner calls Misty. She lives Texas at Osafin kennels, though she originally came from a kennel in Canada, which was when this picture was taken, she was so much more fluffy then.

She’s also my puppy, Nea’s, maternal aunt.

The Swedish Vallhund is a wonderful little breed, they’re smart and tenacious, and make great family pets. They have similar temperament to the corgis, but don’t have quite the same nippy attitudes as corgi females and the males are all love bugs.

Viking Wolf Corgis, I love it! That is what I am calling Fae from now on!!!

Sadly, no, the Vallhund does not appear to share a recent lineage with Welsh Corgis. There’s a temptation to make up plausible stories explaining Vallhunds and Corgis. The dogs have similar shapes, and dog enthusiasts have suggested a relationship between the breeds as long ago as the 18th century, based entirely on morphological comparison.

But morphology can lie — Viceroy and Monarch butterflies are not particularly closely related species, despite looking virtually identical, and sharks and dolphins are animals separated by 100s of millions of years of evolution, despite their many similarities.

Recent attempts at using dog genetic data to build a “breed tree,” if you will, have shown the Vallhund is an ancient breed with few unique genetic elements in common with either breed of Welsh Corgi.

Since these breeds are all the same species (dog), it is possible and even likely that genes from Vallhunds have snuck into Corgi lines, and vice versa, but the phylogenetics shows the amount of gene flow has been very low. I should add that phylogenetics is usually used to compare species, not populations of the same species, but here it can be effectively used to exclude close relationships. It just can’t confirm them.

Fae is a combiner of worlds, a real cutie, and a VIKING WOLF LIMEY DWARF DOG.

god bless the people who upload tv shows to the internet

Rome Total War is on sale for a euro on Steam. Thats like the best value for a game since…ever.

Still my fav of the series, probably sank half my teenage years into that it….so worth it.

Crushing a peasant army and then unleashing war dogs on them as they rout muhahaha

OMG I’m craving Pringles!!! I’d slaughter a baby panda for some

You’re making out with your partner and things start to get hot. You start feeling under their shirt only to discover they’re wearing chain-mail.

The Rains of Castamere begins playing.

Dirty maybe, but I resent and deny the bitch part.

I take’em where I can get’em tbh.
