Aftermath of the Protests #4: Yes, Seriously, There's More (feat. my opinion)

February 29th, 2016.

A 16-year-old student walks into his classroom in a regular high school. However, in the exact moment when he opens the door, he notices that something is off.

This student learns in a class which includes 35 people in total. However, as it turns out, the amount of kids who went to school that day is...

Well, take a guess. Come on, I won't bite.

The Hungarian railway's train numbering system...

...will revolutionize railways as a whole in Hungary.

Let me chalk it up to all of you who haven't experienced this brilliance yet. This system is going to simplify memorizing different trains by reducing them to four categories:


1.) "személy" - lit. "passenger train"; stops everywhere (marked as S##, where ## is the number of train)
2.) "gyorsított" - "sped up"; skips a few stations (marked as G##)
3.) "zónázó" - "semi-express" (lit. "zoning"); stops everywhere until a set point, skips everything afterwards (marked as Z##)
4.) "express" - stops at one-two stations between terminals (marked as X10) (fun fact, only one of this exists so far, and that only goes back and forth once a week)


Also, it'll give them neato letter/number marks like this:

Do you know how much easier these combinations are to remember than "that one train which goes to the capital"? Seriously, I want to thank the genius who came up with this.

Another Quick Status Update, a.k.a. This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things

Hello once again, everyone!

Yes, I'm back. For some time anyway. And since my posts are getting pretty far between, I'm guessing I owe my remaining few readers an explanation for this.

For one part, it was the insane amount of exams and homework and other crap, which I've detailed in my third aftermath post. However, my inactivity wasn't caused by just that.

Before I tell you one of the reasons, though, I want you to sit down, and be ready to cease communications with me and/or never return to this blog again, since I heard that what I'm doing right now can elicit a lot of hate from some people. Alright, are you ready?...

I'm writing a fanfic. For a certain show I've presented on this blog before.

(In my defense, I think shows with scenes like this deserve a fanfiction about them.)

There are numerous things that led me to writing this: the episode's abrupt ending, which just didn't satisfy me; the fact that writing fanfictions is actually fun; and that it's preparing me for the other project I've started this winter break.

I'm a Middle Schooler... Get Me Out of Here! | Month 2-3: October-November (and a bunch of stuff from December)

Hello once again!

Wow, it took a long while to come back here. There just wasn't enough stuff over the past month for me to talk about in this blog, so... yeah.

However, thanks to the idiocy of everyone during December, I'm now able to come back, and show you what has happened during these past 2 months in my middle school. So...

(People, my hometown and my school will remain nameless for reasons which will be pretty apparent in a moment.)

Also, brace yourself, since an eye-burning title card is also coming!

Yeah, I just couldn't throw this out into the trash bin. Sorry.


Let's start off with October.

Let's just say that October was an uneventful month in terms of my school. In fact, the only thing I can point out is a good one: I finally got a normal grammar textbook.

Of course, this wasn't supplied by the government; since I had to write that I got all of my textbooks or they would've confiscated them all (see part 1 on this one), they gave exactly jackshit about that, and so, I got one from the teachers.

Also, as it turns out, I'm not the only one who got his book order screwed up; when I signed the paper confirming that I got my textbook from the teachers, I noticed that there were at least 14 more students' names on the paper.

Monday's Mandatory Mindf*ck #3: The Amazing World of Gumball

Season's greetings, everyone!

Wow, it's December already. This blog has been running, on and off for over a month. (Though I only posted on 10 days during that period, for which I apologize.) It's... kinda unbelievable. Especially since the weather here is nowhere near what we'd except of December.

Although, some "luckier" fellows woke up to see stuff enclosed in goddamn ice:

(That resembles a mech more than... whatever this thing was.)

So yeah, for most people over here, this Monday still sucks, regardless of it kicking off winter. Thus, to get your minds off this dreadful day, I present to you The Amazing World of Gumball.


If you recall, I had presented its intro as part of my first random, meaningless rambling back in October, and said that it was "equivalent to an acid trip." 

Well, turns out, that intro is nowhere near to capturing the pure, unfiltered insanity this cartoon emits from itself. You know what? I'll stop just talking about it, and let you see for yourself:

By the way, I posted these short clips because I don't want to take risks and post videos that are going to be dead in a few days; I've seen entire episodes taken down at only 14 views, so... yeah. 
If you want to, you can search the episodes up, but then, I have a warning for you: DON'T DO IT IF YOU HAVE EPILEPSY. This series will, eventually, give you a seizure. Yes, it's so likely that I had to put this in bold caps.

Enjoy the clips and the brain-melting stupidity in them, and don't give a crap about the fact that it's Monday. It's not Monday, it's December.

Monday's Mandatory Mindf*ck #2: Some Optical Illusions

Hello once again, everyone!

We all know the Mondays are the worst day of the week. To make them somewhat more bearable, last week, I've started the "Monday's Mandatory Mindf*ck" series. And today, I'm going to continue this tradition with something a little bit more traditional: good ol' optical illusions.

First up, there's the "Eye" optical illusion, which made the rounds on the internet some months ago, if you recall.

Then, there are not one, but two batches of optical illusions "not known by everyone" - which are, actually, very well known. Also, there's an illusion that appears in both videos. Does that mean they aren't interesting? No, of course it doesn't.

Enjoy the illusions, ignore the news (or the lack thereof), and be sure to try and survive this Monday.

Aftermath of the Protests #3: Here We Go Again

Hello yet again, everyone!

First, sorry for being this late. Blame my school: Tuesday I had an English exam, Wednesday a Maths one, Thursday I wrote 3 tests over 2 classes, of which one was a History exam, Saturday, a Maths competition... So yeah.

Anyway, a ton of protests went by during the week, but I don't really want to talk about them, since this blog is being pretty damn boring with 90% of the posts being about the protests. So instead, let's talk about the maths competition.

The competition where we get reminded to eat healthy food:

And when we solve riddles like this: (And yes, this is an actual puzzle from the actual competition.)

"On Protest Island, where there are only 96 people, the government introduced 5 bills. All bills have a 50% approval rate. If a citizen disapproves of at least half of the bills, he or she goes protesting. Exactly how many people can go protesting?"

Okay, okay, fine. sigh I'm doing the aftermath post.
