i hate watching shows with happy cute groups of friends because they remind me that i don’t have that
dont talk about how cheap it is to eat healthy ever unless youve literally been at the grocery store with your last 6 dollars like “okay let me figure out how to feed 8 people with this”
I don’t think Florida’s even a real place anymore.
tonight is the first night in a long time that i’ve actually had time to cook real food!! its so yummy!! veggie burder on a bagel thin and some roasted red potatoes with chili powder <3__<3
but like you always hear people saying ‘___ many people tuned in!’ and I’ve heard people say stuff about ‘tuning in’…how does that work then?
well i mean i don’t know everything about how its done but i think its just based on the sampling of people that they send the notebooks out to. like, they make sure they’re distributed evenly amongst households of various demographics so that the results they get are as close as possible to an accurate estimate of what the actual number of viewers was. i’m sure there’s a lot of math involved. statisticians devote thier whole careers to stuff like this! and…”tuning in” doesn’t really mean anything…it just means watching a tv show…its just a phrase we still use, leftover from the days when you actually had to turn a knob on your tv to tune it into a channel, like you would a radio (a radio with a knob, that is)

hmmm i have been seeing a lot of stuff encouraging people to watch Almost Human tonight to help boost its ratings…but…that’s…not really how the rating system works…there’s not like a device in your tv that let’s the network know what show you are watching…i guess i only know this b/c my family participated once, but the neilsen ratings come from a group of randomly selected people, and they send you a little notebook, and for like a month, you write down everything you watch and when you watch it. then they use the data from that cross-section of people and multiply it to estimate how many people total watched it. so like…unless you happen to be participating in the ratings survey…it doesn’t really make a difference whether or not you are watching it because of a post you saw on tumblr??? but i mean, of course its good to watch and support a show you really like, but i’m just sayin don’t feel bad if you can’t watch or if the ratings don’t refelct the activism and interest that took place on tumblr
can anyone reccommend a good (but affordable) watercolor set?
