My name is Holly. I'm a 21 year old female college student, currently studying to be a computer engineer. I like video games probably too much and I am devoted to books. I am not afraid to send people dirty limericks.

Expect Supernatural, the Avengers, Dragon Age, the occasional LOTR and Harry Potter, and other things that amuse me.

Sometimes I do interesting stuff in my spare time.

"Believe me," croaked Black. "Believe me, Harry. I never betrayed James and Lily. I would have died before I betrayed them."

And at long last, Harry believed him. Throat too tight to speak, he nodded.

if you didn’t love Balthazar you’re wrong

fun fact: when Titanic came out a company made necklaces that looked like the one Rose wore and put full page ads in Sunday newspapers. The model they got to help sell this Titanic tie in was

Jensen Ackles

When Balthazar unsunk the ship to prevent the movie from being made he also stopped young Mr. Ackles from posing for these ads

The brachistochrone
This animation is about one of the most significant problems in the history of mathematics: the brachistochrone challenge.
If a ball is to roll down a ramp which connects two points, what must be the shape of the ramp’s curve be, such that the descent time is a minimum?
Intuition says that it should be a straight line. That would minimize the distance, but the minimum time happens when the ramp curve is the one shown: a cycloid.
Johann Bernoulli posed the problem to the mathematicians of Europe in 1696, and ultimately, several found the solution. However, a new branch of mathematics, calculus of variations, had to be invented to deal with such problems. Today, calculus of variations is vital in quantum mechanics and other fields.
