The most useful description of difference between alligator and crocodile (both don't seem to have legs!)

This looks interesting...
 
Ladies and Gentlemen ... The +Evernote +Moleskine has arrived!! The complete "unpackaging" with captions! Looks like a Moleskine. Smells like a Moleskine. But garbed in Evernote awesomeness with a air of magic with "smart stickers" and mysterious pages that make the ink pop out even more with the Evernote Smart Camera!! And now, my Moleskine awaits me to enter loving sonnets and sweet productivity prose! :)

(I thought I'd never do one of these, but alas, here it is!)

I don't understand how "more guns, not less" is supposed to be the answer. Let's look at a scenario in the current world and in the "more guns, not less" world.

Current world: A guy walks into a school and starts shooting students and teachers. Many people die until eventually the shooter kills himself.

"More guns, not less" world: A guy walks into a school and starts shooting students and teachers. In theory some teacher bravely starts shooting back at some point and possibly kills the shooter. Likely between when the shooter starts and when he is killed, some number of students/teachers are killed.

In both those scenarios some number of students/teachers are killed and the shooter dies. The only difference is how many students/teachers are killed.

How helpful is the consolation to the parents/siblings/loved ones of the dead in the latter scenario that "at least fewer people died than if that teacher didn't have that gun?"
Their loved ones are still dead! All the people in the room still witnessed a horrific thing and will need trauma therapy for years!

Why don't we just work towards the world where there are no guns? If the guns were not available, then none of the above scenarios could happen and no one would have to die or be traumatized for life.

If there were more guns in schools, not only would we be probably still be subjected to school shootings (after all, it's now a contest, not a slaughter!), but we'd inevitably be hearing regular stories about accidental shootings of a kid who brandished a water pistol, etc.

Even simple math is beautiful, fun and surprising

Take a look at this diagram. It seems simple, doesn't it? HAH!

It means 1+...+11 = (11x12)/2 = 11x6 (the sides of the rectangle)
more generally, you'll always be able to arrange the integers 1 through n so that they fit into a rectangle with sides n/2 and n+1 (if n is even) or (n+1)/2 and n (if n is odd)
