Chronicle: What Kids Would Actually Do with Superpowers

 Let me start by making one thing clear:  Chronicle is not like the Covenant with kids who have telekinesis instead of magic powers.  This point is important because I was not really looking forward to seeing what I thought was a rehash of that annoying movie.  Yet again, the marketing is just a little off, […]

And if they are does that mean that you can switch out rings that are 8.0mm with a diameter of 1.6mm for rings with a diameter of 9.5mm and a thickness of 1.6mm? The above paragraph probably gives you flashbacks to the math class and word problems, right? Except this isn’t actually a word problem. It’s the type of mathematical wrangling that’s involved when making chainmaille jewelry. That’s right, making jewelry involves mathematical computations. Jewelry isn’t the only thing. Lots of things that women often do, things that men like to call women’s “crafty” things often involve complicated math. The problem? Crafts aren’t where you would think to find complicated mathematical equations so both men and women often dismiss it, perpetuating the cycle of “girls hate math.” […]
