Engineering vs Math Majors
A math and engineering convention was being held. On the train to the convention, there were both math majors and engineering majors. Each of the math majors had his/her own train ticket. But the Engineers had only ONE ticket for all of them. The math majors started laughing and snickering. The engineers ignored the laughter.
Then, one of the engineers said, “Here comes the conductor”. All of the engineers piled into the bathroom. The math majors were puzzled. The conductor came aboard and collected tickets from all the math majors. He went to the bathroom, knocked on the door, and said, “Tickets Please”. An engineer stuck their only ticket under the door. The conductor took the ticket and left. A few minutes later, the engineers emerged from the bathroom. The math majors felt really stupid.
On the way back from the convention, the group of math majors had ONE ticket for their group. They started snickering at the engineers, who had NO tickets amongst them.
When the engineer lookout shouted, “Conductor coming!”, all the engineers again piled into a bathroom. All of the math majors went into another bathroom. Then, before the conductor came on board, one of the engineers left the bathroom, knocked on the other bathroom, and said, “Ticket please.”
Today, my father tried to convince me that he had an OTP.
And that they have a love child…
HEY, REMEMBER THAT TIME STERICA WAS GOING TO BE A THING? AND THEY STARTED GIVING THEM MOMENTS SO PEOPLE COULD SHIP THEM?
ERICA SHOVING STILES UP AGAINST A WALL…
…WHICH DEREK ALREADY DID.
STILES MAKING AN AWESOME POINT ABOUT WHY HE HAS A BRAIN AND ERICA DOESN’T.
STILES MAKING AN AWESOME POINT ABOUT WHY HE HAS A BRAIN AND DEREK DOESN’T.
STILES BEING ALL SNARKY AND PLEASED WITH HIMSELF.
(PLEASE ALSO NOTE THAT DEREK IS MUCH CLOSER TO STILES THAN ERICA IS, FOR MUCH LONGER, AND IN THE STEREK VERSION THE CAMERA IS ALWAYS AT THE SIDE, SHOWING BOTH OF THEIR PROFILES CONSTANTLY, EMPHASISING THE RELATIONSHIP. THE ONLY TIME YOU GET A PROFILE SHOT IN THE STERICA PUSHING AGAINST THE WALL SCENE IS WHEN SHE TURNS TO LOOK AT THE CAMERA BEHIND HER, WHICH DOES NOT EMPHASISE THE RELATIONSHIP AT ALL BECAUSE IT’S TO SHOW HER LOOKING AWAY. AHEM.)
AND, OOO, LOOK AT ALL THESE OTHER PARALLELS:
WATCHING DEREK WALK AWAY.
WATCHING ERICA WALK AWAY.
HOLDING ERICA WHEN SHE NEEDS HELP, BOTH MAKING A DELIBERATE ATTEMPT TO MEET EACH OTHER’S GAZES.
HOLDING DEREK WHEN HE NEEDS HELP, BOTH MAKING A DELIBERATE ATTEMPT TO MEET EACH OTHER’S GAZES (AND SRSLY, SO MUCH HARDER TO DO HERE, BUT THEY’RE TRYING).
DEREK LURKING BEHIND STILES SILENTLY, SURPRISING HIM.
ERICA DOING THE SAME THING.
HMM, JEFF DAVIS. THESE ARE SOME V V INTERESTING CHOICES.
