# Why are variables always x,y,z or a,b,c?

2021.12.09 08:14 daywrecker2012 Why are variables always x,y,z or a,b,c?

I asked this 30 years ago to my calculus teacher. As for example would be x+1=2 and then solving for x. I asked why it was always x that we started with when working on equations and she said something like X's can represent a value. I responded that anything could represent a value. "Happy face can represent a value". She shook her head no and said that happy face has no value and as such cannot represent a variable. Me thinking I was indeed very clever said "well it has face value", which earned me a kicking out of class for the day for being a nuisance or something.
So anyway, I never got an answer. Why do we always use, or start with, x,y,z when representing variables?

2021.12.09 08:14 ralleeeee12 A Good Way Of Using DEC, SPS and Cards To Get More Airdrop Points = More SPS Airdropped Daily!

A good way of using SPS, cards and DEC for higher airdrop count of SPS.
So, I have played Splinterlands for nearly 8 month now and getting the famous SPS airdrop like many others. I'm kinda new to to this "Play´N Earn" era which has started to explode both in volume and users. I' by no means a high ranked player in Splinterlands even doh I love playing it. I don't have enough money neither to buy the cards I want. If I'm honest have I barley no money, due to the hardcore drug abuse I had which left me homeless for quite a while.
But cryptocurrencies is my true passion and I'm sure it can change my life with the touch of Splinterlands. So I promised myself to find a way to utilize the little money I have in the best way. There are many ways to use SPS and the airdrop in a good way and I will tell my strategy around it.
So, the more airdrop point you have the more SPS you get which is easy to figure out. In this airdrop are we getting vouchers as well which could be used in the pre-sale to buy packs but we also know that the vouchers will have other uses soon. Now we both want to get as much vouchers as possible and SPS.
I'm sure there are better strategies than mine, but my strategy is to both get as much SPS as possible as vouchers, I don't go 100% for just one thing. It's all about the balance.

The SPS I get do I use in this way.
50% of the SPS airdropped do I stake to even get more SPS thru the interest rate but also to get vouchers which I'm sure will have a nice use case in the future. We also help Splinterlands economy thru this and making SPS less volatile.
The other 50% do I transfer to my wallet on BSC. The SPS I now have on BSC do I swap against DEC when I find a good rate between those two to get as much DEC as possible. I now transfer the DEC I have into Splinterlands again. This raises the amount of airdrop points I have (The DEC you have in your wallet on BSC aslo counts into the airdrop points, if you have linked it)
With this strategy do I get both get vouchers and more SPS thru having more DEC which raises the airdrop points, the amount of SPS you get airdropped will always get higher. This do I do once a week to get more SPS airdropped every week. I also by this tactic get more of two different cryptocurrencies instead of just getting more SPS. Here do you get a balance of both getting vouchers, SPS and even a higher amount of SPS airdropped every week + gathering more DEC.
We can even during this airdrop of SPS utilize our cards to get more SPS airdropped, let me explain. We all have cards we don't play that much and even duplicates with some of them. Many of these cards sells at a higher value in DEC at the marketplace than their dec burn value. If we then sell these cards do we get more airdrop points thus getting more SPS. Why hold cards we don't play or don't like to play?, when we instead could get more SPS airdropped by selling those. In the long run will this get you more SPS, vouchers and even more DEC\*
\*You get more DEC also, if you follow the first tactic explain about what to do with the airdropped SPS (Selling 50% of the airdropped SPS against DEC).

Summary: With this tactic will you get more of every important resource in Splinterlands (SPS, DEC and vouchers) in a balanced way. I'm not saying this is the best tactic to use but it's a good tactic of gathering those resources I think is important in Splinterlands. I hope you liked the article and find something in it useful for your journey in Splinterlands and what to do with the airdrop.

2021.12.09 08:14 Valuable_Ad3041 Did you do better in high school/secondary school than in primary? Might be more relatable if you have ASD or ADD

Hey again, this question just popped up in my head.
The reason I ask is because I was never tested for anything as a child, but came across the term "gifted" in my early 20s, when someone suggested I was. My background has left me pretty doubtful of my intelligence, so I'm hesitant to take on the label (if for no other reason than to know myself better).
I remember struggling in primary school, and later even found out that my parents had been recommended to keep me out of school for a year longer. In grade 4 something like this was suggested again and the teacher was surprised when my parents told them I had (re)read the entire Harry Potter series, starting when I was 7. I was too quiet in school or too distracted, ignoring what I was told sometimes.
In high school, the material became way easier for me to understand. I found algebra a lot easier than simple multiplication or subtraction, homework was just going through the motions so I didn't get in trouble. I wasn't exactly a straight A student because I lacked motivation and coasting by was good enough for me. I didn't learn how to study properly until I started uni/college.
I know now that I have ASD and ADD, something I showed a lot of signs for in hindsight. Is this at all relatable?

2021.12.09 08:14 dawnfire05 Curious who here feels like their alterhuman identity (if you identify as such) affects their gender identity directly

I identify as alterhuman. For a few reasons, but overall I identify with/as dragons, reptiles, lizards, crocs, etc. And I specifically desire to be seen as a lizard boy. I don't feel complete gender euphoria being seen as just a boy/guy, even in a nonbinary or xenic sense. But then when my alterhuman identity as being a reptile is called into question, I feel so euphoric when being seen as a lizard boy. I feel like my gender identity is directly affected by my alterhuman identity and I'm wondering if anybody else feels this way.
Also, is there a gender for this?

2021.12.09 08:14 rachelbaker90 Which is better: yoga or gym?

Yoga is said to be the antiquated art for physical and psychological wellness. Whereas, the gym focuses more on physical exercise and weight reduction.
Yoga isn't the end all be all, yet it is really astonishing. When you figure out how to connect your mind and body through your breath, you move gracefully.
Yoga is something you can practice for the entire life. Heading off to the gym can feel like a task, yoga will dependably feel like you're giving yourself a treat.
So in my opinion, Yoga is way better than gym. What you guys think?
