and idk even know where to begin with me

fell hard into painkillers over the past few years living in key west so i got tf outta dodge a couple months ago and cleaned up off of them

moved to north carolina with a couple that were my roommates in florida, turns out his true colors are that of a mentally abusive fuckwad who literally tried to fight me last night, pushed me and everything

SO now his (now ex) girlfriend and i having been staying in hotels for the past two nights just get the hell away from him, we're good friends and just figuring out what's next with getting a place to live etc.

otherwise? my mental health is at an all-time best lately and im making decent money and living the best life i can so it's just the motherfucker of all mixed bags at the moment

that screaming match with the boyfriend last night had me feeling kinda good today, relieving to let loose on a megalomaniac that had it coming

he kept trying to get me to fight him last night and at one point said "here, I'll give you one free shot. Take your best shot." and i whipped out my phone without hesitation and said "dont you have a warrant for your arrest right now? im calling the police. Thanks for the free shot, retard."

I didn't actually call the police but he walked away for a bit and it felt good to beat him with brains over braun

Hell yeah dude, that sounds great. Both the mental health and the painkiller situation. The roommate situation seems real fucked though, but it looks to me like everything is coming up milhouse. 

If we're #realtalk right now, I went to the ER two days ago because I was coughing up black. They essentially told me "don't worry about it" and sent me home.

jeez man, sounds like a Florida hospital alright

do you smoke? like, I cant even fathom what that would be a symptom of, an esophageal ulcer maybe? My fake love doctor degree didnt prepare me for this, you should maybe get an upper GI endoscopy or see a pulmonologist

im currently trying to correlate features of a jigsaw puzzle to the time it takes to do the puzzle

things that factor into it:
- size of pieces
- number of pieces
- shape of the pieces
- inter-piece color contrast (a puzzle of blank white pieces would have none of this)
- intra-piece color contrast (a puzzle where every piece is a different solid color would have none of this)



[Image: WgvEy3X.png]

consider this puzzle of a tree. the circled/shaded red area would have some intra-piece color contrast because each piece would have a bit of trunk and a bit of sky for example. the non-circled areas of just solid color/texture would have no intra-piece contrast because they're all the same color. the puzzle as a whole is pretty high contrast color-wise, even if it's simple. sometimes a puzzle has very visually distinct pieces but with very low contrast. look at these:

bombardment of algiers - 9000 pieces

CMYK - 1000 pieces

ive seen it posted to weird jigsaw puzzle mommy blogs that when you double the pieces, you quadruple the time taken but this is just demonstrably false. i traced the claim back to a paper that was (iirc) just measuring a computer's ability to descramble squares which is far from what a human doing a jigsaw puzzle is.

ive been doing puzzles of different sizes and timing how long it takes me. here's a plot of those averages:

[Image: Juxh66g.png]

a 2000 piece, which i havent timed yet, should be a little under 14 hours for me. if you go by the double-quadruple estimate, it should take me more than two and a half days straight

of course, there's a few problems. the more i do the same puzzle, my times get faster. should i use the fastest time possible? should i force myself to go at a leisurely speed? i also dont adhere to any real strategy other than putting pieces that are alike together

in this way, a puzzle is treated almost like a set of many puzzles and then linked together. in fact, many of the largest puzzles are just mosaics of smaller puzzles:

to this point, i wonder when a X piece puzzle is just two X/2 piece puzzles and the time taken might just be linear. also, you know what's bullshit? they mail you these giant, 50K piece puzzles in SEPARATE BAGS so that you can do them as individual puzzles out of the box and then just stitch them together later.
