Hey Stiffler! I know you and K met online, so I was wondering if you recommend any website/program to meet people online?? Maybe some sort of chat room (I don't even know if people still use those)? Sorry for the weird question!

No.

That’s not to be rude or anything, it’s just that we met online back in the late ’90s, so needless to say, the internet has changed a lot since then and those sorts of chats just don’t exist anymore.

Instead, I’ll offer you advice: the best way to find someone is to not look for them. No, really.

In an era with matchmaking sites and apps like OKCupid, Tinder, and god knows what else, it seems like people are trying to make finding their perfect mate as simple as finding the right algorithm. That’s not how K and I found each other at all. I’ll give you the dirty truth:

We roleplayed together. A lot. Like, hundreds of hours of deep, dark nerdy stuff before we even got to know each other personally. We played lots of different characters off each other and happened to enjoy our chemistry together enough to eventually start chatting on a personal basis. That led to hours of chatting about everything under the sun and only after years of that, we got romantic, and the rest is officially history.

The moral to that story is that, sometimes, the right person takes a lot of time. It can help to think outside of the usual Dating Box; instead of meeting someone with the intention of a relationship and sussing out all of the detailed personal stuff and interests after the fact, try the whole thing backwards. Go to communities, chatrooms, and group activities that suit your interests, develop a rapport between those people, and make bonds. You could be surprised.*

*(I mean, hell, at the time we met, I swore I would never date anyone in my life, and I was lying about my age and sex online. Neither K or I expected to fall for each other at first, but that’s what happens when you don’t try. A parting piece of trivia for your thoughts.)

Science side of tumblr: how hard thing become squishy thing?

Simple. When anything hits a hard, unmovable surface at a high enough speed, considering Newton’s Third Law of Motion, there has to be an equal and opposite reaction, and in this case, that reaction takes the form of the softer, more malleable object conforming to the motion of the reaction.
Consider it like a tennis ball hitting the wall, but with more on the inside, and more speed
