View Full Version : why The Pirate is good at math and also life

Hey guys, I thought I'd share these with everybody.

Last semester I had this really really lame math class with a teacher whom I dislike. The worst part being that it was a two period long course, in other words, two solid hours long. The equally worst part was that nearly half of the semester was spent on a unit about quadratic functions, which I learned ages ago. I hate quadratic functions, I hate parabolas, I hate equations of the form 0 = ax˛ + bx + c, I hate everything about them because in that ****ing class we ****ing did them forever for some dumb ****ing reason even though it's really simple math that doesn't deserve that much attention.

Anyways, as an alternative to actually paying attention and doing work, I spent the entire class drawing in my binder. Most of my drawings were small inane sketches, but every once in a while, during a particularly boring class, I would sit down and create a masterpiece, requiring nearly a whole hour of the class to complete.

In the semester, I created 12 such masterpieces. And now, I share them with you all, (photographed from a digital camera because I don't own a scanner).


This drawing is the icon of badassness. It's an octopus, smoking a cigar, with guns, a knife, and a set of ****ing nunchucks. How much more badass of a drawing could I possibly conceive?


My teacher didn't exactly appreciate my sense of humour regarding suicide. I'm lucky I didn't get sent to a psychiatrist when she saw drawings like this...


...Or this


One of my favorites. This is the kind of stupid shit that runs through my head when I'm bored out of my mind.


No joke here. But there is a reference to a Primus song.


This is the classic, my favorite of all of them. This drawing gained somewhat of a cult following amongst the class, a few guys said if I put it on a t-shirt they would buy one. Sadly, this idea never came to light.


Probably inspired by tricky the clown, and madness.


An ungodly abomination with tentacles crawling forth from a hellish abyss.


The weirdest of the bunch, it just doesn't fit with any of the others. I still don't know what I was thinking when I drew this, but it's very elaborate and looks like something I wasted easily a whole hour of class drawing. Possibly inspired by Brackenwood?


Another bit of humour my teacher probably wouldn't appreciate. Luckily she didn't see most of these drawings.


A close second favorite. Drawing a rainbow is hard when you're working in greyscale...


And the last one. At first it was just the plane and wall, but shortly after drawing it I realized I just had to add some scientists monitoring the experiment.

And to answer the question implied in the thread title. The reason I rule at math and life is that despite not paying attention to a word she said, drawing dumb shit, and never doing any of the in class work whatsoever, I passed this particular math class with a 93% average.

It was like metaphorically kicking the teacher apart.

Probably inspired by tricky the clown, and madness.

That one looks obscenely like that 'vote clown' sig I made ages ago during the period of everyone voting for ninjas pirates and clowns.

I'll find it later.

Anyway, the drawings are great, you should make the 'Happiness' one into a wallpaper, I would so totally use it.

I love the cool ways to commit suicide. The guy going of the diving board was cool but the expression on his face was priceless.

To hell with having to listen to boring, repetetive lectures.

I have to go with what Miniman siad. That one was priceless.

Great job with your amazing artwork and total mathpwn skills.

All of them, ****ing awesome.

Also I would buy that T-shirt, or since you have 12, you could make a calendar or something.
