Using the smbus module, and the help of my dad, I was able to get the acceleration from the module without using an external library. For some reason I wasn't able to find an online refrence for using the Interrupt pins on the ADXL module. So afr I'm getting value but some problem causes it to give me impossible values.
Fun fact: if that right most value was real we would all be flattened against the surface of the Earth.
I need to fix that
