Spacey Fiction

The_Martian_2014.jpg

My book club finally started reading a new selection, and made my choice of books easier than ever. I asked the librarian for it, and was disappointed to learn that it was The Martian. The only pre-knowledge I had about this story I got from movie promos on TV. Since I don’t like Matt Damon unless he is playing Jason Bourne, the trailers did not impress me. I made a snide comment about the selection and my obligation to read every book the members are reading. She told me to skim it. “No,” I said, “once I start a read I suffer through it no matter how much I hate it.”

At home I put the book on the table, and walked away. Later, I walked by the book and decided to pick it up to read the first page just to get a feel for the story. That was the end of it for me. I never put it down again until bedtime.

The Martiani is the best book I have read in a long time. The premise was totally believable, the character was real, and totally funny. It takes quite a man to be funny when marooned on a planet eleven months from Earth. His attitude was one of survival, and he was expert at solving problems throughout. My background is in engineering and this story is loaded with heaps of technical jargon and science. All of it made sense and based on fact. This character put McGyver to shame.

Now that I love the story so much I will endure the movie to see if Damon did the story justice.

PSA-170830-Mathematical Logic

9fa0eb8c269a52f6d2bdef71e833bfe9.jpg.png
Mathematics:

This comes from 2 math teachers with a combined total of 70 yrs. experience.
It has an indisputable mathematical logic.

This is a strictly …..  a mathematical viewpoint… and it goes like this:

What Makes 100%?
What does it mean to give MORE than 100%?
Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%? We have all been to those meetings where someone wants you to give over 100%.
How about achieving 103%?
What makes up 100% in life?
Here’s a little mathematical formula that might help you answer these questions:
If:
A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z
Is represented as:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.
Then:
H-A-R-D-W-O-R-K
8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 =  98%
And  
K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E  
11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 =  
96%  
But ,
A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E
1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 =  100%
And,
B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T
2+21+12+12+19+8+9+20 =  103%
AND, look how far ass kissing will take you.
A-S-S-K-I-S-S-I-N-G
1+19+19+11+9+19+19+9+14+7  = 118%
So, one can conclude with mathematical certainty, that while Hardwork and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there.  It’s the Bullshit and good old fashion Ass Kissing that will put you over the top.
Now you know why Politicians are where they are!
I’ve never seen a better explanation than this formula. How true it is?

Points of View

Two paintings by the same artist but with different points of view. How strikingly different they are.

The video above was produced in 2010.

Which point of view are you? I am definitely the second.

 

Consequences

donald-trump-joe-arpaio.jpg

Today’ news seems to be blowing liberal heads off about Sheriff Joe Arpaio being pardoned. Where were you libtards when Obama violated every one of the immigration laws to allow an invasion of the USA by anyone professing to want a better life. He wasn’t prosecuted for any of it. In fact you all boldly encouraged him to break the law more often. In the case of Sheriff Joe I can only say one simple thing. How is it racial profiling when the majority of the population is of the same race? In a case like that I’d say he was profiling if he picked on anglo’s only. He didn’t, he picked on people who broke the law. It just so happens that most of the people who broke the law were of another race, and that the population comprises a huge number of hispanics.

It never fails, when the government plays your way it is the hero as it was when Obama presided. Now that there is a Republican in the presidency the game has changed and all you libs cry foul. I will quote your popular law breaking president, “elections have consequences, I won you lost.” Deal with it, or find a better place to live, and don’t let the door hit you in the ass.

President Trump has every right in the book to pardon any one he deems. Trump did not break any laws, he did what he felt ws correct. It is the troublesome USA hating left wing that continues to fight him on everything he does.

This Is Who I Will Stand Next To

There is no argument for me. If asked if I would support Colin Kaepernick, and folks who think and believe like him, or the people who are shown in this video. I’m going American all the way. I want to be with the people who conceived, designed, and constructed this flag pole. They are my people. Those who choose to trash the symbol of our Liberty saying that it represents hypocrisy, racism, and division all have their heads in the wrong place. Maybe there is some racism left in America, but it is a darn sight more free, and less racist than any other country in the world.

When I am free to travel again I will visit this site and salute this magnificent flag.

PSA-170825-Blackboard Philosophy

These daily signs are inspirational. Everyday for over 20 years a sign has been shown. They should compile them all into a book, assuming that someone has recorded them all as they are in chalk.
A  filling station has become quite a landmark in Gauteng, South Africa, with its daily #PetrolPumpWisdom, which are uplifting quotes written on a chalkboard. Some motorists say they deliberately travel this route just to read the quote which brightens their day. Here’s a selection:

The lady behind this wonderful initiative at Hutton Hyde Park is Alison Billett.
She told SAPeople: “We inherited the board from the previous owner, Dick Hutton, when we bought the filling station from him almost 20 years ago.
“We continued the tradition and it has become a landmark – more so now that it’s on social media!
chalkboard-quotes11“Not a day goes by when I don’t get a call or a visit from someone to tell me how much they appreciate the message – it seems that every day there’s

something that just speaks to what is going on in someone’s life and that inspires or motivates them.

chalkboard-quotes9

“Having people come and tell me their stories and how the quote helped them in some small way is what motivates me to keep writing!

“We use a variety of quotations – some are topical, some are funny, some are inspirational, some even reflect what is going on in my life that day

chalkboard-quotes10

“Different things appeal to different people…

chalkboard-quotes15

“The boards were spotted by a motivational speaker from the UK, Geoff Ramm, when he was driving by one day and he was so taken by them he includeda piece about them in his book!

“The boards have appeared many times in newspapers and magazines and been spoken about on radio stations all over the world. 9GAG has re-tweeted them a few times too!”

Bob 95 FM in the USA recently posted Alison’s “Rest in Peace” quote which has now been shared over a quarter of a million times around the world!

Those who would disrespect our flag have never been handed a folded one.

“A veteran is someone who at one point in their life, wrote a blank check made payable to The United States of America for any amount, up to and including their life.”

“The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it.”

The Dangers of Allah

Confused about Islam, Muslims, Taqiyya, Kitman, The Islamic State, and Sharia? I've spent 14 years studying these confused beings.  They are not at all what they want us to believe, especially those who are ruled by al Qaeda , ISIS and the Muslim Brotherhood as well as those who commit overt and covert Jihad while practicing Sharia tortures upon women

“ The limitation of riots, moral questions aside, is that they cannot win and their participants know it. Hence, rioting is not revolutionary but reactionary because it invites defeat. It involves an emotional catharsis, but it must be followed by a sense of futility. ” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
