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

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.

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.
