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?
