A Math Limerick

Posted in Humor on July 28th, 2015

Most people think that math and poetry are polar opposites. This, however, is not true. Take, for instance, this mathematical limerick:

\frac{12+144+20+3\sqrt{4}}{7}+(5*11)=9^{2}+0

What? This doesn’t seem to be a limerick to you? Let’s translate the formula into prose…

A dozen, a gross, and a score,
plus three times the square root of four,
divided by seven,
plus five times eleven,
is nine squared and not a bit more.

See? Math and poetry can be one and the same. It’s just take a little work and some understanding 😛

Close Them Down!

Posted in Humor, Society on July 21st, 2015

In these times, when certain sorts are so fixated on removing what they see as racism, it’s time – past time! – to finally close down obviously racist establishments. They’re offensive!

White Castle Logo
Close Them Down! They’re Cracka Racists!

At the top of that list should be White Castle. Really! C’mon! White Castle. It’s right there in the name. It’s White; that’s racist. It’s a castle; that’s White privilege right there as there’s a long history of Blacks not having castles. And what is the centerpiece of White Castle’s menu? The hamburger – a food named after a German city, highlighting the White European conquest of America. That’s racist! Worse, hamburgers are fast food and Blacks are overrepresented in the fast food industry, meaning the likelihood of Blacks making and serving food to Whites and that’s got to be racist too.

Really! In a time like now when there are concerted efforts to eradicate the Confederate flag, desecrate Confederate graves, and tear down Confederat monuments, how can we let White Castle stay in business?

Famous Last Words

Posted in Humor, Politics on July 15th, 2015

Pulitzer Prize winning editorial cartoonist Michael Ramirez has aptly summed up the general public’s views of Obama’s nuclear weapons deal with Iran in one image and ten words.

Obama and his Iran Nukes Deal
Famous Last Words

The problem with the general public’s views of Obama’s nuclear weapons deal with Iran is it is predicated upon unproven postulates and doesn’t take into account Obama’s own personal views.

Firstly, any issue with the wisdom of Obama’s agreement with Iran over that nation’s ongoing attempt to develop nuclear weapons should never be predicated upon the hypothesis that the boy was trying to prevent such. That would be making an assumption of facts not in evidence.

Secondly, Obama has no issue extending trust to a people who call America “The Great Satan” because he, himself likely has no problems dealing with the Devil to get his way and, therefor, sees a likelihood that others will do the same.
