And On The Lighter Side…

The most important and incomprehensible story in today’s news is the release of the Republicans’ plans to kinda sorta replace Obamacare with something which seems just about as complicated and convoluted, but will save billions in tax dollars for the evil rich by declaring “mass graves for the poor” to be a legitimate medical option.

At least, that’s how the ever-rabid mainstream media is reporting it. Seriously, the Holocaust got more favorable press coverage. We’re guessing the actual plan is significantly less draconian than it’s being portrayed and, at least possibly, better than the current system which is crumbling before our eyes (as it was meant to do by the Democrats).

With nothing else to say on the topic just yet, we’ve decided to look at “the lighter side” of the news – by which we mean the stories which we’d like to take a lighter to, if not an actual flamethrower. Starting with…

Contrary to a number of bone-headed tweets, Donald Trump has now admitted that he has no secret tapes of his conversations with fired FBI Director James Comey.  Despite this, we don’t believe Trump was lying. We believe, as we always have, that the guy is at least sporadically nuts.

We also wonder, under the GOP health care plan, what a double thumbectomy would cost – because we know a certain Twitter addict who could really, really use one.

And speaking of Oval Office residents, we found this story interesting…

LA would be renaming a 3 mile stretch of Rodeo Road, which makes us hope passionately that the rodeo clown who infamously wore an Obama mask while dodging bulls will do the ribbon-cutting.

By the way, let us be quick to distance ourselves from the racially insensitive joke told above by our ersatz Nick and Nora Charles. We can only guess that they were under the evil influence of coffee at the time…

According to a scientific study which was, in a glaring bit of oversight, not funded by our tax dollars, researchers determined that psychopaths are more likely to prefer their coffee black.

Which is really only logical; if you dawdle around in Starbucks waiting endlessly for your barista to make a Veni-Vini-Vici-sized half-foam hazelnut creme arabica cappuccino with sprinkles and a dusting (“Only a dusting!”) of nutmeg, it gives the cops way too much time to catch up with you.

Which isn’t why we prefer our coffee black. We just like something that matches our mood in the morning.

Deep Sea Jiving

As you’ve already surmised, we’re taking a “Bah, humbug!” approach to the day’s news. Seriously, the guy in the diving helmet might have the right idea when it comes to blocking out the media crapfest. [snip]

Math, logic and the real world

This comes from 2 math teachers with a combined total of 70 yrs. experience. It has an indisputable mathematical logic. It also made me Laugh Out Loud.

This is a strictly ….. 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 looks like this. 8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%
And K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E also appears as 11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%

But, A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E makes it entrée thus. 1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%

However, B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T shows up as 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 Hard work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there. It’s the Bullshit and Ass Kissing that will put you over the top.

Now you know why Politicians are where they are!
