First Home Game

First home game tonight. Very close, but we won!… Everyone really digging the school’s new rock band. Well, everyone except for the opposing team. Someone should really tell Mr. Bell that it’s not good sportsmanship for the kids to scream and play while shooting free throws.

The Roads Of Instruction

When asked to measure my level of instruction on the scale of a road that learners travel, I was given the options of a dirt road, a paved road, a freeway, and the yellow brick road. I responded with none of the above. When asked why, I replied, “My level of instruction is like a spaceship. As long as I have enough fuel, the sky is the limit.”

50 - 2 = ?

Have you ever heard the riddle: “How many times can you subtract the number two from the number fifty?” Many will claim that the correct answer is once, being that after one simply subtracts two from fifty, one is no longer left with fifty to subtract from. This is correct if you assume the number fifty to be the subject of the question. However, what if we no longer assumed that fifty is the subject of the question? I would like to propose two alternatives whose answers are ‘infinite’. As the first answer, these answers will rely solely upon what is being considered the subject of the question.

If the subject of the question is the number two, then the answer would be infinite. Fifty may be my starting point, but I may travel infinitely in either direction. For instance, if one were to take fifty paces forward and then two paces back every minute, s/he would arrive at her/his initial location twenty-five minutes later. However, if s/he decided to continue taking two paces back, s/he would travel the distance of the planet; thus, returning to her/his fifty pace marker for the second time.

If the subject of the question is neither two nor fifty, but rather the execution of subtracting two from fifty, then one may also perform this act an infinite number of times or at least as many times as one may choose. For example, one may subtract two from fifty today, then two from fifty tomorrow, and two from fifty the next day, and two from fifty the day after, and two from fifty until the end of all days.

Well, that is my response anyways. At least I didn’t sit down with a pen and paper subtracting two repeatedly until I finally arrived at zero.

Trusting Actors Over Musicians

One thing I could never really understand is how the general public can be so willing to trust what an actor has to say regarding politics, society, and/or world issues. An actor entertains by way of lying. A musician entertains by way of telling the truth. There used to be a time when musicians were looked to for such guidance. Yet, it seems as though we are indebted to this change, as we continue to devolve into an increasingly more visual culture.

First off, I’m all for the idea of raising money to help save lives, but the first rule of fundraising is “Don’t spend money!” When the amount of money invested in advertising dwarfs the amount of profit you are bringing in, you know your campaign is failing.

Secondly, out of all of the corporations and financial institutions in the world, why choose Bank Of America? Isn’t U2 from Ireland?
