Which Sci-Fi Crew would you best fit in?

A fun quiz, and I’m gratified to fit in with the crew of what used to be my favorite show. URL to get your own quiz results at the bottom of the post. Thanks to ebenstone for pointing me to it.

You scored as Babylon 5 (Babylon 5), The universe is erupting into war and your government picks the wrong side. How much worse could things get? It doesn’t matter, because no matter what you have your friends and you’ll do the right thing. In the end that will be all that matters. Now if only the Psi Cops would leave you alone.

More fun with numbers

I lifted this from a website I stumbled upon. Made me laugh:

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 is

8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%

and

K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E is

11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%

But,

A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E is

1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%

And,

B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T is

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 is

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.

Fun with numbers

I’m a writer. This means I mostly use the right side of my brain, and numbers have never been of the slightest interest with me. In fact, I pretty much hate them, from one to a googleplex and beyond.

Some people, however, love them. They love them enough to find what’s unique about them such as this:

Consider an n-digit number k. Square it and add the right n digits to the left n or n-1 digits. If the resultant sum is k, then k is called a Kaprekar number.

Kaprekar? Sounds like a name I’d use for a planet. Hey, I might even use it, even if I don’t understand what the definition means.

However, if you are someone who likes numbers, you might want to check out What’s Special About This Number?
