I don’t know why. I just wanted to close the month this way.
Next up, the Contents entry that nearly drove me mad.
Mathematicians have finally laid to rest the legendary mystery surrounding an elusive group of numerical expressions known as the “mock theta functions.” Number theorists have struggled to understand the functions ever since the great Indian mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan first alluded to them in a letter written on his deathbed, in 1920.

WN: So you really think this form of advertisement will change the way products are marketed?
John K.: Advertising now is so bloated. Have you seen some of the ads out there? They’re shitty.
WN: So the online medium is a place you’re going to be working in, mostly?
John K.: Online is a much better place for my brand of humor. Working for the studios is so bureaucratic. It’s awful. You can’t get anything done. Look what happened with Ren and Stimpy.
I clicked on the two ads linked in the article. They were funny.

“I personally find the word ‘alien’ offensive when applied to individuals, especially to children,” said Sen. Frederica Wilson, D-Miami. “An alien to me is someone from out of space.”
Your goddam twisted sensitivity is from outer fucking space!

Please exercise the admonition in Matthew 18:9: If thine eye offends thee, pluck it out.
People have a harder time coming up with alternative solutions to a problem when they are part of a group, new research suggests.
Scientists exposed study participants to one brand of soft drink then asked them to think of alternative brands. Alone, they came up with significantly more products than when they were grouped with two others.
Krishnan said individuals, whether students, executives or football fans, should take time to consider the facts on their own before coming to a consensus.
Yeah, try that shit in a corporate setting: “Let me think about it.” That’s poison to a Suit. In their dark, reptilian mind, they immediately dimly perceive you as “difficult.” As “not a team player.” As a “maverick.” A (thank god for it!) “loner.”
In plain words, you’re not some pussy who can be pushed down.
And people wonder why there are office shootings?
I wonder why they don’t happen every day.
