STILL TILTING


« on: February 06, 2009, 07:42:48 am »

Only the Irish…

On Visual Mathematics:

Paddy went into the fish market to apply for a job.
The boss thought to himself - I'm not hiring that lazy Cajun, so he decided to set a test for Paddy hoping he wouldn't be able to answer the questions and he'd be able to refuse him the job without getting into an argument.

The first question was - "Without using numbers, represent the number 9."
Paddy says, "Dat's easy" and proceeds to draw three trees.
The boss says, "What in the world is that?"
Paddy says, "Tree 'n tree 'n tree makes nine."
"Fair enough" says the boss. "

The second questions, same rules, but represent 99".
Paddy stares into space for a while, then makes a smudge on each tree.
"Der ya go sir," he says.
The boss scratches his head and asks, "How on earth do you get that to represent 99?"
Paddy answers, "Each tree is dirty now, so it's dirty tree 'n dirty tree 'n dirty tree - dat 99."
The boss is getting worried he's going to have to hire Paddy so he says,

"All right, question number 3. Same rules again, but this time represent the number 100."
Paddy stares into space again, then he shouts, "I got it!"
He makes a little mark at the base of each tree and says, "Der ya go sir - 100."
The boss looks at Paddy's attempt and thinks, "Ha! got him this time."
He then tells Paddy, "Go on, Paddy, you must be crazy if you think that represents a 100."
Paddy leans forward and points to the little marks at the tree bases and says,

"A little dog comes along and craps by each tree, so now ya got –

dirty tree an' a turd,
and dirty tree an' a turd,
and dirty tree an' a turd,
which makes 100 init."

When do I start my job boss?!"

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body.

But rather, to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming...

WOW, What a Ride!"

Please note: IMHO and e&oe apply to all my posts.
