    Why Math is Important

    I was riding to work yesterday when I observed a female driver cut right in front of a pickup truck, causing him to have to drive on the shoulder to avoid hitting her. This evidently angered the driver enough that he hung his arm out his window and “flipped” her off. “Man, that guy is stupid,” I thought to myself. I ALWAYS smile nicely and wave in a sheepish manner whenever a female does anything to me in traffic, and here’s why.

    I drive 48 miles each way every day to work, that’s 96 miles each day. Of these, 16 miles each way is bumper-to-bumper. Most of the bumper-to-bumper is on an 8 lane highway. There are 7 cars every 40 feet for 32 miles. That works out to be 982 cars every mile, or 31,424 cars. Even though the rest of the 32 miles is not bumper-to-bumper, I figure I pass at least another 4,000 cars. That brings the number to something like 36,000 cars I pass every day.

    Statistically, half of these are driven by a female, that’s 18,000. In any given group of females 1 in 28 has PMS, that’s 642. According to Cosmopolitan, 70% describe their love life as dissatisfying or unrewarding, that’s 449. According to the National Institute of Health, 22% of all females have seriously considered suicide or homicide, that’s 98. And 34% describe men as their biggest problem, that’s 33. According to the National Rifle Association 5% of all females carry weapons and this number is increasing.

    That means that EVERY SINGLE DAY, I drive past at least one female that has a lousy love life, thinks men are her biggest problem, has seriously considered suicide or homicide, has PMS and is armed.

    Flip one off?...

    I think not…

    I know we have some good cooks here. Do any of you guys steam your food? I just have one of those little metal things that you put in the bottom of the pan. Thinking about getting one of those bamboo types.

    I steam veggies sometimes... but was wondering about steaming fish... Do any of you steam fish?

    EDIT: I guess I cook fish just like the veggies... Season the fillets first and then arrange them on the insert and cook. :icon_shrug:

    Fawk, I'm having a ****** day! My son and dil are into me for tens of thousands of dollars... They just asked for more money (for something they don't need) and I almost had to be rude about telling them NO. I need my money and if they'd ever pay me back like they say they are going to... it would be a different story.

    I do feel for them in alot of ways...BUT...they constantly try to live above their means. Sad part is they were on the road to getting ahead of the game when she got pregnant with "fluke" triplets.

    Now they will prolly qualify for Medicaid, Food Stamps and Housing based on his income and 4 children (both parents in their early 20s)

    This is all just too overwhelming sometimes. :(

    Vent over... I just feel like crying (am crying) today because I know Alina is going to be kept away for a while.

    They honestly will keep her away because you won't loan them more money? OMG!! That is incredible ...

    I can't even pretend to know how you feel .. my daughters so far have not borrowed from me. They know I couldn't give it to them with me having three young ones at home and my house!

    [Well the one did borrow $1,500 for a car and was pizzed when I took it back (I am on her account) after she got her tax refund .. BUT OH WELL .. I am spending more than that on her for the babies and new house.]

    Gee Carrie .. I feel for you .. you need to let them know they can't use that child to "punish" you.

    Thanks, DIL did apologize a while ago and admitted that she's just stressed out and scared... I'm continuing to try and reassure them... that I'll be there to help out with what their family needs but not huge cars that they will never be able to make the payments on... (poor grammar... don't feel like fixing it..:lol:)

    I have to laugh about the "Shrek" movie. Fiona has "triplets." Alina thinks that is so funny that there are three babies... She's not going to think it's so funny later this year when her THREE siblings are grabbing all of her attention. :lol::lol::lol:
