Unless you live in China you will almost certainly have been subjected to one or more simpering viral emails usually attributing a set of positive or magical characteristics to the christian god. Instead of just being irritated by them I though it might be constructive to rearrange them and send them back into the system.

I received one about math magic as a New Year's greeting from a friend. It was presented in Power Point. I do not have Power Point installed on my system so I took screen copies of the images.

Take a look at them and see what you can come up with in the way of anti-viral medication.

My answer was:

An alternative solution in real mathematics is:

101 percent = the love of god = an imaginary concept.


Unfortunately "an imaginary concept" adds up to 106 in the author's nominal numeric system.

So, does this mean that if you just don't give a shit, and so you give 0%, then the devil's hatred made you do it? I now have an excuse to not do any cleaning: The devil's hatred is keeping me from working too hard!

The arithmetic symmetry is beautiful. They may have been lifted from this (.pdf) paper that contains many other cool examples.

The percentage game is just pretty lame.

I can't believe people waste their time emailing that stuff out. I mean, the numbers thing is neat, but do they really think that that is going to insprie anyone to accept the love of god?

Oy. If they spent half as much time doing practical things as they do making up that insipid nonsense just imagine what could be accomplished.

I feel a little queezy after reading that too! There's something about simpering, sugary sweet stupidity that makes me want to throw up.

The only thing that went anywhere near "over the top" was the content of my stomach.

I'm barely scraping by in rememdial math here, but isn't there a reason why the numbers do that? Is this why we count in tens? Isn't it a huuuuuuuuuuge leap to say that symmetry is proof of God? And wouldn't that just mean that Al Jaffee is God?

O.M.G. I can't even laugh.
