Birthdays.

The idea behind this thread is to test the premise that if you have 27 (may be 26 or 28...it's not hard to calculate but my statistical formulas are forgotten... Age..Mine 2/23/45. Peter Fonda, too but younger)......that there is a 50/50 chance of two people will have the same month and day. Someone...

Boston in the early 70's

I remember (sort of...or is it a dream). Everyone in
their 20's and 30's was out clubing every night of the
week. We split our time between live music rock and
roll clubs, and discos. Quaaludes were the party fuel.
Now, I guess it's Extacy. Oh, the younger generation - amateurs!

Great line from the FSM gospel book

I'm half way through the book (buy it) and this was
a noted anonymous quote:

The definition of Religious Wars:

"Killing other people over who has the
best invisible friend."

That puts a lot of current events into perspective.

Anyone with photos of FSM or pirates in rocks, toast,
split pea soup, etc.?

Woburn is where I work. I live in beautiful Billerica. I saw mention on your site of the Ship Restaurant.

If you haven't read The Power of Myth (also on DVD from the PBS TV show), it's an excellent read as a transcript, but the DVD has visuals.

Still....30 hits of the = sign gets you to 10.7. No one questions this.
They will pay up.

Doesn't really make a difference who is right. Pirates need their
free shots of rum.

If that isn't an image of FSM, I don't know what is. I'm still sorting
through slices of burnt toast for images to sell on Ebay.

Still....the = sign hit 30 times gets to my answer. 10.7 was the answer when I first read about it. The fable version has to do with a pauper that helps a king. The king offers some gold. The pauper asks for a measure of salt doubled for each square on a chess board. The king agrees (not thinking) a...

TV's where you had to get up and change the channel. The earlier ones without UHF - Only 2 to 12 or was it 13? Polaroid pictures...Only in black and white. Slightly off topic. Older buildings lack a 13th floor. I've seen floor 13 in the newer ones. Have you seen 13 missing from elevators in new buil...

Most calculators will work 2x.01 with = hit 30 times.
.01 x 2 won't do it.

Nope. I hand you a penny today and say sleep on it overnight. The first day it doubles to 2 cents. You need one more calculation at the end. You have the double to 2 cents as the first day. Try it on the calculator - the first step (2 x .01 =....shows 2 cents. It's the first time = is hit. 29 more t...

Add to "have you ever seen.....? Past year 1950.

A slide rule. Do you know how to use it? The old Friden calculators with more than a 10 x 10 grid of buttons. If you divided by 0, and left the room, it would fry itself. Programming in Fortran with punch cards. What would the clue be if you had a programming error? (the dreadful pause by the reader...

Day one is 2 cents Day two is 4 cents Day 30 is $10.7 million. This is how I read it, and doing it out on the calculator as described, you reach 10.7. In any case, no one is going to guess within 50% of the answer unless they say "Hmmmm. That's 1 to the 30th power. Let me get out the ol' slide ...

The first day is the magic day that it doubles to 2 cents. $10.7 million is the correct answer. The question is "How much is a penny doubled every day for 30 days". First doubling day is the next day after sleeping with it grasped in your hand. Using a simple calculator 2 x .01 with the = ...
