Shower Thought #1

I find it interesting how someone could be in and out of prison their whole life and their families will still say things like, “I know he is a good person.”

Meanwhile, I get a B+ on my test and my family berates me for being a “shame to the family” and how I’m a “failure of a son”.

The True Meaning of 42

In The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, the supercomputer Deep Thought is built by a race of hyper-intelligent alien beings to determine the answer to “The Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything.”

Deep Thought determines that the answer is somewhat anticlimactically, “42.”

It sounds like a joke, but is there more to this answer?

Douglas Adams was an unabashed computer nerd and knew a heck of a lot of programming language and coding. In programming, an asterisk is commonly used to translate as “whatever you want it to be”.

In ASCII language, the most basic computer software, “42” is the designation for an asterisk. A computer, Deep Thought, was asked what the true meaning of life was. It answered as a computer would. 42 = “anything you want it to be.”

  • They get bored easily.
  • They love reading, not necessarily books though.
  • They understand easily and quickly.
  • Excellent problem-solving skills.
  • Above average deduction skills.
  • Enjoy solitude.

Note: I am the exact opposite so I probably dumb AF.

Who Wrote Their Phd Thesis in the Shortest Amount of Time?

George Bernard DantzigGeorge Bernard Dantzig arrived late to class, found some problems on the board and copied them down assuming they were homework.

He took them home, worked them out. A couple of days later, he gave his work to his professor while apologizing for taking so long because the questions were a bit harder than usual.

What he didn’t know was that those questions on the board weren’t homework, but some examples of unsolved problems that were being discussed in class.

A year later he asked his professor for help choosing his thesis topic and the professor just told him to put those two problems in a binder and he’ll accept them as his thesis.
