FW: Math Trick

This math exercise will only take you about ten seconds. Amazingly, it really works and will reveal your all-time favorite movie.

I'm pretty good at math, so I did it in my head, then on paper, and finally on a calculator just to confirm my numerical capabilities. Each time I got the same answer, and sure enough it IS my very favorite movie.

DO NOT cheat. DO YOUR math, THEN compare the results to the list of movies at the bottom. You will be AMAZED at how scary true and accurate this test is.

1. Pick a number from 1-9.

2. Multiply that number by 3

3. Add 3

4. Multiply by 3 again

5. Your total will be a two digit number. Add the first and second digits together to find your favorite movie (of all time) in the list of 17 movies below:

Movie List:

1. Gone With the Wind

2. E.T

3. Blazing Saddles

4. Star Wars

5. Forrest Gump

6. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

7. Jaws

Shares of the prison-for-profit company Corrections Corporation of America CXW, have soared 19.7% after the election.

I'm sure it's just a coincidence.

Pharma, defense, and bank stocks have all soared, too, since no one will be reigning in defense spending, no one will be attempting to control drug prices and no one will be regulating Wall Street.

On the plus side, gun stocks are down, since Hillary will not be going door to door to take our Glocks.

I saw a quote the other day from someone who was insisting that this week's election was not a referendum on race:

"This was about getting rid of the Washington establishment."

Pretty amusing, since the only part of the "Washington establishment" that got replaced was the President, who was Constitutionally required to leave office.

I'll quote HL Mencken's definition of "democracy" here:

"Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard."

Bring it on.

Ha, I never even thought about the gun companies. They must be secretly PISSED that Trump won. No more boogieman to scare up sales.

Fox News will likely see their ratings take a dive also when Trump takes office. People are less likely to tune in for the two minute hate when their guy is in office. But maybe Fox can take advantage of Republican infighting: can anyone say tariffs? Somehow though I think Trump will drop that idea like a hot potato.

Not gonna lie, this was a neat trick. Had it really shown my favorite movie, Toy Story would be on there.

I'd like to see Trump's entire platform passed into law as soon as possible, including the 35% tariffs.

The people who voted for this clown deserve to get what they voted for.

They have no idea.

The father of a friend of mine is 80 and has leukemia. He voted for Trump.

I'm curious to see how he plans on paying for his chemo without the help of that Medicare he voted to eliminate.

I'd like to see everything that Trump Promised voted into law within his first 100 days. That'll include a giant honking tax cut for the .0001% - whom Trump's disaffected voters were allegedly so upset with - while the middle classes will be landed with nice tax INCREASE.

It'll also mean more Wars, less for Medicare & Social Security, and those tariffs are gonna make today's WalMart prices rise, rise, rise.

Be careful what you wish/vote for....

Of course, almost as soon as Trump was declared the winner, he began backtracking and walking back the majority of his promises.


Oh, I guess having a Big Daddy Authoritarian who takes away a woman's right to choose will be really worth it. Good on ya.
