We know that Power is Work divided by Time:

P = W/T

And we know that Knowledge equals Power, and Time equals Money:

K = P , T = $

So, Knowledge equals Work divided by Money:

K = W/$

And Money equals Work divided by Knowledge:

$ = W/K

So, as Knowledge approaches zero, Money approaches infinity:

K → 0 , $ → ∞.

Thus proving, that one with infinitesimally small amounts of grey matter has way too much cash.

Yeah, but if you know absolutely nothing,,,, no matter how hard you work you ain't gettin' paid.

ETA: ,,,but then you wouldn't know it so it really would not matter.

But then as we consider how the less money you get, the more knowledge you have. So our labors for Burning Man that we LOSE money gain us large amounts of knowledge! YAY!

or is that amount to a negative number which indicates a loss of knowledge,,,, hmmmm

So;
if we assume that Y is the fun quotient, of burning man
we can calculate said values using the simple factors listed, as a sum total, no?
to wit:

F as the fun factor, U would be underlying anxiety, C for cosmic influences, K denoting in king harvey is on site, YO being used to denote youthful overindulgence, R for radical inclusion, D obviously for debauchery, A standing for agitation.

expressed in simple formula:
F+U+C+K+YO+U+R+D+A=Y

FUCK YOUR MATH!!!! SCIENCE TOO!!! ARE THERE NO OTHER LITERATURE NERDS IN THIS PLACE?!?! AM I COMPLETELY FUCKING ALONE HERE?????

:shock: Wow. Sorry. :oops:

"In calling up images of the past, I find the plains of Patagonia frequently cross before my eyes; yet these plains are pronounced by all wretched and useless. They can be described only by negative characters; without waster, without trees, without mountains, they support merely a few dwarf plants. Why then, and the case is not peculiar to myself, have these arid wastes taken so firm a hold in my memory? Why have not the still more level, the greener and more fertile Pampas, which are serviceable to mankind, produced an equal impression? I can scarcely analyze these feelings: but it must be partly owing to the free scope given to the imagination. The plains of Patagonia are boundless, for they are scarcely passable, and hence unknown: they bear the stamp of having lasted, as they are now, for ages, and there appears no limit to their duration through future time. If, as the ancients supposed, the flat earth was surrounded by an impassable breadth of water, or deserts heated to intolerable excess, who would not look at these last boundries to man's knowledge with deep but ill-defined sensations?" ~Charles Darwin Voyage of H.M.S. Beagle

You are never alone Red.
for example:
'TYPEWRITER' is the longest word that can be made using the letters only on one row of the keyboard.
'STEWARDESSES' is the longest word typed with only the left hand.
'LOLLIPOP' is the longest word typed with only right hand.
And...
No word in the English language rhymes with 'MONTH', 'ORANGE', 'SILVER', or 'PURPLE'.

Or for those who have trouble reading the poem:

A Dozen, a Gross and a Score,
plus three times the square root of four,
divided by seven, plus five times eleven,
equals nine squared and not a bit more.

I like how you say that, then quote Darwin of all people. :lol:



"Without books the development of civilization would have been impossible. They are the engines of change, windows on the world, ''Lighthouses'' as the poet said ''erected in the sea of time.'' They are companions, teachers, magicians, bankers of the treasures of the mind, Books are humanity in print." - Arthur Schopenhauer
