Life, the universe, and math.

Life:  Is going pretty well minus the still present lack of a job.  This is something I’m striving to correct however and until that point, there are plenty of other things that deserve my attention; most importantly, my writing!  However, it is not all writing, there other deserving candidates as well.  Global politics, mathematics, friends, family, soccer and reading are important as well.  Which brings me to..

The Universe: Is IMO not doing so well.  In case you haven’t noticed, we’re talking about another Korean war.  That sounds exactly like an excuse for a war between the U.S. and China to me.  Have we all read 1984 by Orwell?  Big Brother is on his way, one war at a time.

Math: .9 repeating = 1  This is a fact.   Need proof?

.9999…=x

*10

9.9999…=10x

-.999…=x

9=9x

x=1

Odd, how can x equal both .999… and 1?  Unless of course they are equal!

Not convinced?  Allow me to present proof two.

1/3 = .333… repeating

2/3=.666… repeating

3/3 then must equal the sum of .333… and .666…  which.. wait for it! IS .999…

But wait?!  3/3 is a whole!  It equals 1!

Therefore, .999… must equal 1!

How about them apples?
