Misery to peak on Monday January 24th, RUN AND HIDE!

Filed under: — Matthew @ 10:10 pm

According to researchers, people will be the most miserable they can be all year on this coming Monday, January 24th. This isn’t an Onion article people, this is science. There’s a formula and everything: “/8W+(D-d) 3/8xTQ MxNA. Where W is weather, D is debt – minus the money (d) due on January’s pay day – and T is the time since Christmas.”

And we all know, if there’s math, it must be true, especially if the formula is more than one line and contains variables. It’s so “confusing” you should just nod your head, and hide under the covers.

Cheerio!

    “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Onion”

    Seriously though, this kind of reminds me of the Carl Sagan (who did he steal this from?) formula to determine the likelihood of life on other planets.

    You’re thinking of the Drake equation:

    N = R* fp ne fl fi fc L

    where,

    N = The number of communicative civilizations
    R* = The rate of formation of suitable stars (stars such as our Sun)
    fp = The fraction of those stars with planets. (Current evidence indicates that planetary systems may be common for stars like the Sun.)
    ne = The number of Earth-like worlds per planetary system
    fl = The fraction of those Earth-like planets where life actually develops
    fi = The fraction of life sites where intelligence develops
    fc = The fraction of communicative planets (those on which electromagnetic communications technology develops)
    L = The “lifetime” of communicating civilizations

    When I plug in , I get that there should be three civilizations living here on earth alone…

    I’m not sure there’s even ONE.

    By the way, I wasn’t miserable today. But I did have a hella case of road rage for an hour or so. Does that count?
