Finals are coming up all of next week, and I need to do a lot of studying and hustle on finishing projects!! Anyway, I thought it wouldn't hurt to tell you all how my Thanksgiving break was even though I am really late on that report. Also, there's a math problem that I was e-mailed to, and I must say it's really awesome. =D I'm serious!
BREAK THANKSGIVING REPORT
My uncle took me home for Thanksgiving since he's only four hours away from the college and stayed with us for the meal. It was a good meal, and I was glad to be eating real food again. =D This was actually the first time I've been home since the summer. The reason being is that I was asked from a friend if I'd like to stay with him over the fall break which I had no problem with. However, I could have gone home during that time.
When Black Friday came, we stopped by at a local Circuit City for its store closing sales, and I bought Okami for the Wii. The original price was, of course, $40, and they were having a deal that all there games would be 20% off ( $39.99 = $31.99). Then, I go up to the cashier to pay for the game, and I was surprised by how much I really had to pay for it. $21.84!! Seriously, I was ready to pay for it at $32 plus tax, and I told the guy about it. "Well, we usually get glitches like this," he told me and put his index finger up to his lips. I just smiled and left feeling happy for having to pay that much. =D If anyone ever plans on playing the game for either the PS2 or Wii, you're all in for a real treat. I had played about three hours into it, and I loved what I saw and played. =D Speaking of games, I did borrow the SNES copy of Chrono Trigger during the break. I didn't get to play much of it, but I was able to meet with Magus for the first time. Now my characters are in the past and are about to enter a lair (forgot the name).
On the Saturday before I went back home, my uncle took my sister and I to see the new James Bond movie, Quantum of Solace. We were looking forward to watching it despite some of the negative press it received. However, the movie projector quit on us 20 minutes into the movie. It was rather disappointing, but we were fortunate to get a refund.
All right, everybody. Here's the math problem you've been waiting for. Once you figure this out, I highly recommend that you don't share the answer on this blog. Trust me.
Here is a math trick so unbelievable that it will stump you.
Personally I would like to know who came up with this and why that person is not running the country.
Grab a calculator. (you won't be able to do this one in your Head)
1. Key in the first three digits of your phone number (NOT the Area code..)
2. Multiply by 80
3. Add 1
4. Multiply by 250
5.. Add to this the last 4 digits of your phone number
6. Add to this the last 4 digits of your phone number again.
7. Subtract 250
8. Divide number by 2
Do you recognize the answer ??
Well, that'll be all for now. Wish me luck on the finals! =D
Until next time, Giant Bombers! 8-)
