Geek Logik: 50 Foolproof Equations for Everyday Life
Here for the geek in all of us are fifty foolproof equations that take the guesswork out of lifeâ€”and the funniest twist on an idea since Richard Smithâ€™s The Dieterâ€™s Guide to Weight Loss During Sex. Call it the algebra oracle: By plugging in the right variables, GEEK LOGIK answers lifeâ€™s most persistent questions. It covers Dating and Romance, Career and Finance, and everyday decisions like Should I get a tattoo? Can I still wear tight jeans? Is it time to see a therapist? How many beers should I have at the company picnic?
How does it work? Take a simple issue that comes up once or twice a week: Should I call in sick? Fill in the variables honestly, such as D for doctorâ€™s note (enter 1 for â€œno,â€ 10 for â€œyes,â€ and 5 for â€œyes, but itâ€™s a forgeryâ€), R for importance of job (1-10, with 10 being â€œpersonally responsible for Earthâ€™s orbit around Sunâ€), Fj for how much fun you have at work (1-10, with 10 being â€œpersonal trainer for underwear modelsâ€), N for how much you need the money (1-10, with 10 being â€œI owe the mobâ€), then do the math, and voilÃ â€”if the product, Hooky, is greater than 1, enjoy your very own Ferris Buellerâ€™s Day Off.
Includes a pocket calculator so that prospective geeks can immediately solve the equation on the back cover: Should I buy this book?
