SQUARES: How Many Squares are there?
96% Failed this test. Can you answer it? How many squares are there???
Nine inside the one larger, surrounding figure. If "Square = a two-dimensional shape of four, equilateral, connected sides." If not, then the sky's the limit...
Oh, well, then, if we're supposed to take the question literally, in fact there are none in the match-stick image, because none of the match-stick corners are joined.
But if we're supposed to count "square-suggestive" absences, there are six more, composed where four matchsticks don't touch.
Or, only one, if you count the square which contains the whole image, which is the only one all of whose sides are connected, in the original puzzle on Fbook.But you COULD go "super-literal," and only count the word "squares," in which case there'd be three.
Depends on what the meaning of is is, as Prez. Clenis so adroitly testified during his impeachment hearings.
Mainly, but usually only from March through May.
But un-fucking likely.
Woody strongly agrees: Yes. You certainly COULD do. From a technological POV, yep. Indubitably!
If the infrastructure were there to support it...Or if it were being built even as we speak. Or if there were investments in place to propel the changes.
Ah, if only...But it's not, and there's not, and there's not..
And the folks who own the EXISTING shit are NOT just gonna walk away from it, and leave all those dollars and tax breaks on the table.
Talk to me about getting around THAT hurdle. THAT's the killer "app."
A Pay Cut?
Prez. LowBar announce he'd be returning FIVE percent of his salary.
I'll be accused (though not for the first time) of being ungenerous, if I noted, for example, thatr it's not like he actually NEEDS the money.
His net worth is greater than $10 MILLION. So he's not exactly imposing a hardship on Michelle and the girls. They ALL got nice, new Easter outfits, I'm sure. His salary is $400K/yr; he also gets a $50k/yr "expense account," $100k/yr (non-taxable) travel allowance, and $19k/yr for "entertainment." He's returning FIVE percent of the first $400k? That's $20 Thousand.
He COULD refuse his WHOLE presidential salary, and not feel particularly pinched, given 10 MILLIONS in the bank.
Some might object, as one correspondent did, that "For the job he does, 400,000 isn't that much. And he is worth 10 million because of his book sales. Back in 2004 they didn't make all that much. The head CEO of Walmart makes 16,000 an hour and they pay their workers below poverty wages. But people are still shopping at Walmart. This is our President. While I don't agree with all of his policies, he has a hell of a job and I don't see his salary as being that much. Plus he has had more death threats than any President in our history."
I say: So? So fucking WHAT?
He WANTED the fucking job. If he DIDN'T know how hard it was gonna be, how did he convince ANYBODY he was smart enough for it?
He's wealthy enough to make a larger, grander gesture. This one causes him no discomfort, unlike the changes he's gonna shove up OUR asses.
