A little wit. A little wisdom. And a little whatever. (March 6, 2017)

A little wit

You gotta do the math (Rated PG-13)…(from Short Funny Stories)
A math professor sent the following fax to his wife:

Dear Wife:

quadraticequations2You must realize that you are 54-years-old, and I have certain needs which you are no longer able to satisfy. I am otherwise happy with you as my wife, and I sincerely hope you will not be hurt or offended to learn that by the time you receive this letter, I will be at the Grand Hotel with my 18-year-old teaching assistant. I’ll be home before midnight. Your Husband

When he arrived at the hotel, there was a faxed letter waiting for him that read as follows:

Dear Husband: You, too, are 54-years-old and by the time you receive this letter, I will be at the Breakwater Hotel with the 18-year-old pool boy. Being the brilliant mathematician that you are, you can easily appreciate the fact that 18 goes into 54 a lot more times than 54 goes into 18.
Don’t wait up.

“There are worse crimes than burning books. One of them is not reading them.” —Ray Bradbury, 1920-2012 (Read more about him.)

rosenbergA little whatever

On March 6, 1951, the trial of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg began. The couple was accused of spying on the United States for the Soviet Union, passing on top-secret information about military technology. The Rosenbergs were convicted after a brief trial and were sentenced to death on April 5, 1951. Over the next two years, they vigorously protested their innocence, and many people believed they were the victims of wrongful conviction. President Eisenhower refused their request for clemency, and on June 19, 1953, both were put to death by electric chair. Neither of the two ever admitted any wrongdoing.
