A mathematical equation for happiness
This is so beyond my nerdiness, but it’s nice to know there is a mathematical equation for happiness.
Whatevs, I’ll just stick to beer.
The World Cup may be over but the dust hasn’t settled and I’m still digesting it. I recently saw a blog post where this dude ranks all 171 world cup goals from best to worst. These types of rankings are pretty subjective but the top 10 are fairly accurate. I used his post grab my three personal favorites and post them below:
1. James Rodriguez, Colombia vs. Uruguay
2. Robin Van Persie, The Netherlands vs. Spain
3. Mario Gotze, Germany vs. Argentina
Personally, I like goals where the goal-keeper has no reaction to the strike. Check out the goalkeeper from goal #2. He just stands there and watches in agony as the ball goes in. I love those goals. Rodriguez’s goal was simply spectacular. That’s why it’s my favorite.
I love this clever pic posted by the US Soccer Federation on Twitter earlier today. I really hope Americans can get as much into soccer as the rest of the world. Other countries all but shut down during their teams’ games.
Tomorrow’s U. S. game against Germany is more important than Oprah, the Kardashians, tennis, or whatever else may be on tv. So, please gringo, tune in and cheer your team on!
Health-savvy smarty pants at Cornell University say we weigh the least on Fridays. This is yet another reason to look forward to Fridays.
BTW, this is a true story. I weighed myself today and I weighed about one and a half pounds less than I did last Wednesday, the last time I weighed myself.
