Ma and Pa Kettle Explain the Reformation


This clip was passed along to me by a co-worker. It’s a gag on the current bailout debacle, which is pretty darn funny for those of us dolts who, along with the pundits and lawmakers, cannot make heads nor tails of the evening news.

But, being the contrarian that I am, my mind immediately went to two other places these days: first, late nights with my fifth grader who has begun to ease out of the standard first-few-weeks-of-previous-year review (balanced calendars NOW!); second, how it feels to try and explain confessional Reformed truths. But no matter how you look at it, this is just plain hysterical for anybody who gets that odd, creeping feeling he is trying to describe a color.

    That’s awesome! After watching that video, I took a shower (where I always do my best thinking), and figured out that this trick works for other odd multiples of 5 (15/5=12, 35/5=16, 45/5=18), as well as some other cases (36/6=15, 48/8=15, 24/4=15). Those last two illustrate the truth that reduced fractions express the same quotient. In a slight variation, it also works for 28/4=25. I think that’s a complete set. Any others out there?

    I love watching spatial-mathematical geeks think. But I can do without the image of one showering.
