Annoyed By Zero


Welcome to Oscar’s Tavern!   How are you today?  Todays drink special is Smithwicks Ale!  My favorite I may add. And we have Open faced Meatloaf sandwiches all set up for ya!

Ok, are you tired of the Toyota “Saved by Zero ” commercials?  My god it shows every break it seems. Especially during football games and other sports broacasts. And as always those annoying “Viva Viagra” spots. I mute the TV’s when either of these come on. A lot of people are disgusted with continuous ads being slammed at us. Lisa threw a french fry at the widescreen TV behind the bar the other day when the zero commercial came on. That’ll show them!  FRY YOU!!  You had better stop that commercial or I shall shower you with the fickle fry of fate! May the grease of a thousand fries, drip down your leg and cause you to fall and break your a$$!  OK, I’m making it more than what it was, but we had fun with it. You should have seen her. It was cute. She began to blush. So being the true sympathetic folk we are, we threw fries at her. It was a mess, and we all laughed. Hey, here’s one of them now. (chomp) Hmm a bit stale.  Lisa honey, bring me a Smithwicks to wash this down with please! Oh yes, I’m not behind the bar today. I’m waiting for Jeannie to come by. She has a “guest” up from Alabama.


if you have no life – and you can PROVE it mathematically.

if you enjoy pain.

if you know vector calculus but you can’t remember how to do long division.

if you chuckle whenever anyone says “centrifugal force.”

if you’ve actually used every single function on your graphing calculator.

if when you look in a mirror, you see a physics major.

if it is sunny and 70 degrees outside, and you are working on a computer.

if you frequently whistle the theme song to “MacGyver.”

if you always do homework on Friday nights.

if you know how to integrate a chicken and can take the derivative of water.

if you think in “math.”

if you’ve calculated that the World Series actually diverges.

if you hesitate to look at something because you don’t want to break down
its wave function.

if you have a pet named after a scientist.

if you laugh at jokes about mathematicians.

if the Humane society has you arrested because you actually performed the
Schrodinger’s cat experiment.

if you can translate English into Binary.

OK, my second major was physics… Who’d of thought I could apply it to mixology! So what was that again, if you mix a drink and the ice melts…..

 So one blog I visit regularly is  . A photographer from SoCal. There is a photo today that I really like. Its called “Girl with Dog”.  Ok, I like her boots, but the picture is growing on me fo some reason. Maybe you can tell me why?

Hi, what can I get you?  A cold Schmiddicks!  Yes, the meatloaf is good. Everything Charlene makes is good!

Ok. Well let me see if there are any MORE stray fries laying around before someone DOES break thier a$$.

Have a great day!

  1. glad you like the boots!

  2. that Toyota commercial annoys me to NO END!

  3. I visited the oneshotbeyond to look at the picture — great photos, Heather!

    I like the girl & the dog, too. They both exhibit independence and isolation, yet they are connected by the bright red leash. Good food for thought (also, it seems as if the dog is walking the girl).

    REALLY like the band War Stories that Heather mentions in her blog.

    That’s about all for now, so I’ll close with a new signature:
    x(ab-ab)/x = 0

    (incidentally, I laugh out loud when I hear “centrifugal force”)
