I’m not much of a football fan. The only reason why I do watch the Fifa World Cup is because I could make a few bucks off the sidelines placing bets. Not that it amounted to much, but for a science geek, statistics never lie and I was always good making full use of that fact.
Mel on the other hand is a full on football junkie. She’s a die hard fan of Fulham in the English Premier League and despises anything connected to Manchester United. For the World Cup, she’ll be supporting Japan and hopefully would want to see them face off somewhere in the semi-finals. After all, this isn’t a question of who’s going to be in the finals. It’s just a question of who’s going to be facing Germany in the finals. You don’t need statistics to figure that one out.
So to commemorate Fifa World Cup 2006 and a friend’s birthday. A bunch of us who still refer to soccer as football in this country decided to go all the way and do what we usually do…something crazy. To give you a idea of what happened, I’ve taken the liberty of putting it down to a simple equation which follows:
Which is a derivative of this:
Needless to say, it was a little tougher than we thought it would be, seeing that most of us aren’t exactly what you call domestic material. But let it not be said that some of us don’t know how make the best out of life with what we have. You’d never know what insanity may come out of all that…even if it in a cake.
I do have one question though, it is actually safe to be driving under the influence of sugar? Someone give me the heads up on that once because I sure as hell don’t have the statistics for that one.
