It has already started. palm luggable 

I see people carrying two mobiles + power bank in one hand  :tellme:
Their fingers work hard just to hold the three.

Add a hand purse, the ladies carry, and you start to wonder "how on earth they manage it"

This simple horse algebra question has left the internet baffled – but can YOU solve it?

They say the answer is 21. I say it is 42(with MDAS order of operations). Who has the problem with their math?

Carolina Reapers measure a minimum of 1.57 million Scoville units, a measure of hotness; jalapeños, in comparison, measure about 10,000.

That's one hot pepper. Want to try one?

are you making the mistake of thinking that there is a pair of boots and a pair of horseshoes in the last line?
Or am I missing something :-\

Converting images to letter,

a + a + a = 30
a + 2 b + 2 b = 18
2 b - 2 c = 2
c + a * b = ?

Solving the Algebra equations,

3 a = 30
=> a = 30 / 3 = 10

a + 4 b = 18
=> 4 b = 18 - a = 18 - 10 = 8
=> b = 8 / 4 = 2


2 b - 2 c = 2
=> 2 c = 2 b - 2 = 2 * 2 - 2 = 4 - 2 = 2
=> c = 2 / 2 = 1

c + a * b = 1 + 10 * 2 = 1 + 20 = 21

Answer 21

Regards,

Anand

P.S. Somehow the horse image is not showing in the quoted message. Tried many times but could not set it.

^ agreed Anand,
I cant really see how to get any other result (?)

A bit of a proverbial storm in a teacup, I think.

Yes, I think that was my problem. Details, details.

Music, especially pop music, is based on patterns.  It makes new songs seem familiar, because you've basically heard them before.

Yes, I gather that it's called "formulaic music". "Musicians" have been using that approach for years, thus explaining the depressing seemingly moronically repetitive nature of a lot of the music - and there's apparently been a lot of not-so-subtle sampling/copying going on at the same time, creating copyright disputes. Every now and then though, it seems that someone with a streak of creativity or an unusual catch in their voice develops a catchy new pattern/formula, and then lots of copycats move in to ride on its coattails.
I guess that's simply what one would expect to get though, with an industry that seems to have adopted a mass-production approach.
