Here for the geek in all of us are fifty foolproof equations that take the guesswork out of life--and the funniest twist on an idea since Richard Smith's "The Dieter's Guide to Weight Loss During Sex." Call it the algebra oracle: By plugging in the right variables, GEEK LOGIK answers life's most persistent questions. It covers Dating and Romance, Career and Finance, and everyday decisions like "Should I get a tattoo? Can I still wear tight jeans? Is it time to see a therapist? How many beers should I have at the company picnic?"
How does it work? Take a simple issue that comes up once or twice a week: "Should I call in sick?" Fill in the variables honestly, such as D for doctor's note (enter 1 for "no," 10 for "yes," and 5 for "yes, but it's a forgery"), R for importance of job (1-10, with 10 being "personally responsible for Earth's orbit around Sun"), Fj for how much fun you have at work (1-10, with 10 being "personal trainer for underwear models"), N for how much you need the money (1-10, with 10 being "I owe the mob"), then do the math, and voila--if the product, Hooky, is greater than 1, enjoy your very own "Ferris Bueller's Day Off."
Includes a pocket calculator so that prospective geeks can immediately solve the equation on the back cover: "Should I buy this book?"
