MATH TRICK:



This really works and will only take you about ten seconds.

This is a sure fire way to find my all-time favorite movie.

I happen to be very good at math, so I did it in my head, then on paper, and finally on a calculator just to confirm my numerical capabilities.

Each time I got the same answer, and sure enough it IS my very favorite movie EVER!

DO NOT cheat. DO YOUR math, THEN compare the results to the list of movies at the bottom

You will be AMAZED at how incredibly accurate this test is.

1. Pick a number from 1-9.

2. Multiply that number by 3.

3. Add 3.

4. Multiply by 3 again.

5. Your total will be a two digit number. Add the first and second digits together to find your very favorite movie (of all time) in the list of 17 movies below:

Movie List:

1. Gone With the Wind
2. E.T.
3. Blazing Saddles
4. Star Wars
5. Forrest Gump
6. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
7. Jaws
8. Grease
9. The Obama Farewell Speech
10. Casablanca
11. Jurassic Park
12. Shrek
13. Pirates of the Caribbean
14. Titanic
15. Raiders of the Lost Ark
16. Home Alone
17. Mrs. Doubtfire

Now, ain't that something?

  1. The sum of the two numbers will always be 9. No other answer is possible. If you let your initial number be X, then the answer is 9(X+1). The individual digits of multiples of 9 add up to 9 (or multiples of 9 for larger numbers.)

  2. Jerry is pretty good at math too.

    And 9.may very well turn out to be over 50% of the voting publics favorite movie evah.

  3. Screw the math trick, I love The Movie list, they all kind of sound like wishful thinking about Obozo.



    Gone With the Wind. (hopefully soon)
    Star Wars (Obozo is from another world)
    Forrest Gump (Obozo is a Dumb as they come)
    The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly (No further explanation needed, except you can eliminate the “Good)
    Grease (He is kind of “Greasy, isn’t he!)
    The Obama Farewell Speech (Here’s where Mrs. Doubtfire comes in)
    Jurassic Park (the man IS a beast, isn’t he!)
    Titanic ( Obozo is a Disaster)
    Raiders of the Lost Ark (He wants to take away my Wealth)
    Mrs. Doubtfire ( Back to the Moocher again!)
    Being There , with Peter Sellers as "Chauncey Gardner" (The premise is about a mentally challenged guy with a confusing Past)
    And that Disney Classic, The Lyin King. (“If you Like Your Insurance, You can Keep it”
    And how about Sgt. Shultz from Hogen’s Heros….Constantly Saying ”I know nothing!
    To Russia With Love.
    The Long Red Line.
    12 Angry men.
    And Let Not Forget “The Messiah.”

    By the way Mr. FT, We’ve certainly had fun mocking Obama, The Moocher, and Obamacare in your past posts. I must confess that I was very amused.
    Like they say.....Now I’m Sitting Back with My Popcorn and to Enjoy the Show, ad the Libs and Progressive Comments Pile On. It Should Be Lots Of Fun

  5. I didn't need to do any stinkin' math. I knew what my favorite movie was simply by looking at the list! :P

  6. There is no logical reason to show "respect" for anyone who makes an ostentatious display of living high on the hog at the public's expense and shows poor taste and poor judgment in choice of preferences.

    There is a positively COMPELLING reason to show nothing but CONTEMPT and LOATHING for anyone in power determined to bring this country down to the abysmal levels of financially insolvent, Marxian-Socialist-Fabian-Collectivist Europe where living conditions are unimaginably inferior to those of the vast majority of American citizens.

    Anyone willing to believe the "propagandistics" generate by our Mortal Enemy, the UN is not only disloyal to our country, but a deluded, brainwashed bigot whose head has to be filled with poisonous leftist polemical garbage.

    Ridicule is certainly more benign than a revival of The Reign of Terror where public executions of a hated class of overlords became an all-day-every-day, occurrence.

  7. Ducky, which ones are junk. With a few exceptions I thought the list noteworthy. My favorite, Casablanca followed by Gone With the Wind.

  8. Not much argument from me. But Forest Gump and Home Alone where at least entertaining. Saw Blazing Saddles but don't remember much, the air was pretty thick. Didn't see Shrek either.

  9. Not that I agree with everything you said here, I give you a lot of credit for having the guts to say it.
    But I do agree with some of it... LOL...
    PS don't let these idiots on the left get to you.

  10. FT, do you have an opinion on a couple pianists, Helene Grimaud and Charlie Albright?

    I've heard them both recently and thought a lot of there playing. Albright seems a little to heavey on the attack and doesn't give a chance to enjoy the notes decay and Grimaud is a real daredevil who gets herself in a little trouble occasionally. Differet styles but good young players to my ear.

  11. I got censored, RN, the great hand in the sky must be a Robin Williams fan.

  12. Don't feel bad about being "censored," as you put it. I don't know how many times I've said that comments not relevant to the topic of the day are not welcome, even if they are "reasonable" in tone. This was not about movies at all. It was one of myriad anti-Obama jokes.

    It could have used Books, Plays, Operas, Poems, Philosophers or Great Political Speeches. As the title indicated, it was a MATH trick.

    Jerry Critter saw how it worked right away. Good for Jerry!

  13. Grimaud is in her forties, Ducky -- not terribly young. A very attractive, but rather tough, quasi-masculine figure. She can play anything with no apparent difficulty, and has had a successful international career, but I find it hard to warm to her playing.

    Excellence is not enough -- particularly in the performing arts. From what I have heard so far she belongs in that large category I call "Admirable -But-Not-Lovable."

    Of course I would have some difficulties with any woman who chooses to downplay her beauty in favor of a boldly assertive, pantsuit-wearing platform manner.

    I regret t say have never heard of Albright. I must look him up asap.
