Live To Be 100

      How To Live To Be 100
1) Proper Diet. Eat more fruits and veggies. Use smaller plates. Sit and eat slowly. Drink moderately and don't smoke or use drugs. Maintain your ideal weight.
2) Stay Active. Both mentally and physically. Be active without thinking about it. Identify activities you enjoy and make them a part of your day. Walk or ride a bike instead of driving. Do activities that challenge your brain and require social interaction. Always get a good education because that’s the only thing no one can ever take away from you.
3) Find a Life Purpose. Take up a new challenges. Have confidence in yourself. To thine own self be true. Analyze how you act and react. Know your skills and capabilities. Set realistic goals. Do something to justify your existence. Be tenacious. Be innovative and creative. If you’re afraid or worried, don’t show it. Understand that today is what counts, fine clothes are itchy, and money is a burden.
4) Down Shift. Take time to relieve stress. Relaxation is key. Don't rush. Cut out the noise - television, emails, computers. Find satisfying, meaningful work. Avoid dwelling on negative or upsetting events. Keep a positive attitude. Get plenty of sleep. Don’t worry about the things that might not happen.
5) Put Family First. Establish family rituals and strong ties. Stay married. Stay close to loved ones. Micromanage your children's lives. Have good genes. Extreme long life seems to run in families.
6) Pick the Right Tribe. The people surrounding you influence your health more than almost any other factor. Reconsider ties to people who bring you down. Be likable! Develop close and respectful relationships with friends and positive people. Stay away from boring or depressing people.

Math Poems

  Zero Factorial
Man has pondered
Since time immemorial
Why 1 is the value
Of zero-factorial.

  The Mobius Strip
A mathematician confided
That a Mobius band is one-sided.
And you'll get quite a laugh
If you cut it in half,
For it stays in one piece when divided.

  A Ratio in Rhyme
A Dozen, a Gross and a Score,
plus three times the square root of four,
divided by seven,
plus five times eleven,
equals nine squared and not a bit more.

  A Vector
A vector
is a scalar
that has been pushed
too far.

  A Circle
Fiddle de dum, Fiddle de dee,
A ring round the moon is pi times d;
But if a hole you want repaired,
You use the formula Pi r squared.

There was a young man from Trinity,
Who solved the square root of infinity.
While counting the digits,
He was seized by the fidgets,
Dropped science, and took up divinity.
