Java Zen:Thinking Out Loud Monday, 2017.09.25
((U C I) x (10-S))/20 x A x 1/(1-sin(F/10))

Parameters:

Aggravation (A)
Complexity (C)
Frequency (F)
Importance (I)
Skill (S)
Urgency (U)


The formula indicates that to beat Murphy's Law (a.k.a. Sod's Law) you need to
change one of the parameters. Or in the researchers' own words: "If you haven't
got the skill to do something important, leave it alone. If something is urgent
or complex, find a simple way to do it. If something going wrong will
particularly aggravate you, make certain you know how to do it."

		Mathematical formula for "anything that can go wrong, will go wrong".

Crossroads

I’m in the midst of the consulting gig from hell and just finished my fourth straight week commuting between Denver and New York City. Barely enough time to keep up on personal business, let alone blog. But there has been time to think about where I’m at and where I’m going. As time permits, I’ll post pictures I’ve taken along the way.

An intersection that needs no introduction…

…and perhaps one that does. Grand Central Station…

Pausing to spend time in these spaces, I wonder how many hello’s and goodbyes have happened here? How many hopes and dreams either ended or began at these intersections of human experience?
