Noted Forestville mathematician Boris Gorky uses his vast and unparalleled knowledge of mathematics to solve vexing scientific, and common everyday problems through mathematical equations, much to his wife’s anguish.
Mr. Gorky notoriously suffers from anxiety so every Halloween he cannot decide what candy to distribute to trick or treaters. To solve the lingering problem he set about resolving it with the following equation he developed:
He dispersed Gummy Bears.
Friends and colleagues say bow ties are an important part of Mr. Gorky’s professional look. However, he has difficulty deciding which bow tie to wear each day to the office. Last Tuesday for example he wanted to wear a dog bone bow tie that said “I’ve arrived.” To solve the conflict he identified the problem, developed a plan, and then mathematically solved the problem.
Based on his math, he opted for a tie instead.
Mrs. Gorky enjoys antiquing but this is not an interest shared by her husband. So, last month she asked him if he would care to accompany her to the Flea Market at the Crossing in Plainville. He flippantly responded “whatever.”
According to friends it led to quite a row. He diligently explained that his decision was cognitive based on facts not suppositions. To support his view he painstakingly gathered data, made observations, developed a theory, tested his theory and created a formula within seconds of her question.
Mrs. Gorky went alone.
