Problems, Mathematical and Otherwise

Young David Hogg 18 year old student at Stoneman-Douglas High School, Parkland Florida and the current poster boy for Gun Control is upset and not just because of guns or the NRA.  No, Young David Hogg has applied to four California Colleges and they all turned him down.  Hogg, who says he is going to change the world, claims he has a GPA of 4.24 and an SAT score of 1270.  Since GPA or grade point average is scored on a basis of 1 to 4 with 1, being the lowest and 4 being the absolute highest, it may be that math, is Young David Hogg’s problem.  Not that he would exaggerate because he’s only 18 and on T.V. every night or that he would ever lie to us.

Then we have Young David Hogg’s SAT score and the SAT is two basic exams, one for reading and writing and the other for math.  You can score between 200 as the lowest and 800 the highest for each of them and then your scores are combined.  David Hogg’s score of 1270 if true is in the 80 percentile and is okay, but nothing special.  So we’re sure the reason he did not get accepted is somewhere in the numbers, his actual numbers.  We hate to think it’s because he put down on his application that he is going to change the world and the reviewers thought he was delusional.  Or that they gave his potential slots to an illegal alien, especially if it was one who owned a gun.

And, Planned Parenthood tweeted out that they need a Disney Princess to have an abortion.  This means a Snow White or the Little Mermaid and therein is the problem.  We doubt the Disney artists ever, drew in all the parts.  Why would they?  The Disney Princess’s are cartoons.  But without all the parts, pregnancy is not an option and well, an abortion isn’t in the cards either.

And, Pope Francis has declared there is no hell, which is going to leave a whole lot of people, with nowhere to go.  It also means you can no longer tell anyone to go hell.  It’s not there.  And, we won’t be able to say it’s hot as hell or get out of someplace, like a bat out of hell.  Now we don’t mean to complain, especially about something Pope Francis gives a pronouncement on but you can see from just a few examples here that this is going to play hell, with the English language.

    4.0 is no longer the limit for a high school GPA, Sir Don, although it still is in college. I am sure all those California colleges are kicking themselves in the ass for not admitting the newly minted celebrity. Maybe he’ll end up where my girl teaches, San Diego State, since he’s obviously bent on college in CA.

    As for the Pope cancelling Hell, I rendered my verdict on that today: http://www.richardcahill.net/home/pope-cancels-hell-satan-really-pissed-off

  • David Hogg is 17 (not 18) according to news reports I’ve read, which may not seem like a big deal, but there’s probably quite a few 17 year old kids who thought they were going to change the world, but, after a year of being out in the real world, realized the world isn’t all that easy to change. But then his father was an FBI agent, so maybe 17 year old David should already know…

    Richard the IVth, I figured it was probably something like that but then having a 4.24 out of 4 was funny and funny wins.

    Loved your article. It’s a bummer when people don’t stop to consider the unintended consequences. Even if they are the Pope. But you did answer one question for me. I always wondered if people in hell really wanted ice water.

    Muse, we wanted him to seem a little older. This is a news outlet and when the legend conflicts with the facts, print the legend. This is the legend of David Hogg unfolding. We think he’s going to change the world even with its hard knocks.

    Don,

    Ditto Ricardo and muse, and ditto your response! And love the observation on Disney cartoons and anatomical correctness and logical possibilities. LOL 🙂 Right on!

    Mark,

    Thank you. We do get the idea in the minds of Planned Parenthood, it’s just that sometimes people don’t think things through. And, that’s why we’re here.

    Don
