Tag Archive: divide by zero


 

It’s Chuch Norris’ birthday today! So how old is he this year? Well, the easiest way to determine Chuck Norris’ age is to cut him in half and count the rings. Since he won’t allow that, he claims he’s 71. But his roundhouse kick killed all the dinosaurs, so the math doesn’t seem to work out… Wait, it’s okay, because Chuck Norris can divide be zero.

 

So I scoured the Internet for the life of Chuck Norris, and this is what I found:

Chuck Norris got his drivers license at the age of 16. Seconds.

Chuck Norris used to work at Disneyland as a teenager. His beard was one of their rides until the “accident” that killed 30 wuss boy scouts.

Chuck Norris has the greatest Poker-Face of all time. He won the 1983 World Series of Poker, despite holding only a Joker, a Get Out of Jail Free Monopoly card, a 2 of clubs, 7 of spades and a green #4 card from the game UNO.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is based on a true story: Chuck Norris once swallowed a turtle whole, and when he crapped it out, the turtle was six feet tall and had learned karate.

James Cameron wanted Chuck Norris to play the Terminator. However, upon reflection, he realized that would have turned his movie into a documentary, so he went with Arnold Schwarzenegger.

In fact, when Arnold says the line, “I’ll be back” in the first Terminator movie, it is implied that is he going to ask Chuck Norris for help.

A man once asked Chuck Norris if his real name is “Charles.” Chuck Norris did not respond; he simply stared at him until he exploded.

So there you have it! The totally true life of Chuck Norris!

3-Way Tic-Tac-Toe

 

The other day, I was sitting in my Human Geography class, and I was suddenly hit by a brilliant idea, nay, a stroke of genius! I had invented a new game! Instead of the normal, two-player tic-tac-toe, I devised the dazzling 3-player tic-tac-toe! I call it: 3-Way Tic-Tac-Toe! Whoa, watch out! We’ve entered the realm of Divide by Zero! Too… much… epic!!!

 

ANYWAY, here’s the rules: instead of the normal two vertical parallel lines and two horizontal parallel lines, you have three each way. A player can be Xs, Os, or check marks, and take turns in that order. Instead of trying to get 4 in a row (I’ve tried, and believe me, no one will win), you try to get 3 in a row, just like normal tic-tac-toe. There are two versions of 3-Way Tic-Tac-Toe, classic rules or the point system. In classic rules, the first person to have 3 in a row wins. In the point system, you keep filling the board until there are no spaces left, and then whoever has the most 3-in-a-rows wins. It is an automatic win, however, if a player does happen to get 4 in a row. 2nd and 3rd places are determined by how many 3-in-a-rows they have on the board.

 

I developed these rules when playing by myself (I’m not pathetic; I was in class!), and I just keep forgetting to try playing it with my friends. But what’s great is that I wasn’t getting cat’s games when playing against myself, which is something you can’t avoid when you play normal tic-tac-toe. So try this game out and let me know how it works for you! The only drawback is that you have to have more than one friend. Let me know how that goes, too.
