Many people claim that romantics cannot be described by mathematical
formulas – however it is very easy to show that this claim is not true.
Suppose you are considering how to spend the time with your girlfriend.
Suppose you have several scenarios:
1) go with your girlfriend to place A (for example to the seashore);
2) go with your girlfriend to place B (for example to Los Angeles);
3) go with your girlfriend to place C (for example to Bahamas);
4) go with your girlfriend to place D (etc).
After you have gone to that place you have several scenarios:
1) do action Y (for example walking on the seashore);
1) do action X (for example dinner in expensive restaurant);
1) do action Z (etc).
The task question:
how you can estimate which scenario is more romantic?
(in other words
which scenario will be scored by higher scores by your girlfriend)
Below is the mathematical formula showing how you can mathematically
calculate the amount of romantics.
We need to take [your invested resources] and multiple them by [how
much meaninglessly these resources are wasted]. The product of these
two arguments is equal to the [amount of romantics].
[Your invested resources] x [How much meaninglessly these resources are
wasted] = [Amount of romantics].
Let’s describe more detailed.
[Your invested resources] consist of [your invested time] multiplied by
[your spent amount of money].
[Your invested resources] = [Your invested time] x [Your spent amount
Thus full formula is:
[Your invested time] x [Your spent amount of money] x [How much
meaninglessly these resources are wasted] = [Amount of romantics].
Because your girlfriend considers that the value of [your invested
time] is zero because “everybody has time” thus we can eliminate the
argument [your invested time] from the formula which leads to the
simplification of the formula.
And the simplified final formula is:
[Your spent amount of money] x [How much meaninglessly these
are wasted] = [Amount of romantics].
Below are several practical examples which illustrate the usage of the
Suppose you park your car somewhere on the green grass (because you
wanted your girlfriend to enjoy nice scenery) and then the policeman
comes and charges you a fine. The bigger fine you have to pay the more
romantic is the event. If you have parked your car on the green grass
and you were not fined then the level of romantics is very low or
almost zero. It is obvious that to lose money paying fine to the police
is a very irrational thing, however if this money is lost because of
HER then she considers that the event is very romantic, and the bigger
the amount of money is lost the more romantic you are.
Next example. Gifts. If the gift is some useful practical thing (no
matter what it is – a pot, a fork, a refrigerator, a washing machine,
no matter what kind of thing it is, as long as it has any practical
usage) then such gift is considered to be very unromantic and even more
– not only unromantic but even an insult. It does not matter what is
the price of this thing. It can cost a million. However if this thing
has any practical usage then this thing is unromantic, and the more
this thing costs the more unromantic it is.
In other words, in formula
[Your spent amount of money] x [How much meaninglessly these resources
are wasted] = [Amount of romantics]
the argument [how much meaninglessly these resources are wasted] is
negative (because the gift is practical useful thing), thus the amount
of romantics is negative and you are written-off by your girlfriend.
If your gift is some impractical thing (a fluff, a jewel, cut flowers
which will die soon, etc) then such gift is romantic. And the more the
spent amount of money does not meet the practical application the more
romantic is the gift. Additional explanation here is needed. Suppose
you gave her a diamond costing millions however you are millionaire
yourself – such gift is considered to be romantic however not very
much. However if you are a poor student with small studentship and you
have spent your whole studentship to buy a cut flower (which will die
in several days) and you have no money left to buy food to eat – in
this case you are very romantic and wonderful.
If you will show this formula to your girlfriend then in her eyes you
will become the biggest looser ever for the rest of your life. This is
the reason why the formula above is esoteric (designated for only very
small circle of users).
