Moving to a New Place ... Part 2


I mentioned in an earlier post that I have moved to the staff apartment beginning this year. Apparently, this particular unit that I am currently staying in is well-known to be the best feng sui unit for singles in the seminary.

Let's look at the history of the tenancy in this apartment. The first tenant moved in as a single and stayed there for 6 years before moving out after getting married. The second tenant stayed there for 2 years before doing the same. So how long would the third tenant need?

So speculation is running high the the budding NT scholar might just need 6 months before he moves out of the apartment. My principal Dr Ezra Kok, who is now on 6-month sabbatical leave, has already offered his services when he returns to work, and it would be just in time.

Will the good feng sui repeat itself this time? Only time will tell.....Again, it seems to work for the ladies who stayed there, but a guy??? I think it takes a real miracle for this to happen.

I think otherwise;

a few pastors told me before, and insisted that it is true; that is , STM apartments are haunted units....

You heard this rumous before?

After extrapolating the data provided, using the Lagrange interpolation and Newton's method of finite differences, looking into the resulting polynomial tendencies, you will be getting married 1 year after moving in unless the Runge's phenomenon happens.

Hi Pearlie,

I believe you did not factor in the intangible variable L-O-V-E and the infinite unvariable constant 0-N-E in your calculation. Factoring these into the equation will produce the result- six months!
