    Fast Pass Math

    I once saw a website or an article explaining the math behind how the fast pass system works. I don't know what I did with it and I was wondering if anyone had a source of information. Thanks!

    The system works a little something like this:

    2 + 2 = 5

    Stare at it long enough and it'll all make sense

    LOL...be nice you two.

    Sorry I have never heard of that, but I am sure Disney has some reasoning somewhere for it.

    BTW guys, I was taught in algebra an actual formula that 1+1=3 except on Thursdays when it's 4 and when it's raining, then it's 5 Seriously there is a formula that can have 1+1=3. Dont ask me to show you cause I am old now and can barely remember my own name LOL
    It's a Disney thing. If you understood, your only question would be "can I go?"

    Dont ask me, the alcoholic algebra teacher I had in like 8th grade showed us. The freakin' thing took up 3 full blackboards (school wall kind) I am lucky I can do "What Plus One Equals Two?" in regular math. I knew there was a reason why I didnt go on to trig and calculus.

    You guys are funny

    Oh, but I loved Trig! Finally, something different than just "find X" and I guess the teachers got tired of me just circling the X's in the problem with a little note: There it is, I found it!

    If you're still looking for info, Wikipedia has a good article on FastPass. Just type fastpass in their search box. If you really want detail, check out the patent.

    The answer to 2 plus 2

    Several scientists were all posed the following question: "What is 2 * 2 ?"
    The engineer whips out his slide rule (so it's old) and shuffles it back and forth, and finally announces "3.99".
    The physicist consults his technical references, sets up the problem on his computer, and announces "it lies between 3.98 and 4.02".
    The mathematician cogitates for a while, then announces: "I don't know what the answer is, but I can tell you, an answer exists!".
    Philosopher smiles: "But what do you mean by 2 * 2 ?"
    Logician replies: "Please define 2 * 2 more precisely."
    The sociologist: "I don't know, but is was nice talking about it".
    Behavioral Ecologist: "A polygamous mating system".
    Medical Student : "4" All others looking astonished : "How did you know ??" Medical Student : :I memorized it."
    The lawyer is not sure but calls several expert witnesses all who come up with different answers and chooses the one that best suits his case.
    The tax accountant listens to the problem and says what does the client want the answer to be.

    Found an alternate ending .
    The attorney stated, "In the case of Svenson vs. the State, 2+2 was declared to be 4."

    The trader asked, "Are you buying or selling?"

    The accountant looked at the business owner, then got out of his chair, went to see if anyone was listening at the door and pulled the drapes. Then he returned to the business owner, leaned across the desk and said in a low voice, "What would you like it to be?"

    Rock on, behavioral ecologists!! Sounds like when I was studying mating systems in seahorses under Dr. H. Masonjones.
