The P-Mac-ing Inequality Theory:
Have you ever wondered if it is in your best interest to hit on a girl or not? This determination is actually much simpler than one may think. All that is required is to evaluate .

Urban dictionary defines P-mac-ing as the act of “mac-ing on girls until they get so annoyed and date you just to get you to shut up”. At this time it is important to distinguish between a beneficial situation and a desirable situation. A desirable situation is one that you would want if you were sober. In order to determine your benefit a cost benefit ratio must be applied. Benefit is defined as:

eqn. 1

is defined as: ( ) ( ) ( ) eqn. 2

– The Drunk Index: It is a measure of how drunk you are and is defined as: eqn. 3 ( – The Hot Index: It is a measure of how desirable a girl is to you and is defined as: eqn. 4 ( ) )

The theoretical maxima are unique to each individual and must be determined experimentally. The key to determining your theoretical maxima is to evaluate the 1) When 2) When . .

Ways to Alter Your Situation:
There are three options available to alter your indices that will drive a more beneficial outcome. [( 1) ) ( ) ( ) ] [( ) ( ) ( ) ] and bring to

Since drunkness, hotness and desperation are all state functions and are not path dependant it is sufficient to say:

– Your theoretical maximum drunk.

In Cartesian coordinates this is achieved by rotating the sphere about the about the - axis by an angle ( ) and about the - axis by an angle ( ),

- axis by an angle ( ). Applying a rotation matrix for

each operation to your situation will move you to another situation of equal benefit. Applying the will rotate you to the . In Cartesian coordinates the sequence

of operations is essential and must be carried out in a particular order.

subtraction to the inclination angle ( ) and the azimuth angle ( ). There is no alteration to the radius ( ). The benefits of spherical coordinates are that the rotation is easy to see, the sequence of operations is arbitrary and the operation involves matrix addition instead of matrix multiplication.

1) Make quick measurements of drunk you are, how hot she is and how desperate you are. 2) Divide each measurement by its respective, previously determined, theoretical maxima to determine your , and .

3) Sum the squares of the indices together to determine the result of . 4) Determine if the situation is beneficial to you. 5) If the situation is not beneficial apply one of the three options or combination of the three to make our situation more beneficial. 6) If the situation is beneficial convert 7) Locate your position on the 8) Apply the maximize her hotness. . to rotate your situation to the .

Determining If A Situation Has Changed with Time:
In order to determine if a situation is more or less beneficial over a period of time the (eqn. 6) needs to be evaluated. There are three possible outcomes: 1) ( ) ( ) ( )

-

The situation has become less beneficial over the given time period. Use any combination of the options to make your situation more beneficial.

2)

(

The situation has not changed over the given time period. Use any combination of the options to make your situation more beneficial.

3)
