A Simple Question! What is 1/2 of 8
What is 1/2 of 8?
I shall now ask you a simple question.
What indeed is 1/2 of 8, I ask?
Is it simply 4 or is it significantly more,
Is not 1/2 of 8 simply o or 0; I say!
Perhaps you could also picture 3,
Or visually a blatant - E.
Or could we add some flexibility (with or without ease),
And mention the inevitable that 1/2 of eight,
Could be digested as LEFT-OVERS,
Is there more? Now stretch that mind (not your stomach)!
1/2 of 8 could be simply the infamous and Spanish, pieces of 8
Now especially you mathematically inclined,
Indeed there is if we presume that 1/2 of 8 is E,
Then we can conclude since E = MC (to the second power),
Then logically 1/2 of 8 is the infamous equivalent to Einstein's famous equation...
1/2 of eight = MC (to the second power) you see...
In computer science I believe (Mr. Bivill could correct me) if a bit is 8
and 1/2 a bit is a nibble; can we conclude perhaps 1/2 of 8 is a nibble
Well, 1/2 of Hut 8 could be considered Hut 3 at Bletchley, England during World War II.
A most interesting place where "halving" or cracking occurred to defeat Nazi Germany...
Now 1/2 of 8 could be so much more,
Yet that is for another more ancient door...
