Easy as 1, 2, 3 (in base 5 + 5)


12 = 3 x 4
56 = 7 x 8
90 = 360/4

      0 + 12 = 3 x 4
      5 + 67 = 8 x 9 = 360/5

(there are 60 = 360/6 seconds in a minute)

4 x 5 x (6 + 6 + 6) = 360 = (5 + 5) x 6 x 6

                    1 + 2 + 3 + 4 = 5 + 5
1 + 2 + 3 + ... + 8 = 9 x 4 = 6 x 6

    1 + 2 + 3 + ... + (5 + 5) = 55
    1 + 2 + 3 + ... + 6 x 6 = 666

Paradox of Expectation

When you expect a lot of some promising event, thing or person, it tends to be more disappointing than it would have been had you not, so in order to maximize your pleasure you need to avoid expecting so much: If you expect to be disappointed, then you won't be disappointed!
