Re: UK and the EU: In or out?

It works for the French because they are lazy. Brits aren’t good with leisure time, we’d turn to drink and fighting.
It's cool. I'm lazy too. Laziness drives invention.

Re: UK and the EU: In or out?

Of course we can’t do anything in the next 30 days. The French don’t get back from their holidays until October...2023.
The Summer Shutdown is a glorious thing. I wish we had something like that in the UK.

Macron, the defender of Irish peace UK telling Ireland that the solution to British problems is Ireland forming a customs union with the UK is a bit like Germany telling Poland that the solution to the Russian gas pipeline problems is running an extraterritorial corridor from Berlin to Kaliningrad.

You should ignore anything that contains the words “democratic” and “Junker” in the same universe, let alone the same paragraph!
I always found Junker to be quite retiring, he has a swagger about him.

Some were invited " The  Whig  majority in Parliament passed the Act with the support of both Houses of Parliament, despite some opposition concerning a "conflux of aliens that would be invited over". A counter-argument is presented in the preamble of the Act, that "the increase of people is a mean...

Re: Python tricks

I once worked with a guy who was getting red in the face whenever someone modified anything touching his code, or even asked questions about it. Later it turned out that he copy&pasted code stolen from his previous employer into our codebase. He was kindly asked to submit his resignation. Now he's a...

Re: Python tricks

Nice! A good experiment would be to compare the respective functions wrt accuracy and performance and try to come up guidelines on 'best practices' (to use an awful phrase). It's the same algorithm, so the accuracy should be the same. You can calculate the sample variance if you want. BTW you use a...
