Not that I recommend, but I'm around the first value. I indeed live on light in the summer.

Your cats are home alone while you are night club-hopping and getting astrophysical with ladies of a questionable Schwarzschild radius. What kind of a father are you? I'm contacting the Norwegian RSPCA...

I'm faintly reminded of a conversation that supposedly took place in a La Jolla cafe in the early 90's between Clive Granger, Rob Engle and Hal White. It touched on standard deviations, fat tails, co-integration, and the relative merits of heteroscedastic vs homoscedastic assumptions when dealing with models. An elderly lady stood up and, as she was leaving, turned to them and said: "I heard the whole thing, and it was disgusting!"

Good laugh at this one today:

“No, we won't. We're not negotiating with a bunch of stoned bunnies, but with a very rigid, inflexible bureaucracy working on behalf of 27 nations, some which don't like us, a lot of them don't give a fig's leaf about our problems, and only a few are sympathetic to us.

At this point, it's either something close to this deal, no deal or revoking Article 50. Take your pick.”

- I Say Moo, UK and EU thread

Clearly spoken by someone who has no idea what it is like to negotiate with a stoned bunny.

Better stick with amateur political commentary, bro.

I was under the impression that stoned bunnies were easy, but this may be a ymmv situation.

Depends on the bunny and how you define "easy."

It might remind you of a bunny:

And some of the fairer sex should spend time appreciating good champagne, WH on the gramophone and the smell of a good pipe.

Can you recommend any good champagne, Rmax? Because the best I've had tasted and smelled like burnt apple juice. It was also misadvertised as brut. I prefer Spanish cava.

Approach your problem from the right end and begin with the answers. Then one day, perhaps you will find the final question..

Yes, no question.  Nice to see you, rmax.

k - here is the champagne I had for New Year's - recommended by the store specialist.  A split was enough for two nights - about 3 glasses and I thought it was pretty nice.
