Re: Boris Johnson - the last 100 days

[...] I will often read a series by the same author I have been known to read many books by the same author because one book impressed me, yet the others were rubbish. (I have a theory that Joseph Heller didn't write Catch 22 . If you've read anything else by him you'll know why) I haven't read Lol...

Re: New Clock Synchronization Gedanken Experiment

The Sagnac effect is result of the non-trivial topology of space. Long story short, light acquires a geometric phase while travelling in space. Time is equivalent to space curvature. But I'm only sure 93.7% of it (my Amundsen raspberry sour was 6.3).

Re: I don't understand The Telegraph

The Guardian is the same: first they cry about climate change and then angrily complain that there's no social benefits for 2+ child.

Re: All about Cats

But what do I know, as simple Mosh Pitter. I'l ask about Flamenco when he's back. Today he travels from Prague to Berlin. I don't li...

Re: norway

Cold, reserved, bordering with rude, obsessed about respecting each other's personal space... I'm actually going for a beer with guys who sat next to me in the opera (I'd prefer with that handsome Ukrainian baritone, though) ;-)

Re: norway

People are friendly and helpful (sweep the stereotypes to the dustbin!), lots of museums, galleries, parks, fjords!!! and the opera - spectacular architecture (Sydney can hide) and world...

Re: Brexit - the last 50 days

Depends who gets the jobs. It will be great if they don’t go to Eastern Europeans like they did before Brexit.
At least you're not planning to put us in concentration camps!
