Don't worry, there will be the second wave.

BTW, my hair in the middle of lockdown after a relatively nice Peruvian wave phase went full curl. I got depressed from looking in the mirror.

I actually tamed and tied the curls at the back of my head for the photo, because I'm still not ready to come out with my afro - I have black Facebook friends who would unfriend me for using this word, but I do have a secret talent to grow what looks like an actual afro. Vs straightened version for comparison -I'm straight again, phew! (it's heavily shopped - I've been playing with filters on my photos in straight for an hour - self-hair-love!). PS, the curly photo has a cheat "smoothening" on my face, because I had a huge cat scratch under my eye that had to be removed.

According to an internal Datasim Administration study
Half of the Wilmott veterans suffered From what psychiatrists call
Post-traumatic posting disorder
Many complain of ranting, ppauper, or negative probabilities (not necessarily in that order)
Some succumb to monolog interior
Eight to ten years after non-stop streams of consciousness
Almost 100 thousand men (and a couple of women)
Are still fighting the post Wilmott post war
None of them received a hero's welcome

I've seen people publishing worse things and even calling it science, e.g. Lovelock's Gaia hypothesis or 90% of the AI overfitting.

Actually, in his book from 2019 (I read only reviews) Lovelock clung to AI, intelligent and nice machines who will one day save the world. In 2020 we have a major obstacle on the way to this bright future, the Covid crisis, and the whole AI priesthood takes the vow of silence on this subject. However, to have any chance of getting funding, you have to stuff some AI bullshit into your Covid-19-related research proposal. Here is mine:

Call the Court physician

www.youtube.com/watch?v=t80UDdbV3Mk

"Look at the King! Look at the the King! Look at the King, the King, the King!
The King is in the all together
But all together the all together
He's all together as naked as the day that he was born.
The King is in the all together
But all together the all together
It's all together the very least the King has ever worn."

That could be a great question for that 2020 Dutch Scientific Quiz.

The answer is probably a 2-tuple.

Elite golfing weekend in Clifden

https://www.rte.ie/news/politics/2020/0821/1160425-politics-dara-calleary/

Mr Buttimer apologised unreservedly for attending the event, which he said was an unintended but serious lapse of judgement.

I guess that’s fair. But illegal prostitution, like the distribution and use of illegal drugs, carry a tremendous amount of social baggage because of its illegality. Prohibition ought to be very low on the list of remedies for dealing with undesirable behavior. Especially when the behavior is deemed undesirable primarily because it offends some people’s religious fantasy.

My attitude to sex is not religiously motivated - it's just the way I'm wired ;-)
I understand that delegalisation in the name of feminist ideals would cost the industry victims safety and more deaths. I'd rather see brothels providing men for women - let's make it equal that way.
