I once crashed my new turbo Subaru Impreza on the Hannover autobahn under influence of this.

These days I drive a Volvo V70, consistent with my Moggian laid-back lifestyle.

I currently practice being unhappy and miserable. I've never been happier in my life.
There's nobody left I can really trust, and we've always done everything together. When you make up your mind, send me a message - I'll meet you any place, any time, and when we do meet, it's you I want to see, not the police. Remember that, won't ya?

Here’s something to cheer you up - I was in a car accident recently.

No, not driving under any influence; some one was accelerating across lanes of traffic and rammed me.

I’m not dead yet though.

Is that an annoyingly happy attitude or what?
I'm glad to hear that you're fine - completely, hopefully?
I'd suspect it's a psychological defence mechanism against idiots.

As it often happens in causal studies, they forgot about a crucial confounder.

It's not
War --> Da Vinci
and
Love --> Cuckoo clock

It should be
War <-- no choklit <-- Da Vinci
and
Love <-- Choklit <-- Cuckoo clock (you need it to precisely measure the roasting time)

Yes, thank you - just keeping mind and body relaxed and I did cancel my riding lessons for the next few weeks. And had just started them again (!), but it’s wiser to hold off right now.

However, slight vertebrae and soft tissue damage aside, I am at a wonderful conference right now. Interesting presentations and conversations.

Highly recommended to circulate with other particles in the financial data science ai ml macro soup!!!

Even for AI ML expert-cynics, so much is going on - great time to develop your business. : )

Too much is going on... 99% of the whole AI/ML shouldn't exist.
(It's safer for me not to show up at such conferences ;-) )

Don't be melodramatic. [gestures to people at conference] Tell me. Would you really feel any pity if one of those dots stopped moving forever?

Little known fact: They had to smear tuna fish on Orson Wells shoes to get the cat to lick them.

Little known fact: Most cats are really bad actors. With some exceptions: Tom, Top Cat, Pink Panther,...

My favourite was Top Cat.

Shoooo cute :-) The cat and the dog made that movie!

Apropos cats' acting skills: a romantic kiss with my boy cat and my affections being rejected by the cat girl at my last visitation (and yours truly, Ms Duck Face) :-P
