We bought a new toy for our cats. I called him Sucker.

I feed one of my cats Dutch cheese each night at 23.00 CET. It makes sense.

Squaring the cat??

Long ago I came home from a mathzy-schmatzy lecture and played with my cats. Seeing how precise jumps they make to catch the toy on a line I realised that their instinct is a perfect solver of differential equations. And they are better at passing these skills to their children and colleagues. People are so lobomised with their chalk & board science.

Maybe you can outsource your cats to solve SIR models?

I vaguely remember this

Incidentally, Edgbaston has a very famous cricket pitch in leafy Birmingham.

So cricket can be interesting after all?

My cats can't be outsourced to give a damn, really. Not that I complain: my mornings

Actually, yes. Historically, we associated it with the coloniser, but a few years back Ireland beat Pakistan, Bangladesh, and then i studied the rules and it then becomes exciting, believe it or not. Just like baseball. We used to spend whole weekends watching (and score-taking) the game. Very relaxing. BTW Junior flew to NYC on his own when he was 12 to watch the NY Yankees play.

You look terribly intellectual in those glasses, what .. like PhD student in Irish literature. What do you think of the work of James Joyce?
