Admittedly, the author himself is on record stating that he does not make jokes in base 13.

Actually, 6 X 9 == 9 X 6 because multiplication is commutative, or in Norge, Abelian.

Ah. I tried reading the 'book' but I fell asleep half-way through. What's he on about?  If you (want to) remember the 60s means you weren't there :D

Well then what about using QF modeling techniques on human behavior?

What if every financial instrument is really a derivative who's underlying is humanity?

Do we have a BS of human behaviour? A single formula describing rigorously the most important factors of human behaviour? If not it's carving of the air.
Single formula? LOL! Only children need things reduced to a single formula.

There is much more to this, 69  (look into ancient drawings, and dont read the modern crap historian interpreters, there was good geometers also back in time, they knew their math. ).  

It is not over, this is the (new) beginning!

Speaking of Bobby Socks, I know "Eddy from Norway" who was singing in the backing group. He is now a taxi driver in Bergen. Do you know him?

This in not for your benefit, but there may be youngsters around here who did not watch the 1978 Eurovision final in real time, and missed this spectacle:  


It is not entirely shocking that it was the first performance to score zero points in the modern scoring system. What is shocking is that it topped the Norwegian hit lists for weeks afterwards.
