Wonder how he would fare against this yokozuna

On pushing (no punching), I'd bet on yokozuna: The Gypsy King is a tall guy on long thin legs.

But we lead in rugby, right?

I think British science is cargo cult science: people who achieve success pat on the back and praise each other, so we do the second part and expect a miracle.

Apropos satellites, I wonder if this is true: 'We've bought the wrong satellites': UK tech gamble baffles experts

That C code COVID_19 is beginning to feel like cargo cult at this stage. I just wonder what the busy-bodies on github are up to..
