Friday

1. At the point I thought I might back Simona Halep at Winbledon, it was in reaction to that new girl, Coco, that everyone was drooling over. At that stage, we weren’t sure Serena W would be in the final and now it seems a tall order for Ms Halep but still, let the kiss of death proceed – go Simona:

As for cricket, not greatly interested these days. Whoever wins Eng v Aus, well done, I’ll cheer on that team in the final.

Speaking with a gentleman who vends in a neighbourhood farmers’ market, I learnt something interesting, and probably true. Surviving family farms usually lack “organic” credentials. This is because getting them, from the bureaucracies that dispense them, is an immensely time-consuming process, and involves costs that would erase most of the little farmer’s profits. You have to be a big, faceless, industrial concern to afford the official “organic” labels that sucker big city consumers into paying double for essentially the same goods. That the whole system is massively corrupt, can almost go without saying. It was designed to be.

3. Speaking of drooling – it is sickening the way the captive media is fawning all over the traitress May. As mentioned on Twitter, when they started calling her essentially decent, that was the time to throw up. Decent? ROTFL. Utter bollox. Lying, conniving, betraying – that’s her ‘legacy’. Ding.  Dong.

4. Beware of the Riemann hypothesis, oh yes:

In mathematics, the Riemann hypothesis is a conjecture that the Riemann zeta function has its zeros only at the negative even integers and complex numbers with real part 12. … The name is also used for some closely related analogues, such as theRiemann hypothesis for curves over finite fields.

Indeed. And while we’re there, if you understand this, you most likely have no friends:

    Hey, U15, boy! Ten years from now you wanna have a cup of coffee, or a bottle of water and chat? Oh wait, I will be older then too!!! Awwwwww. Hey! my granddaughter will be ten years older by then, but, awwwww, still much too young for you. Well, then, ten years after that! Awwww, but you will be ten years older too.

    That is life. Now am I right?

    By then maybe those ‘soccer gals’ will have tied you once, or twice…maybe even win one. Perhaps they will be gracious winners like your team. One can hope.

    Hope is good.
