I used to think I could predict the weather without taking a step outside. Why do you think this is?
1) I watch the news every morning.
2) I look outside the window every morning.
3) If it’s going to rain I start whizzing around my room like a goldfish in a bowl (or is that for earthquakes?).
4) If I’ve washed my hair that morning I know it’s going to rain.
5) Google Homepage
The answer is 4). At least, it used to be. Any morning I washed my hair, I could guarantee it would rain the same day and mess everything up.
That was true until yesterday.
Yesterday it snowed.
Happy Holidays everyone!
Apart from that, on Monday I went to Simon Singh’s lecture about Science and the battle for Free Speech. More about this in a few days, but the gist was that one could pay up to £140 million to express one’s views in London…illuminating stuff indeed.
