I have less to say now that I am older.
I’m rarely right when I make predictions. I have no intuition.
I’ve discovered that being uncomfortable is still being. Being comfortable is much nicer when it comes as a relief from discomfort.
I doubt that life is an intended thing. It is entirely an accident.
I wonder whether matter is an accident too. My guess is that this is so, but I have no intuition.
What we can be certain about is that equilibrium was never the start of things. Most likely it will be the end of things. But I’m rarely right when I make predictions.
If the start of everything is necessarily non-equal, it explains a lot about existence.
The purpose of life is to recognise patterns. My purpose is to recognise that this pattern is flawed, and that is all I need say…
…Except that there are fewer pleasures than once there were.
Canadian Supreme Court to hear case of couple who sued Air Canada for not being able to order a 7Up in French
The Supreme Court of Canada has agreed to hear the appeal of a couple who sued Air Canada when they weren’t able to order a 7Up in French.
Michel and Lynda Thibodeau filed eight complaints with the official languages commissioner over the English-only services they say they received from Air Canada during trips taken between January and May, 2009.
The Federal Court awarded the couple $12,000 in compensation for the times Air Canada did not serve them in French. Air Canada was also ordered to apologize to the Thibodeaus.
Are we talking “Haut-Sept” or what?
This is more about the way that someone couldn’t explain why they had no Haut-Sept, I suspect. See this
Archeological dig beneath Bloomberg’s future London headquarters reveals ancient Roman ruins dubbed ‘Pompeii of the north’
Archeological digs on the site of Bloomberg LP’s future London headquarters have revealed Roman building remains and some 10,000 well-preserved objects that have led the site to be dubbed the “Pompeii of the north.”
Museum of London archeologists have discovered good-luck charms, coins, drains and even leather shoes — dating from the mid-40’s A.D. (when the Romans founded London) to 410 A.D. The objects are in good condition because a now-lost river, the Walbrook, kept the ground wet and prevented their decay.
“What we’ve found is essentially a slice through the entire history of Roman London,” said Sophie Jackson, project manager for the Bloomberg Place excavation. “We’ve got, in one corner of this site, the whole sequence: every year of Roman occupation, represented by buildings and yards and alleyways — places where people lived and worked for 350 years, one layer above another.” (Museum of London Archeology)
The new architecture reminds me of something…
