Yesterday evening, a friend and I went to an organ recital in the St. Baafs cathedral in Ghent, where we listened to, amongst others, the Passacaglia in c by Johann Sebastian Bach, a majestic musical waterfall, superbly rendered by Mr. Edward De Geest, a true virtuoso on the organ. While listening to the above-mentioned piece with eyes closed, I […]
I am currently re-reading Douglas Adam’s The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, a humoristic classic of the sci-fi genre. When I came to the passage where the Imperial Trans-galactic Council was imperial in name only, because the Emperor was in stasis and had been for quite some time, my fantasy started to run amok and […]

From http://highoctanehumor.com/ Two hillbillies walk into a restaurant. While having a bite to eat, they talk about their moonshine operation. Suddenly, a woman at a nearby table, who is eating a sandwich, begins to cough. After a minute or so, it becomes apparent that she is in real distress. One of the hillbillies looks at her […]

What you been up to, Pooch!??? From *heart touching fun *:
I shall propose a theory, which will have any and every mathematician or scientist worth his or her salt wearily shaking their heads, to their detriment, of course…: I propose that straight lines are antithesis to nature and that what we perceive as such are parts of an enormously long curve, because nature can not […]
