Toad-spawn! Newts! I had feared that the addition of 26 tons of rubble and cement to the old carp pond to reduce its depth from seven to two feet in depth might have discouraged our annual guests for a few years, but no, they have come back straight away this spring and resumed their frolicking. 

Alternative Physics

The Hypersphere Cosmology model has successfully resisted several weeks of siege on the Cosmo Quest Forum.

I took it there and challenged a panel of experts to falsify it. A fierce assault began. Running repairs and upgrades to the defences occurred during the battle.

Eventually the referee gave a red card to the self-appointed leader of the opposition for losing his temper, and I retired with the theory unfalsified and strengthened.

During the sometimes less than civil debate it became apparent that Hypersphere Cosmology needed a few tweaks and a much fuller explication of its 17 core equations. It should now appear comprehensible to anyone with basic algebra, geometry, and physics.

I now present it here: - https://www.specularium.org/hypersphere-cosmology

Each equation now has its own sub-page of explanation of the physical principles it uses.

We now laugh at Flat Earth theories. I suspect that generations to come will laugh at the idea that for more than a century, people believed we lived in a Flat Universe that expanded at the speed of light and began with a big bang.

I now seek higher level falsification or collaborators to take Hypersphere Cosmology forward.

Politics

I have met older people in the UK who have reservations about accepting their Oxford-Astra-Zeneca Covid vaccine because they have come across negative information about it originating in the EU, suggesting for example that it may lack efficacy for those over 65.

That misinformation has an entirely political basis. It has absolutely no scientific basis. The Europeans put out this misinformation to try and cover their unbelievably incompetent screw up of procurement and distribution of vaccines within the EU.

Belgium, the rotten heart of Europe, has the highest death rate per million of any sizeable country on earth.

The high-level fratricide in progress within the Scottish National Party comes as no surprise. The Loch Ness Sturgeon made treasonous overtures to the EU in the immediate aftermath of the Brexit vote. Expansion and preservation of political power base remains her only priority.

Culinary matters.

The Full Bristol Breakfast.

The privilege of living near this international trading city brings with it access to exotic ingredients from all over the world.

A lockdown years’ worth of experimentation at the laboratories of Chateaux Chaos and at the Welsh coastal research facility have led to the development of an optimal nutritional repast now designated ‘The Full Bristol Breakfast’: -

One handful of organic porridge oats.

One tin of responsibly sourced flaked Tuna.

A couple of cubic inches of cheese, preferably Blue Stilton.

A desert spoonful of smooth peanut butter.

A desert spoonful of coconut butter.

A teaspoonful of mixed herbs.

A teaspoonful of powdered turmeric.

A teaspoonful of chili sauce.

A dozen pitted green olives.

A cupful of water.

 

Heat all the ingredients in a pan with constant stirring until the cheese begins to melt and the porridge thickens. Eat immediately, direct from the pan. Total preparation, consumption, and clear up time, just 8 minutes.

During consumption, meditate upon the nutritional value of the ingredients and the physical strength and mental acuity that they will stimulate, rather than upon the taste which will become more agreeable with time.

The Full Bristol Breakfast provides sufficient sustenance for an entire days’ worth of gruelling physical, mental, or magical activity.

Recommended dose – do not exceed one portion on alternate days.
