Game theory is starting to make a frightening kind of sense. Or maybe my brain is rotting. Its still either trivial or inapplicable though. Big books of philosophy are a waste of time. Small books of philiosophy however, are a different matter. I highly recommend John Raulston Saul‘s “On Equilibrium“. Its about hot to think, …

Our new flat’s too small for this, so we’re getting rid of it. Huge, solid, and has a black leatherette inset so you can pretend you’re a lawyer. Three drawers as well, on smooth runners. What more could anyone ask for in a desk? If there’s an earthquake, you can hide under it whilst your …

While Wellington has another Antarctic southerly, spare a thought for the Northern hemisphere: Europe has another heat wave. The last one, in 2003, killed 20,000 people. Whoops. So obviously, the solution to global warming is to put all the nations on floats, and move them north or south, depending on what particular weather they want …

I tell you, this country’s going to the dogs. They let anyone in these days, especially all those bloody asians. Coming over here and having babies and working hard at school and getting lots of qualifications and becoming doctors and lawyers. Its the end of society, I tell you! And the bastard Yanks. If they …

Thanks to pombagira, I now have a kete full of tacky crap, including a plastic tiki, a black singlet and some jaffas. Apparently, the presentation of the tacky crap is a traditional part of the ceremony. But now I’m officially here. And any risk of taking it too seriously was removed by the oil painting …

To remind tatjna what she’d miss out on if she didn’t read LJ, and to add to happyinmotion.com’s n3kk1d pics quota: Not the best pic, but everyone’s probably too hung over/tired to worry. Hope TeeBee/Concord/every other D&B act in the world was good last night and most of the morn.

This course is all game theory. Arse. [EDIT – we just spent an hour making mathematical models of strategies of how to play rock-paper-scissors. I think this proves that economists are a blight upon humanity. Also, the law school creche was just outside the lecture room window, with brightly wrapped toddlers playing in the sandpit. …

S* started aerials with and I at Circus House, three years ago. She’s now in Vegas, with pics and movies and all: Alternatively, movies from the Shuttle launch. Its majestic. For that much money, it’d better be. And me? Legs just fine after a weekend of boarding, possibly due to the lack of full-on eight …

Ruapehu had a foot of powder. However, it was covered with an inch of ice. Off-piste, the ice was continuous, not patchy and smooth on a board-length scale, hence you could reach warp speed with nothing holding you back but an invigorating buzz and the fact that if you fell over, you’d be falling onto …
