America’s Cup 2017: Finals- Day One

Well the Battle Off Bermuda has come to this- Oracle USA v. Emirates/New Zealand. Please don’t tell me you’re surprised, this was completely predictable about 10 seconds after the close of the last series.

Capo di Tutti

Have I mentioned I was capo di tutti? Well, I was. Right at the beginning, there was this hyper secret Executive Board training session which most incoming capos used to fête their team by buying an afternoon’s worth of booze (we do love our Chianti) and “bonding” (before we allowed women this usually consisted of …

We live in a quantum state, hardly a democratic one. It’s not utterly impossible that an apple shall suddenly lift off the ground and fly back to its place on the branch, it’s just highly unlikely in this universe and though space is big, really really big, and time is long, really really long, it’s …
