What?,she doesn't come around to your apartment and sing it to you personally over a few fine single malts? How very disappointing.

Actually she's a neighbour of an old friend of mine- but I don't really like to drone on about such trivia.

I was saying just the same thing about Dame Kiri Takanawa to Richard O'Brian at the Ivy just the other night while out with some people who's names I couldn't possibly mention.

That is the most confusing lecture i have ever had the displeasure to listen to, i can only assume that most of the audience threw their note books in the bin and fell asleep.

I can only conclude, from this lecture, that a genius observing an apple falling and coming up with a theory of gravity is not real science

May i point out that i fix cars for a living and i am not a university graduate. Working in Engineering requires Maths and logics. I have never understood wobbly heads

All the lectures i attended in my five years of college made logical sense, but this chap's lecture is jumping left and right, not following any logical sequence which i would expect from a Scientist. I think Vonnies post of the cat resembles my feelings on this subject lol.
