Well, for those redirected from the ur blog, Thought Experiments, in search of 'fun' - what can I say? Fun is a tricky one on a wet bank holiday Monday morning, when a chap of my constitution should be out striding over the downs on the lookout for butterflies and birds and curious wildflowers. But here I am stuck at home, sitting at the laptop, while outside all is cloud and wind and sheeting rain. What's worse, I awoke to discover that, according to the muesli-knitters who create Radio 4's 'news agenda', the most important thing that had happened in the whole wide world was this, the revival of an idea so deranged and so obviously flawed that even the Guardian and even the government saw through it. But sure enough, there is was - lead item on the News, and lead item post-News, with eco-warrior George Monbiot hailing this breakthrough in the battle against carbon. What a way to start the day.
Still, only the day before yesterday, I was admiring these and these in the garden. They'll be back when the sun comes out. And fun will no doubt return.
