Hume Castle. Not really a castle – really just a “folly” but a good marker on the horizon in the area east of Kelso. The landscape here can be slightly featureless but is very atmospheric.
This is NOT a “picture of the day” project. Nor is it a “resolution”. I did plan, however, to try and upload photos I take to act as some kind of journal – principally for myself.
After spending most of the day in the office at Cockenzie and walking Badger dog in semi-dark amidst a deluge – I had resigned myself to no image for today.
Then I realised… I spend vast amounts of time at a desk and/or a PC and it should be recorded, too.
So here – my environment for today!
And the view from Longniddry Bents earlier in the day.
OK – a change of focus. No politics.
Let’s encourage some interest in Mathematics – watch this Numberphile video to see the (apparently divergent) series in the title is equivalent to -1/12
Let me make it clear – sum the infinite series of Natural numbers ( 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + … and never stop) and the approximation value which results is -1/12
A negative fraction from an infinite sum of positive numbers.
There are many videos discussing this – and versions with more complex applications of Riemann’s functions to find the same result.
Do not be Scottish and think humility or modesty are ever rewarded. They won’t be!
Make a bloody noise about everything you do – seems the smarter option.
Hasta la vista asap 2017.
Least of all any Religion.
No matter how loving, caring, empathic or forgiving it’s foundation – allow men (and it is usually men) a handful of years to organise and it will end up a murderous, inflexible, vitriolic and jealous plot of poisoned weeds.
I hope their gods do not forgive them. Any of them.
