    It does, Steve - because it sure made me chuckle. I know how it must all sound to you in the States - I think I must appear like a right whiner, considering ... You've been in a way worse situation for months now. @Briar Karen, thank you so much, and I think you are absolutely right; I'll keep...

    Today was the most peculiar experience ... not exactly new, but in the light of current developments, decidedly schizophrenic. First and foremost, I really had a blast shooting today - so much so that I'm almost embarrassed by the huge number of images I really wish to share. I hope you're not...

    1^3+5^3+3^3=153, making 153 a "3-narcissistic" number, i.e. it is self-expressable by the sum of the cubes (hence "3-") of its digits. I love these expressive characterisations for simple mathematical facts :) M.

    3/4-4/4-3/4-4/4 ... - that's trivial 😜 (No, of course it isn't ... at least not for your feet.) I think the name of the group is a bit of a give-away, though (you may know "Valium" better ...). M.

    He's a bit like an urban Jack Johnson, though not as consistent. He's also a truely nice guy who initiates and supports social projects. He was quite a find, though I have yet to listen to an album I'd actually want to own in its entirety. Luckily, he's very generous with sharing his songs...

    Just for the record: This is the day when Switzerland officially declared itself a global hotspot of the pandemic. We're heading for the chasm now - and there's no telling how deep it'll turn out to be. I'll keep going out to shoot as long as I judge it feasible, but it may become increasingly...

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunbar%27s_number 148 is said to be the theoretical upper limit of Dunbar's number ... That's actually very interesting for me personally - because it's also about the number of people I have to keep track of professionally (around 150, give or take a few) ... M.

    Well, I'm certainly not into Halloween (it's not part of a Central European tradition, and what they've imported is a travesty of a travesty ...), but this shot makes it almost worthwhile :) I had a blast during my two outings today.

    1!+4!+5!=145 (i.e. 1+1*2*3*4+1*2*3*4*5=1+24+120=145) This property makes 145 the first of only two non-trivial "factorions" in base 10 (and the only one with unique digits). Once more: Neat :) And this is quirky enough to warrant a listen ... ;) M.
