Life is, indeed, skittles and beer

Tom Lehrer is 80 today. Which is nice, since when I saw references to him on other blogs I assumed he’d died. Sheer genius.

I’m entertained by this comment from CT:

The world really needs more like him – brilliant math teachers who are brilliant parodists and public intellectuals on the side.

Yes, this is precisely what the world needs more of. Relatedly, Dinesh D’souza is an arse.

    Hah. And when the time comes, how many people around the world will mark Dinesh D'souza's 80th birthday with celebratory readings of his best articles?

    Oh dear! You and Teabag are beginning to resemble a 'Treckies' club. Too, too embarrassing! Even so I am grateful for your introduction to Mr. d' Souza's blog which instantly went on my 'Favourites' list.
