Monday Morning

Not much to report as the unbearable heat of summer suddenly snaps into the grey and rainy autumn, in preparation for the unberable cold of winter. Fortunately, I like it grey and rainy -- it reminds me of home.

From the news today:
"And both her parents are divorced."

Both eh? What an unfortunate coincidence.

Spoonerism of the day: lame duck = dame luck (presumably some relative of lady luck?)

Also an anagram of duke calm, if you so desire.

That is all.

The "and both her parents are divorced" line might not be as vacuous as it sounds. Consider the following scenario:

A (M) m. B (F); they divorce.
C (M) m. D (F); they divorce.

A shacks up with D and they produce a child E (M) out of wedlock. (Kids, don't be alarmed: naturally no honest law-abiding A or D would do this.) Similarly, B and C produce a child F (F) out of wedlock. Now F can say quite correctly that both her parents were divorced, and E that both his parents were divorced.

[Citizenship For] Kids! Why not have fun by trying to answer the following questions?

* If E and F later marry, would it be incest where you live?

* A wants to marry B and D at the same time, and they both want to marry A at the same time. What is wrong with this?

* Why should A and C on no account be allowed to marry each other?
