I Learned Something Mathematically New Today

So besides sitting today and hating the heat because of the amount of hideous creatures that seem to rise from nowhere and annoy/scare me, I have done something useful. Well I say done something useful, more of that I've gained a bit of knowledge - thanks to the BBC Magazine.

So, when I was at school we learned our timetables upto the 12's, so 12x12 is always stuck vividly in my head as 144, because that was the highest we ever got up to, anything more and we'd just use a calculator - after all, that's their purpose, to dumb us... [read more]

Moan About... TV Licensing

Just a quick grumble... now to some this may come as a bit of a surprise, but I do actually have a TV License - well The Mother pays for it, so we're covered - even though I do think it is a bit of a stupid idea (especially now we're in the digital age of TV [Don't pay TV License, then why not block the BBC channels?

They have decided to spend a... [read more]

Pectus Excavatum Post-Op

It's now been two and a half weeks since I finally had the bar in my chest removed and I thought I may aswell give everyone an update as to how everything's going.

The cuts at the moment are still tender on both sides, the right-hand side isn't too bad and the swelling has gone down on it a lot, however the left-hand side is still fairly swollen and quite painful to touch or when my arm rubs against it. This pain is quite annoying too because I like to sleep on the left-hand side of my body (I had a... [read more]
