Especially if there were palm trees and white sand on this Island.

George Michael's on tomorrow don't miss it.
Do you think Kirstie's a better host than Sue Lawley?
I do...
Sue Lawley's rather false sounding posh accent used to grate on me and I remember when she accidentally asked Jim from Neighbours if his buttocks smelled when she was standing in for Wogan...
anyway! Enough of this nonsense!
I was just passing by and thought I would say hello... your bloggosity caught my senses...
come by mine if you like:

say hi if you do!
All the best...

Gledwood, hello! I do not warm to Sue Lawley. I think she is likely a nasty type. A friend of mine was on Nationwide once and he said so, so it must be true.

Hello!!! I am interviewing Geoff Hoon at 1:30 today at Downing Street.

I will be asking him questions about his role as City Minister and Chief Whip, what Labour's plans for London are (business, Finance, Crossrail) etc.

If you have any questions (sensible ones) please post them on my blog and I will ask them for you!!

Steven Wolfram terms the inability to shortcut a program a system, or otherwise describe its behavior in a simple way, "computational irreducibility". The empirical fact is that the world of simple programs contains a great diversity of behavior, but, because of undecidability, it is impossible to predict what they will do before essentially running them. The idea demonstrates that there are occurrences where theory's predictions are effectively not possible. Wolfram states several phenomena are normally computationally irreducible.

Computational irreducibility explains observed limitations of existing mainstream science. In cases of computational irreducibility, only observation and experiment can be used. Computational irreducibility may also provide a scientific based resolution for free will.

It makes me hot when you talk like that, Lucien.
