The joys of daytime television

Hmm, there seems to be a pattern forming in the subject of my blog entries.

To anyone else watching Countdown right now…

Is it just me, or does Carol Vorderman's dress make it look like she's been shot several times?

A mathematical query

On Deal or No Deal, if you get all the way to the end without dealing you get the option to swap your box for the last remaining box. Query is, should you?
Is it the same as the two goats and a car game show principle? (Three doors, behind two are goats, and behind one is a car. You choose a door, the gameshow host opens one of the other doors to reveal a goat. He gives you the option to change doors. In this situation you should change (assuming you want to find the car!).) Or is it slightly different somehow? Assume we have got right to the end and the banker's final offer has been rejected.

Nice date

On the first Thursday in May this year, at two minutes and three seconds after 1:00 in the morning, the time and date will be 01:02:03 04/05/06.
That won't ever happen again for 1000 [sic]* years.

Woo! I hope Mrs McN realises that this is coming up soon.

Look what happens when people give me work to do!

I really don't have that much to do – got to write another 600 words in fact, which I know isn't very much, but as it's still work I am procrastinating. I am enjoying my first summer with no exams since 1998, though. It's nice to only have a finite amount of work to do, and no revision that always makes you feel guilty for not doing enough.
But, nonetheless I have been blog quizzing…

Your Inner Child Is Happy

You see life as simple, and simple is a very good thing.

You're cheerful and upbeat, taking everything as it comes.

And you decide not to worry, even when things look bad.

You figure there's just so many great things to look forward to.

Woo! Second year running!

It was clearly the support from my blog that helped them win.

Go Oxford!

That is all.
