Dead Calm

Visible to anyone in the world

For several hours there has been almost no wind in my garden, the wind speed is effectively 0 km/h.

I think this must be quite unusual, although the Hairy Ball Theorem tells us that there must always be a point on the earth where the wind isn't blowing at any given moment.

Probability question

Visible to anyone in the world

Suppose three different numbers are chosen independently at random. What is the probability that the third lies between the first two?

Not done one of these for a while.

“I’m still determined to become chief journalist on the Canine Times” said Tom doggedly.

Pretty Moth

Visible to anyone in the world

This rather pretty insect perched on my mint is a Brimstone moth, one of the Geometridae, so-called because their caterpillars are inchworms that progress by 'looping'. The animal anchors its rear legs, stretches the front part of its body forward, obtains a grip with its front legs and pulls the back of its body up behind it.

Apparently they've found a way to make explosives from poo. I call it bang out of ordure.

We often hear the phrase, “The fur flew”. Would that be hairo-o-dynamics?
