I learned too little too late that the world naked bike ride rolled through Madison Wisconsin on June 18th... I had no idea we had one in Wisconsin!! Perhaps I'll have to get on board next year.

That's funny, I have a photography gig lined up for next June in Madison 😆

That reminds me, I have to buy a camera and learn about photography 🤔

Sorry 🤣

I am sure msslave would be happy to take pictures of Shiela bicycling naked in Madison.  :emot_kiss:

I would help fund it, if the ladies of KB joined in as a group. I would even buy the good bottled water for it.

Recent posts in the "Leave your hat on" topic sent me to re-visit Jeff Beck's "Hi Ho Silver Lining" with its mention of a lady going down a bumpy hillside in a hippie hat (what else?)

And mention of surfers in another topic sent me to a 4-CD compilation I have of vintage surf music (Cowabunga! The Surf Box)

So there I was, listening to a succession of old favorites, when the Bel-Airs' "Mr. Moto" began playing. Not for the first time, I wondered who Mr. Moto might have been, and whether it had anything to do with Japan. So I decided to do a little research and discovered that there are novels and movies about a secret agent of that name:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mr._Moto

Yet another gap in my knowledge. A used copy of The Cradle of Erotica showed up in my mail box yesterday, but I think I'll read some of Marquand's Mr. Moto novels first. I found six of them in my ebook archive, downloaded from Usenet at least twenty years ago. Being a hoarder does have its advantages.  :roll:

If Moses was the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, then he was the daughter of Pharaoh’s son.

Has anyone come across this word puzzle, or a variation? I' found it today, in Flora Annie Steel's autobiography. Around 1880 she's visiting Rome. She mentions some annoying fellow-tourists, and adds:

Quote
But above all irritations was that caused by an American lady who failed to grip the common quip, “If Moses was the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, then he was the daughter of Pharaoh’s son”. We tried commas, semi-colons, colons, full stops in the attempt to make her see. Finally, with distinct scorn, she said, “Of course I have seen that from the beginning, but I don’t think that view is borne out by Scripture; besides, it spoils the whole beauty of the story.”

It took me several minutes to "grip the common quip", so I sympathize with the American lady.

TIL NASA only uses Pi with 15 decimal places. Not because it is entirely accurate, but their computers can’t handle more without a serious upgrade. Something about IEEE754 64-bit floating point.

Today I learnt the origin of the word "dope".

In a book written in 1929, the author is describing a trek she made with her husband through the lower Himalayas. She goes out of her way to visit a famous cave, and is disappointed by what she finds. She muses about the religious fervor of the pilgrims who go there in their thousands, many of them dying along the way.

Quote
Yet [the cave's] very triviality impressed one. Thousands, nay, millions of humanity, beset by the desire for redemption which is so curious a passion in the race, have braved death through ice, snow, avalanches, to reach it. Hundreds of them lose their lives on the road every year, for each pilgrim discards every stitch of clothing at Shisha Nag and continues the journey, naked, drugged by opium or Indian hemp. I have been told that scarcely one reached the cave without some form of dope.

Partridge's Dictionary of Historical Slang informs me that "dope", used in the meaning of "drug", is US slang, dating back to the 1890s. It first had the meaning of "any thick lubricant or absorbent", and the word comes from the Dutch "doopen", to dip.

Partridge doesn't explain how "dope" came to mean "fool" but I'm guessing the idea was "someone who acts as if drugged".

I remember reading that a mathematical savant (Daniel Tammet?) could see pi as a beautiful landscape unfolding before his mind's eye. That would suggest that there's some kind of pattern in the endless string of digits.

Pi is completely irrational, it never ends and It does have patterns but none that repeat. https://www.ncl.ac.uk/press/articles/archive/2016/03/pimightlookrandombutitsfullhiddenpatterns/
