quote of the day: "Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious"

maths joke
A mathematician went insane and believed that he was the differentiation operator. His friends had him placed in a mental hospital until he got better. All day he would go around frightening the other patients by staring at them and saying "I differentiate you!"

One day he met a new patient; and true to form he stared at him and said "I differentiate you!", but for once, his victim's expression didn't change. Surprised, the mathematician marshalled his energies, stared fiercely at the new patient and said loudly "I differentiate you!", but still the other man had no reaction. Finally, in frustration, the mathematician screamed out "I DIFFERENTIATE YOU!"

The new patient calmly looked up and said, "You can differentiate me all you like: I'm e to the x."

For comparison, last year's results. An advantage of posting the results here is you can view them a year later!


  1. Kathy Southgate's performance was outstanding, what a brilliant run from a Veteran Athlete!!

    Well done the Speedy Geese - Yay!!

    Well done the Vetro Metro's Yay!!!!

    Well done everyone, it is such a fun event (although it doesn't feel so fun at the time), bring on the fun run in 2007....Ewen should be raring to go by then :o)

  2. The 2007 5k walk is tempting.

    Some great runs in the 10k. Poor old Kathy did well considering No.1 son dragged her and Anne out for a 60k bike ride on Saturday.

    I think the only W50 distance record which will survive this season will be the steeplechase.
