Promises, promises!

Soos die miskruier vir die trekker gesê het.

Many a true word …

… spoken inadvertently!

Indeed, NambaWhan has never been found in court of law!

Maybe tweeter Matshidiso Madia should get a proof reader?

haha

The art of saying nothing.

say-nothing

Die land is op hete kole om the hoor wanneer ons uiteindelik van NambaWhan kan afskeid neem.

Ou Squirrel (in die mirrel) RammmetjiePhosa is in “konstruktiewe samesprekings” met NambaWhan.

Hier is sommige van Squirrel se uuilatings:

… Both President Zuma and myself are aware that our people want and deserve closure …

en

“… The constructive process we have embarked on offers the greatest opportunity to conclude this matter without discord and division …”

en

“… I am certain that the process we have now embarked on will achieve an outcome that not only addresses these concerns, but also unites our people around the tasks that all of us must necessarily undertake to build our country …”

en

“… We will be able to communicate further on President Zuma’s position as President of the Republic once we have finalised all pertinent matters …”

en

“… The discussions were constructive and lay the basis for a speedy resolution of the matter in the interests of the country and its people …”

Daar het jy dit – wat “dit” ook al mag wees.

Die “ware” betekenis …

Hieronder is vandag se inAccuweather weervoorspelling vir ons omgewing soos gesien op my Saamsing selfoon..

Na jare se waarneming was dit tot onlangs vir my onmoontlik om ‘n verband te vind tussen die verwagte persentasie reën en die reën wat werklik uitgesak het.

Maar nou het die lig vir my opgegaan. Daardie % teken is nie ‘n persentasie nie, néé, dit dui aan die aantal druppels reën wat gaan val.

Met vandag se voorspelling van 7% reën, met geen reënwolk in sig nie, is dit dus redelik om te verwag dat sewe druppels sal val.

Hou vir ons duim vas.

En daardie Mary Poppins sambreeltjie is verdere bevestiging dat die voorspellings bloot fantasie is!

Via Appia

No, not the Via Appia but the Via Formica and it does not lead to Rome, it’s just a local ant highway.

The ants remove obstacles so they can travel more efficiently.

Reflections on Antimatter

Why does this photograph remind me of Paul Dirac?

gulls

… for every particle there exists a corresponding antiparticle, exactly matching the particle but with opposite charge … See here

That which we do not remember

kentridge

William Kentridge

That which we do not remember

gedane sake het geen keer,
woorde eens geuiter
keer nimmer weer.

herinnering aan sondes begaan
bly ons by
en sal nooit vergaan.

maar die alledaagse sleur
van sorg en wroeg
vir ons daaglikse brood
is gou vergete
en laat geen spoor.

The evil that men do lives after them,
The good is oft interred with their bones.
William Shakespeare: Julius Caesar

Daar is ‘n besondere uitstalling van William Kentridge getitleld “That which we do not remember” by die Goodman Galery in Woodstock, Kaapstad. ‘n “must see“!
