Zuri: you'll have to come up with better nonsense than that if you want to make this a Friday thread.

You have 48 hours.

That's unfair - I can't do "nonsense".
If what I post is "nonsense", then I'm probably just being honest.

It's terrible when your history is engraved in stone.


Then blame it on my menopause:

Ah ok. Mostly economics. Tidied up because it uses the R tidyverse? Interesting.

I always thought clocks said tick-tock. If that is so, and if JagWaugh's clock is only tocking, then perhaps, Zürirollt, you have 96 hours. From whenever he set the clock going, that is.

Re: The next time someone here starts spouting nonsense

OK.

I truly don't understand how Swiss people manage to tie their shoes laces the same way as on this picture from http://www.dataseries.org/.

Especially now - when the weather (was) turning towards spring - I naturally released each of my white trainers from their winter captivity, with the vow that this year they would be tied in the above way. Just like any other Zürcher(In) that doesn't always walk around with huge butterflies on their feet.

Is there any Swiss person would will admit to knowing how to (comfortably) wear and do this I wonder.

The web-site had no statistics.

So unfortunately, I have to admit defeat.

No. As I have neither white sneakers nor can imagine that it is comfortably.
The only thing I know is that it matters in which way the rabbit goes around the tree. You either get a nice knot or a sloppy one. The nice one unties less likely.

Only wear white sneakers for work, to look presentable.
This link looks promising, maybe the web-site in question could profit.
