A random math problem has been distracting me occasionally for a week or so.  This morning I woke up knowing the answer.

One lunar month is equal to exactly 167/10 + 349/29 days.

Accurate to within a minute or so in a thousand years. Of course this assumes that the ratio of lunar months to days remains constant.  In the long-ish run (thousands of years) it does, but in the very short run (within a single year) it fluctuates with the time of year and precession of the apsides, and in the very long run (tens of millions of years) it lengthens as Earth's tides gradually subtract rotational inertia from the planet's spin and add it to the moon's orbit.

So, as with everything, this is an approximation.  But it's a pretty good approximation for the next several thousand years.

Really?  What station?  What country even?  And did they come up with the same fraction sum?

I'd been thinking about how to make gearing that a clock could use.  The ratio of 25101 days to 850 lunar months is fairly well known (to the vanishingly small number of people who actually care) but 2789 is a prime factor of 25101 and it's really hard to cut a gear with 2789 teeth. 

So I'd been thinking, since gears with more than 360 teeth are impractical, about how to express it using numbers smaller than 360.

I’ll tell you what’s ferocious. Freddie’s comeback to Sid calling him “Freddie Platinum” when they were recording down the hall from each other at London’s Wessex Studios (Queen for News of the World, Pistols for Bollocks).

Sid Vicious made the mistake one day of bursting into Queen’s control room and antagonizing their frontman. “Have you succeeded in bringing ballet to the masses, then?” he sneered. “Oh, yes, Simon Ferocious,” Mercury replied. “We’re trying our best, dear.”

Then, according to Queen biographer Daniel Nester, Freddie rose from his chair and began to playfully flick the safety pins displayed on the front of Sid’s leather jacket. “Tell me,” he asked, “did you arrange these pins just so?” When Sid stepped forward in an attempt to intimidate Freddie, the singer simply pushed him backwards and inquired, “What are you going to do about it?” Sid immediately backed down.

A sign of maturity; recognizing a situation in which a fight is motivated solely by ego, that ego is not worth fighting over, and that fighting will accomplish nothing beneficial. Kudos to Mercury for not going hyperbolic over Sid's intrusion.  Kudos to Sid for not rising to Mercury's blatant if playful baiting.  Kudos to both for de-escalating.

Given the people involved, I wonder whether Mercury was actually making fun of Sid, or just flirting with him.  Or, embracing his fundamental and well-known ambiguity, both.

As I was pondering the death of the first President I voted for, I was curious about the state of former Presidents who lived past their dates in office.

In the 51 years I have lived on this planet, there was one period of time where there was a total of zero former presidents of the US who were still living. In fact, the US went from two former living presidents to none in the space of 28 days prior to that.

Over 564 days, the only man who knew the pressure of being President was the then-current office holder. The streak ended when he stepped into the helicopter on the White House lawn and was whisked off to Yorba Linda, California as the first president to resign from office.

There is a distinct irony in the fact that there were no former presidents around during what could be argued as the worst preiod of time in the history of the office.

With the passing of GHWB this week, I came across something that I found very odd.

Currently, there are four former POTUSes still living (I'll let you the reader figure out who they are). Did you know that there have been only six times in US history (outside of President Washington) where there have been no living former presidents?

John Adams was the first, as Washington died before he left office. There wasn't another until Ulysses Grant's term, where Andrew Johnson passed before Grant left office - and all other presidents had died by that time. Grover Cleveland saw this happen during his second term in the White House (aside: he is considered both the 22nd and 24th President, as he was the only one to serve non-consecutive terms in office). Next was Teddy Roosevelt, who became President on the death of William McKinley. Before leaving office, all of his living predecessors in the job had passed on. Herbert Hoover was next, as his predecessor Calvin Coolidge had passed away and all the other presidents between Roosevelt and Warren Harding (who had died in office) were also dead.

However, the longest (and now most recent) period where there were no living former presidents was from January 23, 1973 to August 9, 1974. This time frame (from the date of Lyndon Johnson's death to Nixon's resignation) was the longest that the USA went without a former living president.

Cats seem to have a way of behaving when they know they've been rumbled and have given up but don't want to admit it.

My littlest often likes to steal crisp packets. He growls like a bastard at anyone trying to take it off him, but I'm pretty good at catching him. Once I got a hand on him, but failed to actually catch him - I hadn't got his scruff. He could have easily got away. But he just stayed there, growling at me, until I took the packet out of his mouth. It's like he knew he wasn't going to win this one but refused to give up his pride by not growling.

When the second person is ejecting him, the cat seems to do that. Slight swerve away from the graspy hands, but really, definitely could have got away from her and didn't.

That's weird... Not how I read the above at all.

Sid tried to rip the piss out of Freddie.
Freddie retaliated and expanded.
Sid threatened physicality.
Freddie stood up to him and gave him a shove (And verbal warning)
Sid backed off cos he was at heart a scared wee boy playing at being a rebel cos all his mates were doing so.

I think they were.  Apparently the guy found hungry kitten wandering in the street on a trip and brought the little guy back to his hotel room to try to get something to eat.  Didn't really plan to have a cat around, so no actual cat food.  Scrambling an egg is nontoxic for cats and used food he had on hand.

Of course this meant kitteh had to wait, while s/he could smell food cooking, as the guy scrambled the egg, which meant getting steadily more excited.  Hungry kitten does not like waiting.

Hoo boy. That made me want to jump up and feed the kitten myself. That must be the toxoplasmosis talking.
