Bravo to Jason Fout who, in order to satisfy my need to procrastinate constantly, has started a week-long Distractionfest. I must say, his efforts to find diverting stories are so impressive I’m wondering if he has distracted himself more than me. Perhaps he sees it as vocational.
It turns out I’ve been laid up in bed with a cold so it’s not even like I’ve been doing any work to need distracting from. But I have been much comforted by the pictures of Rudolf Carnap’s parents.
