Huge thanks to everyone who liked our link last week, unfortunately we were not given the hundred grand. Fortunately I’m quite accustomed to not being given a hundred grand – it happens to me almost daily – so the feeling is not alien to me. I guess with 750 other entries the odds of winning must have been like, one in a million. Probably. I’m not good with complicated statistical equations. Anyway, thanks.
Next week: We delve deeply into the controversial subject of Nietzsche’s syphilis.
