Dearest Science Peeps Of Puissance & Awe,

How are ewe today ?...Watch the Grand Prix today ? well done Hamilton !! though, I’m actually a Ferrari fan so I’m a Spanish sheep at the moment (Alonso  ::)). Anyway, I enjoyed this chat...we should do it again some time. Get your people to contact mine and we’ll do lunch !


In the mean time will ewe please take a look at this Judge.





A Judge For Ewe To Look At


Did ewe know that (this is a fact) that Judges are  more likely to make a favourable decision after a meal break  ?   Nope...me neither !

Why’s that then ?...Why are judges more likely to make a favourable decision after a meal break ?


If ewe let me know..I will then know......and I can tell others and they will think I am klevur !


Ta

Hugs and shmishes

Favourable to whom? The prosecution or the defence? I suppose it would depend on who treated him to lunch and whether it was a lousy Big Mac or a 6 course silver service at the Dorchester, Savoy or some such gastronomic emporium avec le étoile au Michelin.
