Good things May 18

Cheer up! The Government (read: Tony Blair) may be increasingly psychotic, America may fancy nuking I-ran and Big Brother 7 may start tonight, but I have some more positive miscellanies to share – in addition to the aforementioned Sudoku thing (which is on June 7th, by the way).

• I have started learning Mandarin:

我是 Will

(nod, and apologies if I have written something inadvertently offensive)

• I have fallen for the TV advertising and switched from Morrisons trifles to Activia yoghurts – they contain Bifidus digestivum and that’s Latin so it must be good for you.

Doctor Who is doing grandly in the viewing figures – even better than last year!

• I am now an administrator on the English Wikipedia.

    To the best of my knowledge, because stomach acid kills just about everything (including latin microbes), you’d have to drink pints and pints of yoghurt for it to make a difference to your “balance”.

    I was under the impression that the microbes in these yoghurts outcompete and eventual kill all the other good microbe strains in your tum, and so are actually a pretty bad thing. Which ever one of us is right you should lay off them then.

    Aw, come on now, the adverts say they’re good for you! And they really do reduce digestive discomfort.

    My multiobiotic vitamin supplements have these good bacteria in too.
