Merry Christmas

I bet Queen Elizabeth II is thinking, “There we go again, another Annus horribilis in the offing when this famed Anus abominabilis gets to deliver a message on Channel 4.”

Well, O.K. I gave up my mind reading powers a while back. That’s what I am thinking actually. I’ve been on my best behavior to try to remain sane for as long as possible. So I won’t even bother with wishing for peace on earth this year.

But some chuckles always helps. There is a short piece I’ve been looking at on Christmas Eve each year for a little over a decade now. I am sure most of you have seen it already. But just in case, here is Santa Clause, An Engineering Perspective.

And for those who have a hard time telling a reindeer from a moose,( or can see either from your house) here is the latest tragic news from up north.

Merry Christmas to one and all.

Hi H,
I was an avid reader of your blog up through the break and came back tonight after many months of not checking in.

I am glad to see you posting again and hope this is tied to a good period for you.

I am a professor and often teach courses on Iran and religion and I very much enjoy your writing and musing. i used to send students to your blog.

I see that the posts that described the circumstances leading up to your break from blogging in down. A clean slate?

You haven't taken into account the fact that a couple of countries outside your sphere (one hates Iran with a royal hate, and the other is its puppet) have very intention of de-stabilaizing Iran. And to bring it down. That is a very volatile mix.
