What is one to say about June? The time of perfect young summer, the fulfilment of the promise of the earlier months, and with as yet no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade.

A swarm of bees in June
Is worth a silver spoon;
A swarm of bees in July
Is not worth a fly.

    I really need this at this time. Completely exhausted after coming back from the study workshops of Statistics! :(

    @Bubbly, well, you should learn at last that there are much worse things in the world than statistics. E.g. Polish tongue twisters. ;)

    @Bubbly, I am sure when you learn how pronounce it you will be full of energy again. ;)

    @Xanthippe Life seems so easy as compared to statistics study workshops. ;) I hate when a teacher doesn't understand that they shouldn't speak statistical language whilst explaining standard deviation and anova.

    @Bubbly, poor you. :) That's life. But I am suffering too. ;) I haven't catch the kangaroo with a bag but the kangaroo has caught me with a bag.

    @Xanthippe nice idea. We will play the kangaroo's game during tomorrow's workshop. ;)

    @Xanthippe what is the relationship between a kangaroo and statistics? I am still thinking...LOL

    @Xanthippe I wish my mind runs like a kangaroo when it comes to understand the t and z tests. :(
  • XanthippeXanthippe Posts: 1,723 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @Bubbly, the kangaroo's mind is like a razor: you would be the best. ;)

    @Xanthippe I was thinking to replace my mind with kangaroo's but there was no such experiment done by the surgeons so far. :)

    @Bubbly, we are reaching the peak of silliness. Fortunately, I have a different nickname here. :D
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 30,007 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @Xanthippe sometimes this 'non-sense' makes a lot of sense. ;) I always enjoy talking to you about silliness as you make some sense out of it. :)
  • XanthippeXanthippe Posts: 1,723 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @Bubbly, as you like Shakespeare ;) :

    O [the kangaroo's] hard condition,
    Twin-born with greatness, subject to the breath
    Of every fool, whose sense no more can feel
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 30,007 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @Xanthippe I thought that it was only you and me. But, Shakespeare was also like us who talked about silliness in his plays. Welcome to the silliness gang! ;)
  • XanthippeXanthippe Posts: 1,723 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @Bubbly, we are in good company. :) This is a comfort. :)

    @Xanthippe I am still thinking about the silly pranks that mostly dramatists used in their plays.
