The young generation (14/01/18 18:46:30)
    Like old men throughout the ages I have some scepticism towards the younger generation. I know there are some fools (like in my generation, and those previous - just read some history).

    This evening - some 19:00 - three 10-year-old boys were at my door, asking me whether I would participate in a maths survey. So I was given three multiplications. Embarrassingly enough I did not make it exactly - which has always served for my purposes.

    Anyway - the fact that some schoolboys venture into this (and I think there is no reward for guessing that some father somewhere gave them the idea and support) makes me revise my thinking. It might be that some of the young generation are actually better than mine. Heartening. I love it. It's worthy of some celebration of sorts.
