  1. I grow my own vegetables for about five months of the year really, so my food is cheap, apart from the lentils. Where do they come from? Is there a lentil bush? Also, pearl barley! What is that? Does it come out of a machine? We would like to know. This is a more interesting post than the usual ones about toilets. What is the truth? There’s just a point of view and mental formations. Slip, sliding away.

  2. Noun 1. fissiparity – reproduction of some multicellular organisms by division, as in the case of some starfish
    agamogenesis, asexual reproduction – reproduction without the fusion of gametes
    2. fissiparity – the tendency to break into parts; “the fissiparity of religious sects”
    divisibility – the quality of being divisible; the capacity to be divided into parts or divided among a number of persons

  3. I’ve enjoyed his various TV series. You know he went to the same school as Albert? His current cellmate is the brilliant Hirsi Ali.

    Thanks to O-level Latin, I was able to work out fissiparity from its components. Nice word.

    Tiny countries I have visited include New Sourh Caledonia, and The UnHeard Of And McDonald Islands.

  4. PS A few years back, there was almost fission of the UnHeard and the McDonalds, after political unrest over the death of Ralwin.
