  1. Every man is a damn fool at least five minutes every day. This is a judgement based on experience, it´s a rule and more than a rule, it´s an axiom. How stressful for the pope to work against for maintaining inerrableness every single day.

    I'm watching the Spain vs Switzerland World Cup game while reading your statement, Michael. And - voila! - after failing for 95% of the game so far, Switzerland just scored the sensational leading goal. Nice!

    Interestingly enough, that "little bit that's good" immediately lowered the failure percentage.
