We pay £20 million for the Pope's visit

The Pope is going to visit the UK and charge us 20 million pounds in order to tell us that
  • the British equality legislation is running contrary to "natural law", and that
  • it creates "unjust limitations on the freedom of religious communities to act in accordance with their beliefs".
The National Secular Society is right to not want to welcome the Pope to the UK.

If Mr Ratzinger wanted to act as a Christian, he should, now, cancel his visit to the UK and tell the UK to give the 20 million pounds to the poor. But, surely, he won't: For him, it is more important to promote his organization (as it was for Mother Teresa) than help people.

But, hang on a minute... Remember how, in the summer of 2008, the Pope's visit to Sydney resulted in an increase in business for the city's brothels, strip clubs and prostitutes? Perhaps the UK economy could benefit from the sex drive of the Pope's devotees. Well, it would take an awful lot of visits to London's brothels to make up for the 20 million pounds tax payers will have to pay, but you never know...


  1. We should tell the pope to fuck off - he is a wanker and he represents a pile of peadophile wankers

  2. The USA should have nuked the City of London while the pope was there, taking him out and the banking terrorists all at the same time.



What measure theory is about

It's about counting, but when things get too large.
Put otherwise, it's about addition of positive numbers, but when these numbers are far too many.

The principle of dynamic programming

max_{x,y} [f(x) + g(x,y)] = max_x [f(x) + max_y g(x,y)]
