One Out - All Out in Synchonised Gay Hospitals

Hay has an endearing habit of naming all manner of things with her own vernacular. Regulars may already have heard of the Bosnia hat - the lower one of my two winter hats - although that one hasn't had much of an airing this year.

She calls my beanie the "One Out - All Out" hat, the sartorial elegance and efficacy of which is enhanced by the wearing of a donkey jacket along with standing next to a burning brazier while brandishing a placard calling for the destruction of Tory scum.

A Catholic Filipino boxer has a go at gay people and Russia categorically denies bombing a hospital in Syria. Are any of us the least bit surprised?

Ref the boxer - he said animals don't exhibit homosexual behaviour, which makes gay humans worse than animals. Well, he's factually wrong (what a surprise that a religious person is mistaken). Here's a list, and it includes our nearest relatives - but there again, he'll probably deny evolution too.

Someone put a synchronised swimming video on Facebook yesterday and the accompanying music was Led Zeppelin's Stairway to Heaven. I wonder why it is that a group of humans engaging in some synchronous activity, whether it be swimming, ballet or Irish dancing stirs our souls so much? The whole is very much greater than the sum of the parts.
