Back in the old days, when things made sense, you could buy Chicken McNuggets in boxes of 6, 9, and 201. So if you were really hungry, you could buy, for example, 30: two boxes of 9 and two boxes of 6. If you weren’t that hungry you’re a bit scuppered; there’s no combination of 6, 9, and 20 which adds up to, say, 14. What if you were spectacularly hungry, but also wanted to annoy the McDonalds people? What’s the largest order of Chicken McNuggets which they could not fulfil?
Best to not talk about politics right now. It was bad two years ago and it’s worse now. We’re currently in the teeth of Brexit. I thought this below from Jon Worth was a useful summary of what the next steps are, but this is no long-term thing; this shows what might happen in the next few days, which is as far out as can be planned. I have no idea what I’ll be thinking when writing my birthday post next year. I’m pretty worried.

Right, back to work. I’d rather be planning a D&D campaign, but putting together a group to do that is harder than it looks.
- yes, yes, now you can get four in a Happy Meal, but that’s just daft. Who only wants four chicken nuggets? ↩
