Some Irish music:

(Note: "Black and tans" were British recruits to the UK-controlled Irish police during the Anglo-Irish War, most of them ex-soldiers.)




The traditional melody for this next one is the same as the last one (or to be more precise,
vice versa, as this song is older) but this version is by now quite well-known as well:



(Or at least Irish-inspired. I think of this more as a dance track than something to listen to:)

Does satisfaction at all arithmetical sets of a second-order arithmetic formula with no bound predicate variables imply its satisfaction?

The answer is apparently "No." (Unless you understood the question, don't bother clicking through. Maybe not even then.)

From the BoardGameGeek comments on a recently announced game:

Fo_95
I played Rebirth at a playtesting event in Malta. The publisher brought a prototype and asked if we would like to play. The art was not finished but what I saw was really beautiful. The game has a certain feel-good factor to it. I found it very easy to learn and starts off quite relaxed but then ramped up to tense moments at the end. I really enjoyed it. I can't wait to see the end product and to play again ^^

santacruzsteve
Rating this a "1" to offset the publisher's rating of a "10". (I checked the guy out). They are just trying to
generate hype to increase sales. I guess this is normal, but it's not a realistic rating of the actual game.

Dopeski
Rating this a "10" to offset some random dude's rating of a "1". (I checked the guy out). They are just trying
to generate hate to decrease sales. I guess this is normal, but it's not a realistic rating of the actual game.

svinepelz
Rating it a 10 to offset the 1 that was supposed to offset the 10 that
was supposed to offset the 1 that was supposed to offset the 10.

biasedisland
I checked the guy out, too. Rating it a 10 to offset the 1 that was supposed to offset the 10 that
was supposed to offset the 1 that was supposed to offset the 10 that was supposed to offset the 1.
[Ed.: Chad gadya, chad gadya!]

jmsmith2434
Rating this a "5" to offset some random dude's rating of a "6". (I checked the guy out). They are just trying
to generate apathy to steady sales. I guess this is normal, but it's not a realistic rating of the actual game.

[At this point, santacruzsteve adds the following to his above comment:]
EDIT: you "10" guys are really funny! It's awesome! I guess your manager at your company told you guys to let me have it!

cosomus
Checked the guy out, who checked the "10" out, who checked the "1" out and giving it a rock solid 5
so it stays in the middle, TILL new information are shared, like overall design, gameplay and story.

Speckbutler
I checked out the guy rating it a 5. Ended up confused and found nothing. Rated it a 6 by accident.

ropearoni4
[Ed.: Including this because I'm pretty sure he's confidently spouting nonsense.]
Laughing at the offsets of the 1 and 10s. The algorithm used will not take the 1 or 10s into consideration.
It usually lops off the top and bottom for the ranking. It will help the ratings but not bgg rank much.
It's knizia [Ed.: The designer's surname], should be a good time at the table.

Lighthorse6
Rating this a 5 to offset some other dude’s rating of 5. Have no idea about the game though…

tawiiams
Rating this a 10 because October is my favorite month.
