We all are. What's wrong with you?

I don't know. I'll have to wait until the Observer article "I'm not fascinated by power couples: what is wrong with me?" to find out.

I thought it was 3, as in triplets.

In the meantime why not try out some luxury PPE now that Covid face masks are so last spring?

A 'power couple' sounds like one of those electricity devices I could never get to work in physics at school.

If it moves, it's biology.

If it stinks, it's chemistry.

If it doesn't work, it's physics.

Nailed, sir.

'Fume Cupboard' - never was a facility better named.

Isn't twelve supposed to be a magic number? 12 months to a year, 2x 12 hours to a day, 12 disciples of Jesus? And the English still have 12 inches to a foot.

Three is the magic number.

12 has a lot of factors in its favour.

Seven is another magical number.
