Watching this video, by 3:00 I started to 'feel' as if these sliding balls/oddball lodgements happen all the time. Yet in reality, they are rare.

A brilliant example of the fundamental weakness of empiricism: the inability to ever amass sufficient sample size to establish absolute proof. You never know if what you're measuring is anomalous compared to the whole of the data. For work-a-day imprecision at human scale-- rough and tumble aeronautics, nanotech, and other ramshackle endeavors-- it is superficially workable. But we so often make the error of thinking that because we can split atoms and build iPhones, our 'science' penetrates to the foundations of the universe. Not even close. We merely scrape at the crust with a garden trowel; there is an impenetrable and immense planet beneath us, and our tiny garden is a comedically insufficient sample to draw conclusions about the whole. Hubris abounds when obtuse intellectual hillbillies croak, "because science"!

The 'tang' when it impacted the (top rear?) metal of the goal cage makes you sit up. Like a rocket, alright.

Standing on top of the mountain range you can be within handshake distance of someone going the other direction. But as time passes and you each continue on your trajectory, that divide increases, too. Would that all God's people would honour the Holy Spirit who speaks in the Scriptures and ever move towards more glory to God, and less to us!

Tough to find anything quite as subjective as the Fine Arts, but some years ago, due to the influence of some younger-generation employees, I was exposed to Ambient music. While very different from most of what I've ever enjoyed before, this genre has become a staple in my listening. I especially enjoy how it stimulates the right hemisphere of the brain while not interfering with left hemisphere function. This makes it perfect for background music in a work/study/etc situation.

If you are interested, the philosophy of Ambient music, especially as originally conceived by Brian Eno, is something I found fascinating. See [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ambient_music]. Eno said, "Ambient music must be able to accommodate many levels of listening attention without enforcing one in particular; it must be as ignorable as it is interesting."

I'm no Marchand fan, but it seems to me that he was as noteworthy as McDavid on this play. Great job, Canada!
