Slacking, work, World Cup…

Apologies for the paucity of posts – until that Golden Day when slackers are given the respect they deserve, life and work sometimes intrude on one’s Resistentialism. And furthermore, one could quite safely gamble on this relative silence continuing until July 9 or so, when the World Cup ends (although there is another – quite likely – alternative: that gets completely subsumed by football posts!).

For the historical record, and hopefully to demonstrate the supreme powers that higher level Resistentialists possess, here is a document of the Semi-Finalists and winner of the 2006 World Cup:

Semi-finals: Argentina, Netherlands, Brazil, France

Final: Netherlands vs Argentina

Winner: Netherlands

Top-scorer: Ruud van Nistelrooy

I’d like to say England will win, but Argentina beat them in the QuarterFinals (I think on penalties, but my crystal ball is a bit cloudy on this issue).
