Yesterday I was telling you about how us guys in the rail yard were discussing fishing.

And then Jim McFee wanted to look in the red book because he remembered that fishing was not always about fishing. He said that the "Shallows" were sometimes a good place to just sit and watch the dragon flies, the flowers, the minnows and then he went on a bit.

So we discussed at length the beauty of just enjoying a day of fishing; with or without fish.

And one thing lead to another and before you knew it we had looked at several nice scenes of nature.

Then we looked at how math can sometimes describe nature.

Then there was this Italian guy who wanted to figure out why rabbits multiplied so fast but he never figured out why, he only figured out how to plan for them.

Which isn't a bad thing.

Except that apparently he did not know the story about Gunf from the Ukraine.

And then, of course, Bogdan had to bring in a page he ripped out of an encyclopedia (which is not really a smart thing to do because it will never go back into the encyclopedia at the right place and eventually it will get lost, torn, crumpled or used for a mat under a coffee cup).

So without farther ado I show you what Bogdan brought in about the Italian mathematician.
