First day without Red Bull in over a week. Been completely knackered, been a chore to lift my body even if my mind still has been alive enough to scrape some research stuff. May end up making another journal and shunting it to there for the meantime, will have to see. More things are firing my brain in general, and the high-weirdness trip I've been on is finally ending. The scary thing is the lack of psychedelics. Give it a month or so and I'll find myself reinforcing my creativity the fun way once more.

Have been firing a crash-course in Mornington Crescent into my eardrums and eyeballs. Now all I need is an online game to join to see how bad I am. It astounds me that I have not encountered the game earlier. Bah, bah I say!

It should not be this hard to keep my eyes open. Thus, as it has gone one in the morning, I'm off to bed.

Are we starting with just the simple game, or would you like to propose a variation to begin with?

Since the weekend routes do not apply, that means the Bayes Interpretation of 1943 is in force. You will of course remember the disagreements over this interpretation that started some years earlier. A heated argument lead to one of the parties at Bayes' table storming off in disgust and entreating his leader, a fellow politician, to find some supporters of his particular reading of the rules. Needless to say, many natives of Poland did not grasp the subleties of inverting Tooting Bec in order to make an anticlockwise attempt at Frampton's Gambit to claim Oxford Circus and decline the south of the river by twenty-three degrees Farenheit, causing mass chaos as both the Slippery Escalator rule and the Late Bus adjudication come into force, and the rest is left to the annals of history.

Given that rather long and rambling introduction to the Interpretation, I'm going to call a left-handed flip and demonstrate ably that scoring given wild stations below the diagonal is the equivalent of scoring all possible below the diagonal stations on the route multiplied by the score of the end station but divided by the score of the stations on unused lines.

I usually start with the basic edinburgh convention for passing at a nearby station, and of course double takes on the green line.

Paul's a fan of the kalashnikov, but the rarely played '89 edition. I'm not a connoisseur for the Russian variations - but They seem to put too much emphasis on the viability of a straddle.

Anyway, I shall take back, and diagonalize to strand.

Anyway sir. Your move.

He played Edgware Road. Interesting move, that. Especially combined with yours, as that means I can tap Hyde Park for four and convert that to a Get Out Of Arsenal Free card. In the process that does mean that my next move must be an Eulerean slide (due to the platforms being Eule'd) leaving me at Baker Street and in some danger.

I'm enforcing the no smoking regulations, and transposing the now built up quadrant of blue tokens to centre around kings cross.

Bear in mind the threat of a bomb threat has now moved to temple, but that isn't open today.

Edgware road is now in the red zone, and as such - all popular vending machines have died, and the up escalators are now out of order. This reduces the magnitude of paul's next manoeuvre to direct enclosure traversals.

Now, bearing all that in mind - Especially the no smoking rule at baker street, pipes are now banned.

Finally, I will play Passenger action at marlebourne, using the fire regulations in place the kings cross underground.

Oh, and I'll be moving to bank.

You bounder! That sends me straight to Kilburn.
