Firstly, apologies to anyone who picked up the gauntlet I threw down a week or so ago - if you did go to the Art Gallery I hope you went to the Laing and not the Walker, that's in Liverpool - gave me a surprise when I tapped it into www.rio2rome for a walking route from Newcastle Central Rail Station. I enjoyed my three days in and around the city (never having been into the centre before), well apart from the first minute and the last twenty of the match. In fact even the end of the match was enlivened by a sublime McGoldrick back heel to Lawrence to run onto and almost beat a couple of defenders. Jonny Williams showed a few fleeting glimpses of his genius too.
Being in a crowd in excess of fifty thousand felt good, we should do that more often, and everyone local seemed friendly enough. After the game we went to Chinatown and the Happiness 2 Inn, a real sensory treat. Already one Town fan in there (blue Adidas top with red trim, a TWTDer?) but almost all the diners were Chinese (British Chinese and local I guess) which was a good sign in my book. A couple of our supporters turned up later (I recognised them from Block L7H) and had the concept explained to them before they retreated - basically you pay £20 each for a large soup bowl with a divider that has two different stocks either side. This sits on a ceramic hob in the middle of the table and you fetch items from self service units to chuck into the stock and fish out with the chop sticks when cooked a few minutes later (with the exception of the satay sticks, they take those away and barbecue them for you). Magnificent meal and, considering you can grab a plate of fruit, any number of puddings and coconut or mango sago to drink, quite good value. Come on, Mick, get us promoted so I can go again next season.

|Lesson in logic|
at 14:56 10 Oct 2016
The logical Law of Non-contradiction states that a proposition cannot be both true and false, for example examine these pairs of propositions, each proposition and its negation form a tidy pair:
1. 7+5=12; it is not the case that 7+5=12
2. I was born on July 19; it is not the case that I was born on July 19
3. A bird in my garden is a woodpecker; it is not the case that a bird in my garden is a woodpecker
4. Manchester United have never knowingly hired a yeti; it is not the case that Manchester United have never knowingly hired a yeti
I can answer T,F,T,T without any qualms until a proposition that states:
The Law of Non-contradiction is true; it is not the case that the Law of Non-contradiction is true
Is there a logical way out of this and why does this differ from the old pub conundrum of 'I always tell lies'?
