A vertical Sunday

Perhaps not everyone fully appreciated Robocop's two-dimensional (i.e., up and down) run yesterday, but we all enjoyed the brilliantly scenic site deep in the hills between the Old and New Hatyai Roads. The turnout was big and the circle spirited even by Sunday standards. A few quick pix ....

P.S. Further to Saturday evening's tired and emotional discussion about language, yesterday Soft[REMAINDER OF NAME REDACTED] asked me the difference between a language and a dialect. I couldn't remember any linguistic definition but I suggested it was probably largely a political distinction. So I just checked and that seems to be about the size of it -- or as one linguist once put it, "A language is a dialect with an army."
