I am now fasting for 18 hours a day, eating a balanced meal at each end of a six hour window – called “intermittent fasting”.

Looking at Twitter, inevitably leading to having to look at US politics. A couple of thoughts from a perspective across the pond:

It may be acausal or a contributing factor but it seems that US Presidential elections have always been won by the more entertaining of the two party nominees. I can’t think of an exception.

In a national Presidential election the candidate with the most votes should win. Electoral colleges are relevant to parliamentary systems of government, where the head of government must have the support of the elected legislature. An unbiased opinion on this should not be influenced by who might or might not have won previous elections under the different election rules.
