Plus ca change in South Africa.

A friend was bemoaning the poor standard of service in Matjiesfontein...
Great Karoo is bushy & green. XXX went to Sutherland with family from UK. Said it rained so much they had to beat a hasty retreat and went to Matjiesfontein and stayed at the Lord Milner, sadly looking run down and bad service & lack of staff training

Their waiter filled one red wine glass to the brim. It overflowed slightly and used his finger to wipe the glass. Aaaagh!
I pointed out that it has been ever thus in SA, as Michael Meyer and Darryl Jooste pointed out in this sketch back in the 70's...

I'm surprised that he found a shopping cart with a wheel that didn't wobble. :-o
I am hardly ever that lucky. :((

How a list of South African tornado statistics taught me about the collapse of empirical science and governance in my benighted country...

Look at the EF rating's post Mandela's demise.

In the tables of the most bizarre statistics, the truth of what chaos actually means... (vide. the Class column)...

I don't think so. One was hot and high and stood on the brakes.
