I listen half-heartedly enough to my radio as I work. The shows are fine, but my mind is on my workbench.
It does jolt up when It hears something unusual. Thursday I learned that there is a society that concerns itself with Austriaporosis. Yes, exactly that. I heard it precisely enough from the volunteer announcer to rivet me.
And to send me off on a speculative journey. Is Austria all that porous? is this increasing? I know there are salt mines in Salzburg, and the Eisreisenhohle somewhat south of it, but whether the rest of the country resembles a sponge or not is a mystery.
Just as well there is a society devoted to these studies.
