    If we take in our hand any volume; of divinity or school metaphysics, for instance; let us ask, Does it contain any abstract reasoning concerning quantity or number? No. Does it contain any experimental reasoning concerning matter of fact and existence? No. Commit it then to the flames: for it can contain nothing but sophistry and illusion.

    We had a great time, Alkmaar is a great place. Everyone speaks english, everyone is friendly, everything is clean, organised, good facilities etc.
    Fencing was pretty hard going against some unexpectedly strong teams, particularly Russia and Netherlands.

    It's clear they referee sabre quite differently to us as well, separating nearly everything on the slightest hand preparation in the middle. Stuff we would have called together, or said "not enough" to, they separate every time.
    That was pretty frustrating, but something to learn from. Really enjoyed the cameraderie of the team though, happy to go back and do that again.
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”
