Yesterday Stapler has this to say:
Stapler's first attempt at a novel: Once upon a time - suggestive that this is set in the past but this is not the case since the past is by definition 'past' and hence of no consequence even though some say past is prologue which is an interesting concept though one better discussed elsewhere and it certainly is not set in the future since future fiction is speculative and also essentially pointless therefore 'once upon a time' is used purely in the romantic sense and no more - there was a little robot.
Today he had this to say:
Stapler antenna detect 15,093 radio stations but Stapler prefer to listen to evensong of the aphid. Very beautiful.
Apparently, the self raising hat was a real invention by James Boyle in 1896.
