I was trying to think of the single most pointless thing I own,
the thing I have absolutely no conceivable use for.
And I decided that, narrowly beating the liquid lunch entitled
"Shakespeare's Sonnets: the Problems Solved" (by A.L. Rowse)
it would have to be
the inverse hyperbolic cosine function on my electronic calculator.
If you've any comments about his poems,
would be plesed to hear from you.
