The World Cup is almost upon us and so it’s time to make some predictions…

My three year old asked me a pretty interesting question this morning, “how many sleeps is it until next Easter?”

Could Jack Dawson (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Rose DeWitt Bukater (Kate Winslet) from the motion picture ‘Titanic’ both have survived by both floating on the door? (Clearly there are a load of spoilers in this article – but the film did come out over 20 years ago so I’m not going to worry too much about […]

How does a countries mean transfer spend relate to its UEFA coefficient?

No, this post isn’t 15 years late, Rio Ferdinand really did cost “more” than Paul Pogba…

After a spring clean I came across a talk I gave on the classification of complex reflection groups back in March 2011.

Today is pancake day and it got me thinking about the fact that I remember the day falling on my birthday (March 7th) just once in my lifetime. How long will I have to wait until it next falls on my birthday?

There was some discussion in my office today about the correlation between car insurance prices and where you live. The idea being that the prices are correlated with population density.

Anyone who knows me / has been lucky (!) enough to have been on a maths or physics course taught by me will know how I like to moan about the mathematics of the new pound coinâ€¦

I’ll get straight to the point, on average the first Premier League manager is sacked after 77 days.
