What's the Odds?

I didn't expect this hat!

Mardon Mandro just turns up
without rhyme nor reason
unlikely to be second guessed
in or out of season

Mardon Mandro unconstrained
a one off act unique
underpinning all uncertainty
a cryptic havoc wreak

Mardon Mandro fluttering free
singular or tandem
most likely you’ve decided now
that Mardon Mandro’s random


For the children who have little expectation random is the ruler.

Question: How long will wine stay fresh in a 'Klein Wine' bottle

A Klein bottle is a non-orientable surface, where there is no distinction between inside and outside. So unlike a sphere, where you cannot pass from the outside to the inside without passing through the surface, in a Klein bottle you can do just that. If you were very small, an ant say, you could start at any point, and keep crawling until you reached the other side of the surface, without passing through any surfaces, and without needing to cross any edges.
