In a recent study, a detailed analysis of the current situation was undertaken in order to derive the current trends. These were then carefully extrapolated, within the constraints of the relevant parameters. The resulting projections indicate a high probability (> 0.68) that the situation will have infelicitous consequences.
This not good. Bad things soon.
The woman’s chances of a quiet bath are pretty slender.
Shovel in an extra helping of those Chocolate Frosted Sugar Bombs. You’re going to need them.

And I see that no-one has taken the tape recorder back to Goldie, or given it back to Lupin.
I think maybe bad sort of things are going to happen.
Pascal’s wager is about belief in the existence of God in the Christian sense. Calvin is concerned about the afterlife, which is a different subject. It is logically possible for God to exist, but there be no afterlife, and for there to be an afterlife without God. There is a Pascal’s wager-like quality about Calvin’s position. 1. If there is no afterlife, and you don’t watch TV in this life, then you will never watch TV.2. If there is no afterlife, and you watch TV in this life, then you will watch TV.3. If there is an afterlife, and you don’t watch TV in this life, then you will be able to watch TV in the afterlife.4. If there is an afterlife, and you watch TV in this life, then you will also be able to watch TV in the afterlife.
So obviously the safest bet it to watch TV in this life. At least you will get some TV.
(I’m assuming that TV is available in the afterlife, but if it isn’t, what would be the point to an afterlife?)
