Threads of doom

By Legal Eagle

Sometimes, at social occasions, someone asks me what my PhD topic is. I pause. Then I say quickly, “Accounts-of-profit-for-breach-of-contract.” “Oh”, says my interlocutor. And the conversation dies right there and then.

Anyway, I think we’ve made a mutual decision that we are never, ever going to have a climate change post on this blog again, but if we happen to generate a thread of doom on another issue, I have a new idea of how to nip it in the bud. I’ll just say, “Would you like to hear about accounts of profit for breach of contract? I can tell you all about them.” And then the thread of doom will just die.

(Seriously, would you like to hear about them? Please? …No, don’t walk away, they’re very interesting!)
