[SystemSafety] Faults in maths proofs

A propos of US politics ...

I'd like it to be known that I did my bit in manipulating social media 
against the present incumbent. (If Russia could do it last time, why not 
an individual in 2020?)

Since sparkling wit is too good for Trunt, and hard to serve up in large 
volumes, I opted for juvenile, vulgar, scatological school-yard jibes 
(which are also too good for Trunt but much easier to serve up in decent 
amounts). The net result was that I posted, in comments on US news clips 
on YouTube, a few hundred different ways of calling Trunt a specimen of 
ordure ... to the extent that YouTube suspended my account.

I'm taking that as a badge of honour and won't be asking YT to revoke 
the suspension. It was huge fun and staved off boredom during the worst 
of the lockdown. I leave you, therefore, with the text of but a single 

"Dogturd J. Trunt: The poor pooch that sh at t him onto the sidewalk has 
now had an emergency @rse transplant to make sure that nothing of the 
kind ever happens again."

... upon which cheery sentiment I bid all here the greetings of the season.
