Tune in later today for an unfathomable battle of good versus evil:
The Vreelander versus the Psychic Squid!
Yes, the World Cup has come to this.
I have boldly predicted a victory for Germany based on 3 publications with a German co-author - plus working papers with 3 other German co-authors - and none with Spanish scholars.
But the Psychic Squid has chosen Spain for victory.
I have science plus a spurious correlation on my side. But Paul the Octopus has destiny on his.
Will fate triumph over freedom of choice? Or can The Vreelander defeat the Octopus? It is now just a matter of time till we find out.
