PhiloMadrid - Pub Philosophy Meetings in Madrid

from Lawrence, Pub Philosophy Group, Sunday meeting: Mistakes in Life + Segovia 3 June

Dear friends,

Last Sunday it was brought to my attention that on the 27 May there will
be the local elections. Because of this I suggested, and a majority of
people reluctantly agreed, to go to Segovia on the 3^rd of June.

For those who might not be going to Segovia, you can still organise a
meeting, maybe someone will volunteer to chair the meeting. As you can
see from the details below it is not practical to come early from
Segovia and have a meeting after. I thank you in advance for helping out
on this.

So far I have got the following train details and options.

Leave Nuevos Ministerios --> arrive Segovia

8.01 am --> 10.05am

10.01am --> 12.04pm

Leave Segovia --> arrive Madrid

16.50 --> 18.50pm

18.55 --> 20.55pm

Price 11.3 euros return.

We can decide this Sunday which option to take, although it seems that
there is only one obvious option. But let's wait for Sunday. If you have
any comments please send me an email and I'll pass it on during the meeting.

For those who might ask about a bus service, there is a bus service, but
I resent having to give my life history, dating back to ten minutes
before the big bang, just to get some info on a time table and a bus
fare to Segovia. I find this gross internet aggression.

Talking about mistakes (by the bus company) this Sunday we are talking
about Mistakes in Life, which should be quite useful for us given that
we have to decide the Segovia trip.

I will try to finish the essay by mid day or early afternoon tomorrow
(Friday), but as always, I cannot promise. For those who still want
something to prepare for Sunday I suggest you have a look at this
presentation by Prof. Schwartz. He is the guy who told us why we are not
necessarily better off the more choice we have.
