Conversation on a train today

A mum and her daughter sat next to and across from me, the other woman who was sat at the table had disappeared a few minutes earlier:

 

Daughter: "Where's she gone?"

 

Mum: "Who?"

 

D: The irish woman

 

M: She was Scottish

 

D: Well I don't know, I can't tell the difference.

 

M: Well what do you expect on a train coming from Glasgow?

 

D: Exactly - Glasgow's in Wales innit so she could be Irish or Scottish. I know she's not Welsh, I'm not that thick.

 

M: Are you serious?

 

D: Yeah why?

 

M: Because Glasgow is in Scotland not Wales.

 

D: So if Galsgow is in Scotland, does that mean Edinburgh's in Wales then?

 

M: No. Edinburgh is in Scotland as well.

 

D: Serious? They have like 2 places? Is that like where we live there's Blackburn and Clitheroe?

 

M: A bit yeah. Not exactly but a bit.

 

D: So what's in Wales then? Is that where Ireland is?

 

M: No Ireland is different.

 

D: So what's in Ireland?

 

M: Well it depends on whether you're talking about Northen Ireland or The Republic?

 

D: What about West Ireland?

 

And so it went on....

 

The really worrying thing was when they then discussed the reason for going to London - checking out the universities for her degree course.

Glas is the modern Welsh word for blue although it was originally the word for green!

 

Glasgow, Scotland. From words equivalent to Welsh Glas gau[10](green hollow – possibly that below Glasgow Cathedral)[26]

And with one fell swoop, Goodman's 'Grue' paradox - and with it the problem of induction - is resolved, by formulating it (and all scientific statements) in Welsh. Who'd have thought it?
