Default Mally's habits

Mally had a habit of using newspaper-cuttings as bookmarks.In one of
his books I found the following:

"200 hundred year old maths query solved"

This refers to solution of "Warring problem"-resolution of any positive
integer into 19 fourth powers-a problem solved by Prof. R.Balasubramaniam
and French collaborators.The cutting is dated 17th Feb 1986.

Incidentally exactly four months have pased since Mally's passing.

He never mastered the art of the one-liner though.

less talk. More action.

I have to admit missing Mally. Things were NOT dull when he was around.

Verbal diaorreah (can't spell it) is how I would describe it.

"Dire rear".

And you're probably trying to describe logorrhea.

Diarrhoea. Just got the h and o in the wrong place. Not difficult IMO.
This was indeed what I was trying (succeeded?) to describe.

Not to be confused with their siblings "Chris" or "Gonna"
