память

Впервые за 15 лет вычислял значение квадратного корня из 2, чтобы вписать квадрат в окружность. Поразительно, что формула легко всплыла из памяти спасибо школе №36 и Роману Григорьевичу.

ATM

LONDON (Reuters) - A cash machine became a big hit this week after it started paying out twice as much money as it should.

The ATM, outside a supermarket in Hull, began spewing out double the money on Tuesday afternoon and continued doing so for several hours, drawing a crowd of hundreds eager to cash in on the mistake.

Those requesting the maximum daily withdrawal of 300 pounds were being given 600 pounds and a receipt for 300.

"People were calling their mates up and telling them to get down there," the Hull Daily Mail quoted a passer-by as saying.

After several hours the machine finally ran out of money.

Payzone, a company that administers ATMs, would not comment in detail on the incident but said it appeared one of its machines had malfunctioned.

Police said those who had benefited could face charges but only if the operator complained.

Вилка

Ставил новое бра. Шнур не прилагался. Нашел старый, но без вилки. Чтобы найти вилку, перевернул весь дом (а внутренний голос говорил: купи новую - будет быстрей). Розеток, патронов, выключптелей - залейся, а вилки нет. Нашел. Поставил. Включил. Не горит. И здесь я обнаружил, что когда я включал, один контакт у вилки отломался, видимо от старости. Пошел в магазин. М.б. последует продолжение.

Age

Kоньяк вместо вина, Silverlight вместо девушек и rock'n'roll вместо джаза......

Web statistic - very high numbers

      http://www.alleyinsider.com/2007/10/consumer-behavi.html recently recapped the results of a new Avenue A/Razorfish survey of broad-based consumer behavior ("all demographics") conducted in July.

Henry painted some of the survey results as evidence of poor consumer uptake of certain web businesses and trends. What follows is the content from his post but with all results expressed as % of adoption (as opposed to % of lack of adoption).

Henry has a point that some of these numbers look high, if truly measured against "all demographics", but on the other hand I've seen instance after instance over the last 10 years where actual consumer adoption curves of new technologies -- especially new Internet technologies -- have been way ahead of where elite opinion assumed them to be.

  • 42% regularly purchase music online

  • 54% start their product research at a search engine

Ленин про Шарона

"История  знает  превращения  всяких  сортов;   полагаться   на
убежденность,   преданность   и  прочие  превосходные  душевные
качества  --  это  вещь  в  политике   совсем   не   серьезная"

Writer's Block: A Winter Memory

Место действия Ленинград, у выхода из ресторана Норд. время 15 января 1973 года, 12:30 ночи, участники: я и еще две юные.
Чувства по Аристотелю.

1. Зрение: крупные хлопья снега медленно кружаться в свете уличных фонарей а я с двумя юными продолжаю начатый в ресторане танец на проезжей части машины безропотно останавливаются

2. Слух: вы будете смеяться, но в ушах играет "Утомленное солнце..."

3. Обоняние. Морозный запах юных щек, если кто понимает о чем я

4. Осязание. Нежное тепло девичьих пальцев

5. Вкус. Тающие на языке снежинки


PS. Поразительно, но одна из (теперь уже не вполне) юных помнит абсолютно то же самое - проверял два года назад!

Describe a winter memory using all five senses.
