Jāsaka, ka es savukārt nesaprotu cilvēkus, kuri nesaprot "Birdman".

Tas ir, baidos, ka saprotu, bet ceru, ka nē.

The most obvious differences between different animals are differences of size, but for some reason the zoologists have paid singularly little attention to them. In a large textbook of zoology before me I find no indication that the eagle is larger than the sparrow, or the hippopotamus bigger than the hare, though some grudging admissions are made in the case of the mouse and the whale. But yet it is easy to show that a hare could not be as large as a hippopotamus, or a whale as small as a herring. For every type of animal there is a most convenient size, and a large change in size inevitably carries with it a change of form.

Let us take the most obvious of possible cases, and consider a giant man sixty feet high—about the height of Giant Pope and Giant Pagan in the illustrated Pilgrim’s Progress of my childhood.
These monsters were not only ten times as high as Christian, but ten times as wide and ten times as thick, so that their total weight was a thousand times his, or about eighty to ninety tons. Unfortunately the cross sections of their bones were only a hundred times those of Christian, so that every square inch of giant bone had to support ten times the weight borne by a square inch of human bone. As the human thigh-bone breaks under about ten times the human weight, Pope and Pagan would have broken their thighs every time they took a step. This was doubtless why they were sitting down in the picture I remember. But it lessens one’s respect for Christian and Jack the Giant Killer.

Tātad, par ko runājās cilvēki šaušanas spēļu forumos?

Pareizi, par diferenciālvienādojumiem )

P.S. Tā bija astotā lappuse šai tēmā. And it's all for fun. Gandrīz vai arī jākļūst par mūzikas producentu. :D Ja vien man būtu drusku tehniskāka izpratne par lietām...

Lasot ziņas un to komentārus kārtējo reizi jāsecina, ka biedējošākais ļoti nacionāli/pretkrieviski noskaņotos izvirdumos ir tieši tas, ka viņi ar "niknajiem vatņikiem" runā pilnīgi vienā valodā.

Kādreiz es mēģināju aizmirst, kad man ir dzimšanas diena. Nevarētu teikt, ka tas tā īsti izdevās, bet ik pa brīdim bija tā, ka man bija drusku jāpadomā, lai atbildētu.

"There were a lot of monstrous mothers," Gaiman says, "who pretty much uniformly became step–mothers". Snow White's stepmother was her biological mother in the original; Hansel and Gretel's stepmother, who sends them out to starve in the woods, was their mother in the first instance. Of all the historical revisions of fairy tales, perhaps none was as dramatic as the self–censorship of the Grimms themselves.

Diskusija pie [info]lemurs mudināja apcerēt: nez, ir vēl kādi, kuriem, piemēram, sportzāles abonements vai kas tāds, ja kādreiz nopirkts, paliek tā arī neizmantots — varbūt vienu reizi vai divas aiziet, bet pēc tam "man nav laika, man jāsteidzās"?

Man tas ir diezgan tipiski. Tāpēc vairāk nekādus tādus nepērku, bet tikai vienreizējo, kad reāli aizeju. Atceros vēl morisejam savulaik uzdāvinājām pa vairākiem kopā dāvanu karti jaunām brillēm; viņš, protams, teica palddies un jūsmoja un tā arī, šķiet, gada laikā neizmantoja, jo turpināja staigāt apkārt ar ieplīsušajām.

Interesanti arī, cik lielā mērā sporta zāles uz to pelna ar overbookingu.
