Economical mumbo-jumbo

Whilst browsing the Internet I recently ran into an interesting (and probably totally unreallistic) idea: universities should be free from charge for all students. Their (i.e. universities’) income should be funded exclusively off a 10% tax charged unconditionally from all alumni for the first ten years after they graduate. This would – in theory – lead to situation where „better” schools would be feeding job market with „better” professionals which in turn would make them (again, just hypothetically) more money.

0, 1, 8, 144 (EN)

While surfing the Internet I recently found an interesting (although completely incomprehensible) proof of a conjecture stating that 0, 1, 8 and 144 are the only perfect squares in the famous Fibonacci sequence.

For greenhorns: Fibonacci sequence starts with 0 followed by 1, then each subsequent terms is a sum of two preceding terms: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, … and so on, indefinitely.

Sh*t happens

 

As Confucius used to say, shit happens. He was a smart lad so there is no point not to believe him.

Shit that happens to happen is usually a bad shit. More or less. Ocasionally you discover that some of the bad shit happens only to unravel a surprisingly good shit later on which is exactly my case, right now.

As we all know[citation needed], people belong to one of the two groups: they either do backups on a regular basis, or they will be doing backups on a regular basis.

Back to roots

Somewhen in June 2010 I got my very first smartphone. It was a Samsung Galaxy S.

OK, to be completely honest, I used to use one or two Windows Mobile based phones since around 2006 but let’s face the truth: Android is to Windows Mobile as is a Tyranosaurus Rex to a cow. Well, maybe except the fact that cows haven’t extincted yet but let’s not get diverged from the main topic…
