But I would like to have an bookish or analytical work just
once before I leave this world. A full-time translator tho,
oh no. I think even with Emacs a full-blown CAT that
would stink. Well, MUCH less so obviously, but still ...

Organization skills from Emacs comes handy! Soo easy compared
to what we do every day, but don't tell anyone :)

For example ... see the distances between the uprights in the
"triangle-wagon.jpg" photo? They are the same. It doesn't take
a math professional like yourself to know that with static
quantities and a single unknown it's - algebra :)

But a lot of these guys don't know that. "- How did you do it? -
A folding rule ... - Aaah ..."

I know, I heard it several times! And I have heard young
Polish people blame Sweden even more than Russia for the
_present_ situation in Poland (whatever that is, in their
minds). Because the Russians at least help rebuild and
organize things after WW2, they said.
