Scusa, c'hai cento lire?

Warren Buffet ieri ha deciso di dare 37 miliardi di dollari in beneficenza. 37 miliardi. La conversazione che ha con il giornalista di Fortune non e' davvero niente male:

...Well, when we got married in 1952, I told Susie I was going to be rich. That wasn't going to be because of any special virtues of mine or even because of hard work, but simply because I was born with the right skills in the right place at the right time. I was wired at birth to allocate capital and was lucky enough to have people around me early on - my parents and teachers and Susie - who helped me to make the most of that. In any case, Susie didn't get very excited when I told her we were going to get rich. She either didn't care or didn't believe me - probably both, in fact. But to the extent we did amass wealth, we were totally in sync about what to do with it - and that was to give it back to society...

OT qualunque squadra che schieri Del Piero al posto di Totti merita di perdere. Meno male che poi Lippi e' rinsavito e il pessimo arbitro ha visto un rigore inesistente..

Bohr: When the ships arrived on the wednesday, there were 8,000 jews in Denmark to be arrested and crammed into their holds. On the Friday evening, at the start of the Shabbat, when the SS began their round up, there was scarcely a jew to be found.
Margrethe: they'd all been hidden in churches and hospitals, in people's home and country cottages.
Bohr: But how was that possible? Because we'd been tipped off by someone in the German embassy. Your man?
Heisenberg: One of them
..
Bohr: Heisenberg, I have to say - if people are to be measured stricly in terms of observable quantities..
Heisenberg: Then we should need a strange new quantum ethics. There'd a place in Heaven for me.
