Mr. Twister

Most homes have a number of trash bins for different kinds of trash: batteries in one; biodegradables in one; wood in one; colored glass in one, other glass in another; aluminum in one, other metals in another; newspapers in one, hard paper in another, and paper that doesn't fit these two categories in a third; and plastic of all sorts in another collection of bins. The materials generally have to be cleaned before thrown away — milk cartons with milk in them cannot be recycled just as metal cans cannot have too much of the paper labels left. http://www.mises.org/story/2855

EMMELOORD, Netherlands (Reuters) -- Dutch inventors unveiled Monday a 75,000 euro ($111,100) car-fuelling robot they say is the first of its kind, working by registering the car on arrival at the filling station and matching it to a database of fuel cap designs and fuel types.

A robotic arm fitted with multiple sensors extends from a regular petrol pump, carefully opens the car's flap, unscrews the cap, picks up the fuel nozzle and directs it toward the tank opening, much as a human arm would, and as efficiently.

Зачем? Потому что закон о минимальной заработной плате.

Luis Buñuel, "Una mujer sin amor" (1952)

Luis Buñuel, "Una mujer sin amor" (1952) [1], [2].

Мелодрама! По рассказу Ги де Мопассана! Обожаю. Очень понравилось. Весь фильм ахал, всплескивал руками и промокал глаза платочком. Другое дело жена, которая только пожимала плечами и интересовалась, много ли серий в этом мексиканском сериале. Но ведь до чего красиво!!!

Luis Buñuel considered this the worst film he had ever made, сообщает imdb. Вот совершенно не согласен. Сюзану, например, вообще не досмотрели.
