This is a still from the classic film 1960 'The Apartment'. Jack Lemmon plays CC Baxter, a clerk in a large insurance company in New York, and so here you see his office - drones laid out at desks almost as far at the eye can see. Each desk has a telephone, rolodex, typewriter and a large electro-mechanical calculating machine.  In some of the other shots you can see the manufacturer - 'Friden'.  In effect, every person on that floo...

A bison charged a Mississippi woman who had turned her back to it to take a photo. The animal tossed her in the air, the National Park Service said.

Case in point: this morning I saw a post in which I had a tip to offer, but it was only peripheral to the main question.  The rules there require that only complete answers to main question be posted as replies, and anything else must be a comment.  But here's the rub:  in order to comment you need a certain minimum number of points, which require me to reply to many other threads there before I might remember to go back to that one to post the useful info I know would have been helpful.

SO is a good idea, but its community could benefit from either serious refinement or finding a replacement.
