    We have this problem too with a soap dispenser. (They are for washing your hands before you dry them.) The one of the right never works. I mean never. Like you, I always try to get soap from it. I have thought about this a lot actually and I think I have figured it out. Of course, me trying to use the soap dispenser even though I know it won't work is, in itself the definition of insanity let us just focus on the dispenser not working. The custodian will enter the men's room and open all of the soap dispenders and paper towel dispensers and see that they are full and think nothing of it, or they will refill what is needed. If the soap dispenser simply does not work it will always appear to be full and no action is necessary. These people probably mindlessly do their jobs and don't care enough to inform facilities that it is broken. I mean that would mean more work, right?

    By the way, I started a thread that this could fit into. Have you read it? It is quite something.

    The last few nights I have woken up in a panic, worried about the details of some complex plan I had to execute in the morning. But there was no such plan. For example, this morning I woke up in a panic about how to drive my friend to North Dakota before work today.

    The Kinks' "Sunny Afternoon" is a good song, but I heard somebody sing it kareoke one night and it totally ruined it for me.

    Listen to the correct version as soon as you can. Don't let it be ruined!

    In asia the KTVs have the option where you sing that song and get simultaneously blown by two hookers.


    being blown by two hookers while singing it is always the correct version of that song.

    There is an automatic paper towel dispenser at one public restroom I visit regularly that never dispenses a proper length of paper towel, so I always have to hit it more than once. That is, I used to have to hit it more than once. Thanks to the glory of the internet and a few simple tools I "hacked" the dispenser to now dispense a proper length of towel. I'm quite pleased with myself.

    This made me laugh because we also have a soap dispenser that doesn't work, and yet I always try to get soap out of it. It's the middle sink of three, and my love of symmetry always draws me to that sink.

    Fuck yes. That towel is as long as two sheets of A4. It's glorious.

    Procrastination.
    Anyway, today was rather satisfying. Even though I didn't learn much in quantity, the general willingness and concentration was there. Now that I just have one week left til the first exams, I'm feeling enough pressure to really work.
    Why do I need the pressue if it could be so much easier? Anyway, I'm confident that I'll improve it for the next exams. So for the next 7 days it'll mean learning all morning, all day and all evening. Yay.
