Secondly, the instrument weighs in at only 8.6 kg and being only cm. 35x20x40 is small despite everything contained within its meagre dimensions.Its right-hand manual has a range of 43 notes (two semitone more than a standard piano accordion!)

You might find some fools at your doorstep

I’ve become slightly addicted to the gym - not in the knocking off convenience stores to pay my membership fees kind of addicted, more of a twice a week endorphin fueled buzz kind of addicted. Anyway, I was at the gym this morning and I noticed that they had installed a heavy bag since the last time I was there. Intrigued, I asked the guys at the front how to use it. Yes, I know, you punch it. And to their credit, the young blokes resisted the urge to indulge in their generational predisposition to sarcasm. Computer & Tech Tips from the Great Lakes Geek. By now you've undoubtedly heard that Daylight Saving Time (DST) has been extended in the US starting this year. DST will start on March 11, 2007, three weeks earlier than usual, and it will end on November 4, 2007, one week later than usual.

So we get 4 extra weeks of DST.

Unfor­tu­nately, this makes the whole thing a lot less cred­ible, but since this is the only inform­a­tion we have right now, let’s hope someone else can verify these things at a later date.

So far, one pro­fessor (who also wishes to remain anonymous) thinks these are real, but as of yet, no one is willing to put their name down on any kind of formal state­ment. If you, or anyone you know, has the rel­evant expertise to look over these studies, please drop me a line! The Lucifer Effect by Philip Zimbardo. Prepared by Philip Zimbardo and Cindy X.

April 2009

" Like a lot of Americans of my generation, I discovered the blues via the Rolling Stones. My grandparents bought me the first Stones album for Christmas in 1964 (I was five), and the first song on side two was a note-for-note cover of Slim Harpo's I'm A King Bee. It quickly became my favorite song. Lamy 27 – a review of a little gem « lady dandelion.

The shape is a forebode of the space age – as many other things designed during the 1950s and 1960s. The rounded corners of the ink windows gives it a both playful and futuristic look.
