Average time spend in the restrooms
Here at where I work now, there is one restroom for the
whole department. Mostly, I meet many others there during my visit
there. This made me wonder about the average time that employees spent
in the restrooms. The average number of people in the restrooms
equals to the number of employees times the relative
amounth they spent in inside the facilities (assuming that people
attent the restrooms at random intervals). This number minus one, is the
average number of people that are in the facilities, while you are
there, assuming that all people spent about the same time in the
facilities. The number of people you meet is about twice as high as
this number, because some people go out shortly after you enter, while
others go in, just before you go out.
If you would count the number of people that you encounter on each
visit, and the time you spend in the facilities, you can calculate the
average time every body spends there. Of course, theory and reality
differ. There are certain times when people attent the restrooms more
often, such as directly before the lunch break, or at the end of the

had fallen. Less than a week ago, you could go outside without a coat.
Snow in April is regarded as exceptional by most people, but it is not.
Last year around this time it also

Today, I for the first time debugged a Visual Basic program. So, I feel I
can add another language to the list of programming languages I used.
This afternoon, I picked the Monet books
from my previous office. It had
already arrived last week, but until now, I had not found the opportunity
to get them. It is a very interesting book. I think, I will spend many
evenings looking into it, and admiring the paintings printed in these
Several events in the past days made me think again about what it means to
be spiritual. Many people seek to be spiritual, or, to phrase it in a
different, to become enlighted.
The bible also make a distinction between being spiritual, and being from
the flesh. (See for example Corinthans)
