oh my. I nearly lost it reading that... :P

This isn't funny, but I'm posting it because its plainly just awesome - and definitely uncommon.

Meanwhile, in melbourne, australia..

^This is Natalie, she's ~90. Natalie received a scholarship to study piano performance in london when she was 16 but was never able to go.

These days she can be found living at a pub in the city, they have a piano.. she plays it during the evenings to cover her board I believe. At other times she can be found busking in the city - playing pretty much whatever work is asked of her, arranged by ear into her currently favoured medium of melody + batshit insane cascading arpeggios. Usually with an audience, most of whom are soon crying.

EDIT: I think I over shot on her age slightly.. 70-80 perhaps, I dont know. not young.

Somehow she seems like me in a few years
For your sake, lets hope that's only in part..

http://www.theage.com.au/national/virtuoso-has-grand-plan-to-soothe-the-city-streets-20100105-lsda.html

"her two daughters died, at ages six and 22. Her husband left her and one of her two sons has battled illness and drug and alcohol addiction for 20 years."

"for nine years she lived either outdoors in Royal Park or in boarding houses."

...

perhaps this part.
"I just love being there and I feel that they should hear the music. The way I feel when I play and the way I feel when I'm among the people, it just feels really good."

sorry for the thread hijack enrique.. I'll try to rectify it when I come across something worthy.

Meanwhile in the U.S., you find two urinals side-by-side.  That's just as bad as the Russian bathroom.  No two guys are ever going to use two urinals crammed in next to each other.  Someone's just not thinking when it comes to bathrooms.

I was going to post a pic, but most people know what they look like and the pic I found was gross.
