Archibald MacLeish - The End Of The World

Quite unexpectedly, as Vasserot
The armless ambidextrian was lighting
A match between his great and second toe,
And Ralph the lion was engaged in biting
The neck of Madame Sossman while the drum
Pointed, and Teeny was about to cough
In waltz-time swinging Jocko by the thumb---
Quite unexpectedly the top blew off:

And there, there overhead, there, there hung over
Those thousands of white faces, those dazed eyes,
There in the starless dark the poise, the hover,
There with vast wings across the cancelled skies,
There in the sudden blackness the black pall
Of nothing, nothing, nothing --- nothing at all.

биокатализатор топлива

Всем привет.
Предлагаю вам, не имея опыта ВООБЩЕ, вступить в команду, занимающаяся топливным бизнесом.
Мы продаем биокатализатор топлива.
Что он делает:
а)Уменьшается шум двигателя
б)Увеличивается приемистость
в)Увеличивается мощность двигателя
г)Уменьшается выброс ЦО
д)И САМОЕ ОСНОВНОЕ - уменьшается расход топлива на 10-30%,
а если учитывать что можно перейти с 95 на 92 бензин,
то процент экономии растет.
В компании уже 62 тысячи человек, работаем по всему миру.
Если заинтересовало, пишем на tushinsky1@ya.ru - введу в курс дела.
Сразу скажу - никакой халявы, ваши $ зависят только от вас.
С уважением, Евгений.
