BERLIN: An obviously tired German bank employee fell asleep on his keyboard and accidentally transformed a minor transfer into a $293-million order, a court heard on Tuesday.

The Hessen labour court heard that the man was supposed to transfer just 62.40 from a bank account belonging to a retiree, but instead fell asleep for an instant while pushing onto the number 2 key on the keyboard, making it a huge 222,222,222.22 order.

Haven’t we all been there?

I heard that the NSA is working on a device that while monitoring you at your computer, if  detected that you are sleepy – you will receive a mild taser jolt!

Poem -” Snow “

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

 

SNOW 

Don’t blow,

And mound up,

Miles of piles,

With no style,

Heaps of white,

Does it bite?

Or take a light?

Pounds of snow,

Slushy,

Mushy,

I see a robin,

Playing with a bobbin,

On the edge of a pine,

Wasting time,

Hoping those worms,

Have long life terms,

As they sleep,

Under the snow so deep,

Making the robin weep,

SNOW.
