Paris / London some numbers

Just to give an idea of how big London is !

London  : 
Area               :     1 579 km² 
Population in 2005 : 7 517 700 
Density in 2005    :     4 761/km² 

Paris :
Area               :        86.9 km² (or 105.397 see PS1)
Population in 2005 : 2 153 600
Density in 2005    :    24 783/km² 

On wikipedia :
Paris - link was pointing to London, thanks to the self-deleted comment for pointing that out -

NB: The number are written with a mix of french/english conventions, . as the decimal separator and ' ' as the thousands, so it's not ambigious for both.

PS1: "these limits changed marginally to 86.9 km² in the 1920's, and in 1929 the Bois de Boulogne and Bois de Vincennes forest parks were officially annexed to the city, bringing its area to its present 105.397 square kilometres (40.69 mi²)."

How to be lucky

"Here are Professor Wiseman's four top tips for becoming lucky:

* Listen to your gut instincts - they are normally right

* Be open to new experiences and breaking your normal routine

* Spend a few moments each day remembering things that went well

* Visualise yourself being lucky before an important meeting or telephone call. Luck is very often a self-fulfilling prophecy "

The wingman is arguably the noblest creature to ever step into a barroom.

A male (the flight leader) spots an attractive female (the bombing target) across the bar. But alas, she is not alone. She is paired with a tragically less attractive friend (the cock blocker). And they seem quite close, so close that the BT is unlikely to abandon her CB for a guy she just met.

The FL knows he’ll never be able to successfully complete his bombing run without proper air cover, and this is where the wingman comes into play. The wingman will engage the CB and pin her down long enough for the FL to finish his run, and hopefully bomb his target back to his bedroom.
