100 000 EUR doodled on my account. Yiha!

A very simple diddle, indeed, is this. The captain of a ship which is about to sail, is presented by an official looking person, with an unusually moderate bill of city charges. Glad to get off so easily, and confused by a hundred duties pressing upon him all at once, he discharges the claim forthwith. In about fifteen minutes, another less reasonable bill is handed him by one who soon makes it evident that the first collector was a diddler, and the original collection a diddle.

This is not from a book

In order to keep up with you demanding readers (we mean that as a compliment!) and maintain the quality of posts here, we’re moving from daily posts to a weekly one. It will be published on Mondays.

Also, from now on we’re inviting you to send us book extracts that you think are intriguing, boring, amazing, weird, cool or just...WORTH TO BE BLOGGED about. The invitation is open and ongoing so when you discover something...let us know and stay cool.

The quote should be in English around 100 words long. We also need the name of the author and a title. If you want to send us a photo, please make sure it's royalty and copyright free or you have the permission to use it (if you don't have one we'll choose it for you!). It should be a jpg, gif, bmp or png image of 8 MB maximum size. Also, send us a link if you want one to be included in the post. The mailing address is bluzica at net.hr.
