Он собирался покинуть город и уже был в пути, when I suddenly remembered, that I forgot to put one seal, formally allowing him to travel. Ямагучи вернулся в офис, а затем снова поспешил прочь из Хиросимы. Когда он выходил из трамвая, примерно в трёх км от него взорвался «Малыш» — сброшенный американцами ядерный заряд.

При взрыве у Цутому лопнули барабанные перепонки, на некоторое время он практически полностью ослеп и получил серьёзные ожоги. Проведя ночь в бомбоубежище, японец уехал домой… в Нагасаки.

Lucky people see opportunities there, where others do not notice them

To discover this ability in lucky people, Weisman conducted a very simple and funny experiment.. He asked the participants to flip through the newspaper and find out, how many photos are printed in it. It was a simple and boring task for careful counting., which the, at first sight, had nothing to do with luck.

On that, to count the total of all photos, it took a group of unlucky people about two minutes ... lucky people did it in two seconds.


“Because, that on the second page of the newspaper was printed the message “Stop counting. In this newspaper 43 photos". This message was half a page, and it was printed in huge letters. It was impossible not to notice him, but unlucky people, usually, overlooked him, and the lucky ones noticed right away ", - Wiseman writes.

But that's not all.

To make the experiment even more interesting, about the middle of the newspaper another big message was posted. It said “Stop counting, tell the experimenter, what did you see this message, and get 250 dollars ". And again, no one from the group of unlucky people noticed him, because they were too keen on finding photos.

Во время Первой Мировой войны Вайолет Джессоп служила стюардессой на плавучем госпитале «Британник» (по странному совпадению также принадлежавшем «White Star Line»). В Эгейском море, недалеко от острова Кеа, судно подорвалось на мине и моментально затонуло, since almost all portholes were open. Живучая стюардесса смогла выбраться из корабля и избежать смерти от винтов «Британника». После третьего крушения она ещё много лет работала стюардессой и умерла от сердечной недостаточности в 1971-м году.
