"I think not. I've never known or heard of a whale attacking a boat unless when struck by a harpoon." "Thanks. One thing more." He held out two keys and a scrap of paper. "These keys are for my box in the Windsor Safe Deposit Vaults. Number and password are written on the paper. Everything I own is in the box. My wife is provided for with an annuity. There are securities to the amount of擮h, I don't know, half a million, maybe. You can't return it because the records of whom I obtained it are burned. But take it and do some good act. Build a home for indigent millionaires攐r anything you like." "On board this yacht we all, officers and men, mean to be as comfortable as we possibly can, so there is one topic of conversation, and one only, that I must ask you to avoid. As you are of Hibernian birth I am afraid you will find it difficult to do so." His school, Monta Loma Elementary, was a series of low-slung 1950s buildings four blocks from his house. He countered his boredom by playing pranks. 鈥淚 had a good friend named Rick Ferrentino, and we鈥檇 get into all sorts of trouble,鈥?he recalled. 鈥淟ike we made little posters announcing 鈥楤ring Your Pet to School Day.鈥?It was crazy, with dogs chasing cats all over, and the teachers were beside themselves.鈥?Another time they convinced some kids to tell them the combination numbers for their bike locks. 鈥淭hen we went outside and switched all of the locks, and nobody could get their bikes. It took them until late that night to straighten things out.鈥?When he was in third grade, the pranks became a bit more dangerous. 鈥淥ne time we set off an explosive under the chair of our teacher, Mrs. Thurman. We gave her a nervous twitch.鈥? 黄色影院-影院在线-黄的在线的影院 "This young fellow is mad攐r the next thing to it. If we could put him in the hands of a good brain specialist, and have his senses restored by proper treatment, he might make an invaluable witness against the man we really want." "Very well, then. Here, Herbert, make yourself useful, and write these twelve names on envelopes." Both of these opened out of the main saloon, which, with its mahogany swing-table, sideboards, bookcases, and sofa-berths, seemed quite a large apartment compared with the cabin on board our cutter "Spray." This cabin was lighted by the skylight on deck, and at night by a large swinging lamp, judging by the fittings on the deck-beams. One of the Mac team鈥檚 programmers, Steve Capps, decided this new spirit warranted hoisting a Jolly Roger. He cut a patch of black cloth and had Kare paint a skull and crossbones on it. The eye patch she put on the skull was an Apple logo. Late one Sunday night Capps climbed to the roof of their newly built Bandley 3 building and hoisted the flag on a scaffolding pole that the construction workers had left behind. It waved proudly for a few weeks, until members of the Lisa team, in a late-night foray, stole the flag and sent their Mac rivals a ransom note. Capps led a raid to recover it and was able to wrestle it from a secretary who was guarding it for the Lisa team. Some of the grown-ups overseeing Apple worried that Jobs鈥檚 buccaneer spirit was getting out of hand. 鈥淔lying that flag was really stupid,鈥?said Arthur Rock. 鈥淚t was telling the rest of the company they were no good.鈥?But Jobs loved it, and he made sure it waved proudly all the way through to the completion of the Mac project. 鈥淲e were the renegades, and we wanted people to know it,鈥?he recalled.
