Haha, this reminds me when I was visiting a cigarette factory in China, the boss, friend of mine, gave me a tour to the place where not many guilao could access, and there was this lady putting cigarettes in boxes, he said she was the best in doing that. Like the employee of the month or something... Yep, manually. I mean, BY HAND!
Bands of rows and rows of women doing that, in fact, but I will talk about them as one, they were moving as one, and working as one. So, there was her. The boxes were coming on a conveyor belt and dropping on her left, in a big heap. The cigarettes were coming on her right, dropping in another big heap. There was another small heap of cigarettes in front of her, apparently for no reason. So, imagine this lady, one big heap of boxes spread in all directions on her left (not arranged! what do you think? they were just dropping through some hole from a meter above), one big heap of cigarettes (also oriented on all directions, not aligned to each other, dropping from another hole) on her right, and a small heap of notaligned cigarettes in front of her, apparently not moving, they were just there, not coming from a conveyor. They were assisting the whole process, wondering too, same as me, of what I am going to tell you... Now, this lady was taking, with a single fluid move, one box with the left hand from her left side, and a handfull of cigarettes with the right hand from her right side, which cigarettes were poking out through her fingers in all directions, same way as you would grab a handful of dirt from the soil, or something, and with the same fluid move, she was bringing the hands together in front of her, squeeze the box a little to make its top round, for a larger "entry surface", and drop all the cigarettes ("filter up"! no mistake!) in the box, then close the box with her left thumb, and throwing the box in a big bucket which was about 34 meters away (1012 feet, for Americans ), where other ladies were also throwing their packed boxes. Somebody was emptying the buckets regularly, taking the boxes for checking and future packing, adding the foil, whatever. If this fluid move is not clear for you, try doing it step by step! Take the box, take the handful of sticks, throw the sticks in the box, in such a way that all end aligned and "filter up". Repeat 31 times. Because 31 is prime, is mersenne prime, and mersenne prime exponent. Then repeat again... Well, I was totally mesmerized by what that lady was doing with her hands and how fast she was doing it, one box every seconds or so, was flying out of her hands. I suspect the reason was also because we (and the boss) were around, but she wasn't seem to pay attention, and anyhow, that is irrelevant. She was just doing that, like a machine. My dilemma, which I immediately voiced out loud to the boss, was "How does she know, and how can she pick up every time exactly 20 cigarettes?". I mean, c'mon, try emptying 34 boxes of matches on the floor, from about one meter, in a heap, then try picking 20 matches in a single gesture. Ninja strike stye. Or cobra strike, if you like. Repeat 10 times and say how many times you were successful in picking exactly 20 sticks? And without breaking them. Then, think that cigarettes are more fragile and more difficult to handle. In fact, she was doing that almost in blind, without even looking, apparently. Then, try throwing all in a box in such a way they all end with the phosphorus in the same direction. To which the boss replied, Ryan style: "She doesn't pick 20 every time. Sometimes she picks 19 by mistake, or 21, but if that happens, you see she has a small pail in front of her, she picks one from there on the way with her fingers, or leaves one there".... Piece of cake. Mystery solved... Last fiddled with by LaurV on 20201120 at 11:18
