Of course, the geek side of my then proceeded to overanaylyze the joke..."man, that's a poor mental implementation of the spec...he must not be checking for error conditions like 'out of shampoo'!"

My COBOL teacher showed us a rare videotape of a speech made by Grace Hopper in which she addressed the "lather, rinse, repeat" problem at length. I'm sure someone out there tried to do their thesis on it.

Maybe when he got low on shampoo he started rationing, Zeno-like-- he'd use half of the shampoo that was left, then half of what's left...

But then it would break down on the Lather step. I bet the poor bastard had torn all his hair out before he starved.

Just the type of insight we need to fire up the dabete.

There is lots of Spar shops in Palma and other supermarkets but they are very exnepsive so take the stuff with you, food is around double the price as UK, we paid a33 for a tin of spam and a35 for a packet of bacon, Cornflakes etc is a34, eating out for a basic burger & chips is around a310 and a33 for coffee and a35 for pint of beer, a kids happy meal type from Burger King is a36, entry to big discos are around a340 entrance fee, Banana Boat is a325, Paragliding a350. We were in Alcudia in the north of the island but went to Palma for the day. Good Luck
