— Вы верный друг отечества! — торжественно сказал Остап, запивая пахучий шашлык сладеньким кипиани. — Пятьсот рублей могут спасти гиганта мысли.
— Скажите, — спросил Кислярский жалобно, — а двести рублей не могут спасти гиганта мысли?
Остап не выдержал и под столом восторженно пнул Ипполита Матвеевича ногой.
— Я думаю, — сказал Ипполит Матвеевич, — что торг здесь неуместен!
Он сейчас же получил пинок в ляжку, что означало: «Браво, Киса, браво, что значит школа!»

Английский перевод:
"You're a true friend of society," said Ostap triumphantly, washing down the spicy kebab with sweetish Kipiani wine. "Fifty can save the master-mind."
"Won't twenty save the master-mind?" asked Kislarsky dolefully.
Ostap could not restrain himself and kicked Ippolit Matveyevich under the table in delight.
"I consider that haggling," said Ippolit Matveyevich, "is somewhat out of place here."
He immediately received a kick on the thigh which meant- Well done, Pussy, that's the stuff!

У переводчика внезапная проблема с числительными?
Кстати, в этой версии перевода (лежит у Мошкова) — Pussy, а в гуглокнигах — Kisa. С чего бы?..

Well, (in a way) I'm glad I'm not the only one with this problem. I have it
with GNU Emacs 24.3.1 on Fedora 19 and Gnome and enquired about it on this
group on 2013-11-21 ("Intermittent problems with cut/copy and paste (using CUA
keys) between Emacs and other programs") where I asked how to go about tracking
down the bug, but got no response to that.

After Emacs has been running for a few days the problem starts to occur and I
have both the OP's problem of Emacs failing to paste from the system clipboard
and the reverse problem of Emacs failing to place cut/copied items into the
system clipboard.

I've found that I don't have to restart Emacs to clear the problem; I can clear
it (for a while) with a few copy/paste operations within Emacs. Of course that
barely mitigates the problem.

As I use Emacs to compose emails / news posts that and then have to be pasted
into web-based news/mail interfaces, this bug is a frequent annoyance.

I'd very much like to hear anyone's suggestions for tracking down the cause of
the issue.

Высокая духовность, да. И мифотворчество тоже высокое.

Это, кстати, говорит против теории о том, что наши думаки с матом борются, поскольку настоящими проблемами заниматься не допущены и имитируют бурную деятельность. У тех вон и так бурной деятельности навалом, а все равно борются.

Кстати, по поводу князя Владимира Азимов писал в комментариях:

The Order of St. Vladimir was a Russian military decoration. St. Vladimir (956–1015) was the first Christian ruler over Russian territory for which, and for which alone, he qualified for sainthood.

Каким образом мимо Азимова прошла связь Владимира с крещением Руси — непонятно.
