 The pope died on Sunday.
 
-It didn't bother Rachel Southern too much. She was half-Catholic, but if you asked her if
-God indeed existed, she would say: “Even if God existed, he would not expect us to believe
-in him”. And of course she didn't buy an artificial division of him into three parts, even
-if she believed he exists. And so she went on her way to work on Monday, on what seemed like

 the start of a perfectly typical week in the life of a female American bachelor in her twenties.
 
-Rachel did not admit it a lot, but Monday was her favourite day of the week (while she hated
-Wednesday the most). It was not that she didn't like the weekend. But she loved her work enough
-to appreciate the beginning of the workweek in which she worked. She liked Monday
-the same when she studied in college, only now she loved it more, because she preferred
-working over studying.

-A graphic artist such as Rachel, could not afford herself to lose a single moment from
-that precious day which is known as Monday. In order to maneuver between four different
-software applications (Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photosop, Corel-Draw and GIMP) on what
-was in her own words “that excuse for an operating system also known as Windows 98”
-required a large amoung of patience and tolerance. Rachel had a severe lack of those
-qualities, but she actualy loved graphics. Nevertheless, at her home, she had many T-shirts
-with that perhaps-Penguin-perhaps-Duck, to signify her hope for better days.

-Anyway, that day, Rachel was able to catch an early bus, and reached her work some time
-before its start, in quarter to nine. She lay down her backpack, and turned on the computer.
-She checked the E-mail, went over her task list, set up the daily schedule and then
-decided to prepare some fruit tea to start the day on the right foot. Therefore, she
-walked to the kitchen. A few of her colleaugues were at the kitchen discussing what
-seemed like the event that took place the day before.

-“Well, in my opinion, Cardinal Averus has the best chances of being voted as the new
-pope.” said Adam Grinsky, who was another graphic artist who worked in the company.

-“I'm not sure about it.” said Eva Hallworth, who was an accountant. “When the late
-Pope was elected, most people thought his chances of getting elected were minimal.”

-Rachel went to prepare some Almond tea, and activated the electrical computer, even though
-she was almost certain it had enough warm water.

-„אה, רייצ'ל, “ פנה אליה אדם, „מי לדעתך יבחר לאפיפיור הבא?“
+“Ah, Rachel, ”, Adam told her, “who do you think will be elected as
+the new Pope?”
 
-„לדעתי, האפיפיור הבא הוא משתנה אקראי פואסוני עם תוחלת של 0.7, כאשר 0
-הינו החשמן אברוס, אחד הוא ... “
+“In my opinion, the next pope is a Poisson random variable, with a
+mean of 0.7, where 0 is Cardinal Averus, 1 is…”, said Rachel.
 
-„האם אי-פעם תפסיקי להדגיש את העובדה שאת בוגרת מדעי המחשב?“
+“Are you ever going to stop stressing the fact that you are a
+Computer Science graduate?”, asked Adam.
 
-„הזמן בו אפסיק זאת הוא משתנה אקראי מעריכי עם תוחלת של 5 שנים.“
+“The time I will stop that is an exponential random variable with
+a mean of 5 years.” Rachel told him.
 
-„מה זאת אומרת?“
+“What does it mean?” asked Adam.
 
-„זאת אומרת שלא משנה כמה זמן עובר, הסיכוי שאפסיק בפרק זמן בעל אורך נתון
-נשאר קבוע.“
+“It means that no matter how much time has passed, the chance I will
+quit within a given time frame of a certain length always remains
+constant.”
 
-„זה לא נשמע טוב.“
+“That does not sound good.” said Eva.
 
-„זה לא.“ אמרה רייצ'ל כשהיא מרימה את כוס התה שלה. „זה מאוד לא.“
+“It doesn’t.” said Rachel, as she lifted her cup of tea. “It really
+really doesn't.”
 
 רייצ'ל ניגשה למחשב שלה, והתחילה לעבוד עליו. הייתה לה תמונה שהייתה
 צריכה לגמור ב-Illustrator אבל באותו זמן גם קראה את ה-E-mail שלה.
