Each profession will have its own menu in restaurants



Vladimir Odoevsky : Philosopher
What does this mean? — the traveller asked on reading the heading – "pricelist for Historians" Yes! I forgot that in your hemisphere, there is a suitable dinner for each profession. I have heard of that, but you must admit though, your way of doing things is a bit odd.

– the fate of our patria, — the barman replied — seems to be that it will never be understood by foreigners. I know that a lot of Americans have made fun of our establishment, but only because they don’t want to try it for themselves. If you think about it you’ll see that it’s actually based on mathematically sound ethical principles: the price list for each profession is related to the amount of good that it can bring to humanity.
