Submitter: Jan Noordam
Description: There was a time when our coffee and soup were dispensed by a diminiutive Philosopher with a warm smile and gleaming eyes.

(*) Apart from his spiritual wealth, Aziz also happened to be the richest man in the building. Obviously, this is not too difficult in a scientific institute like ours, but it somehow put a special perspective on things.
