верблюд перед игольным ушком

Аммосов дает ссылку на забавнейшую статью Форбса о бизнес-школе Сколково.

Согласен с Аммосовым: там весь текст можно разобрать на цитаты.

"не задумываясь, увеличили смету на строительство здания почти вдвое — с предусмотренных бизнес-планом $130 млн до $250 млн."
для сравнения, моя alma mater: "1965 год — построено первое общежитие для студентов ФОПФ. 1967 год — в общежитие провели воду, свет и электричество. 1969 год — факультет окончил первый студент"

"John Harvard was not, as often said, the founder of Harvard College, but rather its first significant benefactor. Two years before his death the Massachusetts colony—desiring to "advance learning and perpetuate it to posterity: dreading to leave an illiterate ministry to the churches, when our present ministers shall lie in the dust"—appropriated £400 toward a "school or colledge"[citation needed] at what was then called Newtowne.[8] The childless Harvard, who had inherited considerable sums from his father, mother, and brother,[citation needed] bequeathed £780 (half of his monetary estate)[2] as well as (and perhaps more importantly) his 320-volume scholar's library[3] to what had been called the New College—which was soon renamed Harvard College."
