4.0 out of 5 stars Crumpler; quality that does not disappoint, 14 July 2011
I have a Crumpler laptop bag and by now that bag is about 6 years old and has been used under the harshest of circumstances; Sudan, Eastern Congo, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Papua New guinea, etc. I end up in interesting places that demand a lot of the things you take with you. But no problem for a Crumpler.

With that in mind, I bought my wife this laptop bag.
The material is everything I'd expect of a Crumpler. The finishing is great and the velcro closes the bag well.
There is a space for your laptop (though a sleeve is still advised), a space for papers and a small pocket (roughly 15 x 20 cm) for pens and stuff with a zipper.

Two side-notes though;
- There is only one small pocket inside that can be closed with a zipper. If you need more security, perhaps look for a Crumpler with a zipper to close it;
- This bag is easy to overload. It will not be a problem for the bag, but it might be a problem for your shoulder. There is no padded shoulder piece coming with the bag. So if you overload, you'll feel it. Also; when overloading you cannot close the cover anymore - given the velcro is only a strip of about 5 cm high - and you have a risk that things might drop out. Again; get a Crumpler with a zipper of plastic clips to close if you look for more security for your stuff.
(Or just don't overload your bag...)

5.0 out of 5 stars Crumpler quality as expected, 14 July 2011

With that in mind, I bought my wife this laptop sleeve. And yes, it is as sturdy as expected. Thick, elastic material, well built and a zipper that looks like it will outlive both me and my wife. If you look for the lightest and thinnest sleeve around; this is not it. If you look for sturdy materials and protection; this is it!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Synchronicity à la C. G. Jung, 14 July 2011
Not always satisfied with the causality of things and the underlying statistics, I am reading up on alternative explanations for relationships that are seemingly a-causal in nature, but feel to have more importance than a relationship based on chance. The concept of Synchronicity is surely an interesting one to dive into if you recognize yourself in the previous sentence.

True, there is quite some (basic) mathematics used to explain his ideas and to cement the foundation for his work. I actually like these explanations, because it paints a good picture of the times in which this concept was developed and it also shows that C G Jung is not just a theoretical scientist, but a practical one using common-day examples in his analysis.
The mathematical foundation takes about 25 pages of the 115 pages of the main book; as such it's not that you have to skip half the book if this part does not interest you personally. And honestly; the concept of chance explained by three matchboxes and white ants was an interesting one and I will surely use it as an example when explaining statistics and chance to others from now on. Very visual.
