He used to fiddle about with 'em and show us how they worked; but he never seemed to do much except fudge his reports from the Nilghai.
Он имел привычку постоянно играть этими вещами, показывать их всем и рассказывать о том, как ими пользоваться; но что касается работы, то он ничего не делал, а только списывал свои сообщения с донесений Нильгаи.

you are a fiddle for God to play on, and however much your superstitions mask and alter it, out of those strings now and again will come some squeak of truth.
Для бога вы всего лишь скрипка, на которой он играет, и как бы сильно ваш религиозный фанатизм ни искажал ее звуков, струны порой говорят правду.

So they fiddle around with the numbers, putting a higher mass into the new particle, and after much effort they predict that the proton will decay at a rate slightly less than the last measured rate the proton has been shown not to decay at.
Тогда начинают подгонять числа, повышают массу новой частицы и после больших усилии предсказывают, что протон будет жить чуть дольше, чем время, за которое, судя по последним экспериментальным данным, он не распадается.

She took to playing the fiddle and went wandering through tunebooks tracked down in secondhand bookshops, the tunes sticking to her like brambles on a walk across a cliff-side field.
Овладев игрой на скрипке, она пускалась в долгие странствия по страницам песенных сборников, найденных в книжных лавках, и мелодии оставляли след в ее душе, словно сок диких ягод на юбке, когда Джейн бегала к утесу через поле.
