His thumb tipped her head back, exposing her throat, his mouth clamped to her skin, his throat working as if he were devouring her, feeding on her, drinking her in.
Он откинул ее голову назад и прижался ртом к коже у горла, словно пил ее, поглощал, питался ею.

Not being a big believer in "rules of thumb" (there are exceptions to every rule), I don't have any rules of thumb for when to use (or not to use) a B*Tree index.
Не слишком веря в "простые" правила (из каждого правила есть исключения), я не использую никаких простых правил для определения того, когда использовать (или не использовать) индекс на основе В*-дерева.
