    Так, просто, к слову Есть такой бородатый анек:

    - А Вы не знаете, почему пол-литра пишется раздельно, а полбутылки - слитно?
    - /*Ответ я забыл*/

    astronomer just recollected an old joke:

    - Do you know why half a litre ("пол-литра") is spelled as separate words, and half-bottle ("полбутылки") as one word?
    - /'I forgot the answer'/ (i.e. astronomer doesn't remember how this joke ends)

    And actually "пол-литра" is hyphenated.

    Now I'm curious what the answer is supposed to be in this joke. Does anybody know?

    I can share the grammar rule, though:

    "Пол-" (a half - from "половина") in compound words is spelled:

    HYPHENATED, if the next letter is
    1) vowel - пол-арбуза, пол-яблока
    2) "л" - пол-лимона, пол-литра
    3) capital - пол-Москвы
    *Exception - word "поллитровка" (half-litre bottle)

    AS ONE WORD, if the next letter is consonant (except "л"):
    полгода, полкниги, полчаса, полбутылки

    Wellll you should have. Because it was so incredibly obvious s/he was talking about that Taty song (and even if s/he wasn't), look what sort of useful discussion has come from it?

    I guess you just gotta choose your battles matey.
    Вот это да, я так люблю себя. И сегодня я люблю себя, ещё больше чем вчера, а завтра я буду любить себя to ещё больше чем сегодня. Тем что происходит,я вполне доволен!
