For any sequence {ak} with sup 1/n ∑k = 1 n |ak|q < ∞ for some q > 1, we prove that 1/n ∑k = 1n akXk converges to 0 a.s. for every {Xn} i.i.d. with E(|X1|) < ∞ and E(X1) = 0; the result is no longer true for q = 1, not even for the class of i.i.d. with X1 bounded. We also show that if {ak} is a typical output of a strictly stationary sequence with finite absolute first moment, then for every i.i.d. sequence {Xn} with finite absolute p th moment for some p > 1, 1/n ∑ k = 1n ak Xk converges a.s.
