It follows from the Ramsey theorem that every infinite sequence of elements of a finite semigroup has an infinite factorization of the form x, e, e, e, ..., where e is an idempotent of the semigroup. We describe all semigroups with this property and ivith its analog for tim-sided infinite sequences.
