    During the Second World War, air force technicians stationed in Alaska and Greenland were amazed to discover how quickly local Eskimo/Inuit volunteers could pick up all the abilities they needed to keep aircraft engines functioning.

    The southerners never realized that the Inuits’ very survival depended on thousand year old high technology.

    Must have been a very old joke. All the support centres now are in southern India.

    I continue to use Windows 7 (since Windows 8 was such a dog’s breakfast that they skipped 9 and Windows 10 is spyware) but my all time favourite Microshaft operating system was DOS 5.1.

    It was lightning fast, bug free (unlike DOS 5.0), and it would do almost everything Windows 3 would do on a much less powerful computer.

    … our POTUS is the best!

    I know this is a silly question and I do not expect a reply but … do you really believe that or are you just trolling for fun?

    I agree with most of what you say. Putin certainly won the 2016 election but is not likely to win this one. His puppet should, however, be able to muddy the waters so much that right wing wackos will never admit it was a fair vote. America has been in serious trouble at least since the Tea Party managed to drive responsible people out of the Republican Party.

    The Democrats should have clear sailing ahead of them but keep eliminating exciting candidates from the field to push for living fossils. Boring and brain-dead ain’t a safe choice, folks.

    As for the Anti-Christ, I have not believed in God since I was twelve. I do believe in Jesus but feel that if you wish to understand what he was doing, you must learn about Judas Maccabeus. Yeshua ben Yoshua was trying to do to the Romans what J. M. did to the Seleucid Greeks.

    I am going shopping later on today. Before I enter the store I shall put on a clear plastic face shield. It is as effective as a mask and I find it more comfortable.

    Why do this when, so far as I know, I do not have CoViD19 and neither will the people around me? Because I don’t know either for certain. Because I want other people to wear masks. Because wearing masks has come close to eliminating CoViD19 in Canada while not wearing masks has brought the disease surging back, stronger than before, in so many parts of the USA.

    Canada has not done a very good job with the pandemic. Because of weak leadership (like you) we were very late enforcing social isolation and mask wearing — but we did learn after a while. Three or four weeks ago we passed 8800 deaths. Today we are still below 9000. (That is the equivalent of 81,000 in the US.) Terrible but improving.

    Perhaps they are the “bricks” she was missing when she first needed therapy.

    How many mistakes can you make in a femtosecond?

    Bet I’ve got you beat!

    With 86,420 seconds in a day …

    60 seconds x 60 minutes x 24 hours = 86400 seconds per day.

    And needles.
