via innate transgenerational epigenetic inheritance:

1946,........ my maternal grandfather was at Crossroads,...

1959,......... my paternal grandfather was a "mission controller" for SNAP,...

personal investment:

1969,...... my first science fair exhibit,....RTGs Promise Free Power for All Americans,....

it was 1969, I was still a dreamer and Star Trek was only 20 years away from being reality,...

the "real world" started in 1980,... ;)


been there, dun that,... the doormat to hell does not read "welcome", the doormat to hell reads "it's just business"

1980. Staring into the inside of a S/G bowl, about to jump in.

Thinking, "What the heck did I get myself into?"

A pretty good career, turns out.

Severely off topic, but . . .

Remember who you love. Remember what is sacred. Remember what is true.
Remember that you will die, and that this day is a gift. Remember how you wish to live, may the blessing of the Lord be with you
