We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
--japanese do have a knack for engines. The A6M Zero fighter had a measly 950 HP and we had to go to the double-wasp wright-cyclone with 2200 HP (F6F Hellcat) to thoroughly whup it. And Hellcat had half Zero's 2000 mile range, and never could outclimb it below 14,000'.
