Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I LOVE the rule of two and a half!!!

I collect these these sayings.  It is the actual philosophy of the upper reaches of the producing classes.  I'll bet Charlie was VERY good at what he did.

Good luck on your project.  When you get it done, I'd like for you to see the class theory that evolves when you take the Charlies of the world seriously.

I'll bet Charlie was VERY good at what he did.

Well, without the selenium drum Xerox would not have had nearly so nice a photocopier and without P.C. boards they would have been much more expensive.  He was their "go to" guy, especially for materials science.  And Charlie, I hope still is a great guy.  The last time I saw him was , perhaps the mid 70s and his youngest daughter was about 16, his oldest child was mid-twenties.  His son and I did audio projects together.  I haven't been in contact since the mid '90s.
