That you wear.
Interesting. I wonder if it's still used. Hofmann said ergot was being investigated for obstetrics because the midwives had used it from ancient times for birthing problems. An example of how an unbroken folk tradition is to be defended at all costs. We haven't been doing such a good job of it here, but the Swiss . . .
Very good. Apple has a ways to go when it comes to longevity. But then it's a new developing field, whereas mechanical timekeeping is mature.We need better ways of generating and storing electricity also. The hundred-year iPhone. I suspect the silversmith's son would be into it.Humankind, as well as Steve Jobs and the personal computer industry, owes its greatest debt to Albert Hofmann and his wonderful employer Sandoz of Basel, for the enhanced vision provided by the...

I winced at that too, of course, being the fascist liberal that I am, but I had my hands full with Apple ][ and his Aussie bootlicker buddies. Thanks for pointing it out, agree completely.
He wasn't talking about a girl, he was talking about women. You just illustrated that you're squarely immersed in a male supremacist culture. You can't switch the comment around as if you're dealing with equal players, when one is "a girl" and the other is "a man."God, have we ever gone backward since the 1970s. Read your Germaine Greer, it's very entertaining. She's Australian, by the way, so she knows what she's talking about when she talks about immature jerk-off men....
