kotakat, what I find amazing is that as a nation in roughly the first half of the 20th century we accomplished many first rate scientific advancements, flight and the moon landing being noted highlights, and now a fifth of the way through the 21st century, we consider vaccines a deep state plot and can’t produce sufficient quantities of swabs to protect the health of our nation.

Good stuff and interesting. All of them worked hard in contributing to society in a positive way. They had ideas and talents which made them exceptional and defining their purpose. Creativity is a great gift to use no matter what the discipline is.
