    And numerous less pleasant things, which I won’t bother enumerating.

    Chances are, some of them have already been covered.

    If I’m feeling especially sour later, I’ll list a few.

    The good news: some of those awful things in the past are now only in the past.

    North America’s? In Greenland?

    Built it in Greenland and then moved it to North America?

    I’m confused.

    Some people buy sod instead of planting grass seed and waiting because they can’t defer grassification.

    Our Biology teacher, Mr. Becker, made a risque joke about microscope slides that I didn’t get at the time.

    The classroom had two sets of slides of plant root cross-sections. They were of slightly different sizes, with the older set of slides being slightly larger. He told us to take care when putting away the slides at the end of class, to put them back where we got them.

    “You can’t put an old root in a new box.”

    Mike O’Brien were dissection partners in 11th or 12th grade Biology. We shared a cat.

    Sarcasm, right?

    I’ll assume the best.

    I can only hope that people realize the actual cause of the supply chain disruption, and not blame it nationalistic notions.

    Companies which switched to just-in-time inventory control underestimated the likelihood of an improbably-large delay in deliveries. So when governments created the disruptions in the supply chain by shutting down so much of the economy, they weren’t able to ride out the delays using warehoused parts/material.

    Companies that for years ate the cost of maintaining “too much” inventory were in a better position to stay in operation during times of supply-chain disruption. They could not only sell all they could make at typical prices, but even sell at higher prices.

    Of course, at that point, their reward for being prudent for all those years would not only be entirely justifiable higher profits to offset the lower profits from the years of investing in “too much” inventory, but anger from customers, and accusations of “gouging” from politicians — and possibly punishment.

    So, maybe those companies that supposedly underestimated the likelihood of an occasional supply-chain disruption did not. They knew their prudence wouldn’t be rewarded, but punished.

    You may not be right about that “thick as ever”.

    A friend from Boston with a definite Boston accent was told by Bostonian friends that she’d picked up a “southern accent”.

    This after living in the St. Louis area for years.

    Dodge is making classic Challengers. They just won’t be available for at least a decade or two.

    It’s so funny I remember it from when it was new.

    Well, newer.
