Who gives a damn whether what makes sense precisely, Carl?

Your idea that an anthropologist should become particularly overwrought
about something exciting happening in physics, or become so singularly
impressed by your own narrow focus on VAX/VMS because that is all you
get paid to do, pardon me, just leaves me wholly bemused.

I have two boys here who get far more excited about their Jason the
Power Ranger toy (you know, the red one), and getting a batman suit
for Christmas. Or do they?

All grist to the anthropological mill . . .

He who refuses to qualify data is doomed to rant.
