My dad had lots of tools so he taught me to use them. He'd putter with electrical stuff and forced me to take an electronics correspondence course in my mid teens. Anybody remember The National Radio Institute?Phil, I think you may be allergic to any technology... You cute pups don't have a bunch of knobbery and switchery and do not come with manuals that you are never gonna read anyway.....
He repaired band and orchestra instruments for his schools, did some cabinet making, repairs around the house..yard tools, car repairs. A GI from WWII...it seemed kind of natural to guys in that era..especially from the south I guess. So it's second nature for me as well. Gadgets always seemed like an extension of my abilities. Was big into comics as a kid. Tools just seemed like a way to be a superhero. Like an exoskeleton of stuff that amplifies your abilities. That's what they've always been really. Even Neanderthals had a level of technology.
It was status quo for about 90,000 years though.
