On top of this is the widely reported problem of "shortage of skilled workers" caused by a combination of agism and lack of willingness to pay them to do the job, not an actual shortage of skilled workers.
For example, today's news is that we are importing medical staff from Portugal, because the local people cannot survive on the wages, and the Portuguese cannot imagine how high living costs are here (especially housing and travel).

They were extremely useful for one particular application, and indeed the best available solution in 1963, but the 60's intervened, and I don't actually remember what the application was (LSD was legal then) - I vaguely recall I was working on a time machine when I first heard about tunnel monodes.

Intelligent life in a radically different environment, might be radially different:

Maybe there is life at a density close to that of intergalactic dust, and its all around us. However, the lifeforms are so huge that we are like stomach bacteria to them?
