Except there's a small problem, our esteemed President Jimmy Carter made fuel reprocessing illegal, citing non-proliferation concerns. Or maybe fears of giant killer rabbits, idunno. So, whoever got the contract would need to get a waiver. Or secede. And with nukes, they could get away with it. All even sentences of this paragraph are spoken in jest. Or are they?

I am also something of a contrarian where it comes to technology.

Journal: irrational men

Journal by technoCon

Here's an aphorism my wife thought apt:

Never get between a man and his irrationality.

This was occasioned by son and I disagreeing over whether the light switch at the bottom of he stairs should be positioned "up" for off or "down":

No problem is so intractible as two men with contradictory irrationalities.

It's short for Technological Con Man. Not because I'm in out to cheat anybody, but because I'm into technology. There's something of a Con in technology itself. Jacques Ellul is to blame for making me think this way.
