do you suppose that also applies to .....

driving a car (w no automatic transmission, power steering/brakes) ...

hand/cranked can openers ...

navigating a boat (sextant, lat/long, tacking, etc, etc)

orienting by sunrise/sunset? (or the north star?)

preparing raw foods NOT out of a can or box?

 or ... voting sans political advertisements TELLING you who to vote for!

For those who recently joined this group... this is pretty much a "room of requirement" type group that we only use for occasional hangouts. Don't expect to see active discussions here. Just setting expectations :)
