Now looking at the potential of humans (including myself) with regard to understanding complex natural phenomena.

I'm trying to get under Tloml's Nissan to change oil and filter. Why do they put such tiny wheels on the new cars? Then there is a plastic tray so you can't get near the filter. I think I've got it figured but I wish I had followed through with the notion of digging a "Pit" in one of the bays in the shop - I'm too old for this crawling under cars but our mechanic is busy for a few days and the oil needs changing.
Where were the vendors hiding the meters?
Probably in a border town in Greece. If I showed interest in anything someone would call his brother-in- law and the item would be on it's way. It was a very "free market" way back then and I was responsible for a budget likely larger than that of the town I worked in. The locals noticed.
On the other hand it took me a few years to figure out what went on there. I'm still not sure.
It would be great if one of the folks I worked with there could find this blog and add some background (or foreground).
I had some phone numbers but things have changed
