    Is it solder that makes the perfect little round balls.
    Maybe a blacksmith made ball bearings by mistake by seeing
    little round balls from heating certain metals.I know I have
    seen perfect round balls from heating something metal.
    Maybe from welding,inform me.

    Do we really have to answer that? We all know what the answer is...

    It would make more sense if the question was "Do you know where you have that salvaged charger plug from the old Sony Vaio?"

    I'm sure there must be one of them flux capacitors in my car - I pop the hood and all I can see is engine and mechanical goings-on. My first car was a '68 Ford and I could clearly see all the parts - carburettor, air filter, spark plugs... and not a computer box in sight!

    I used a flux capacitor once.

    Now here I am, stuck amongst the barbarians.

    At least they are good barbarians.

    A greek poet once wrote a poem that is too long for me to translate in word, but I will give you the general meaning:

    "-Why is everyone gathered in the streets?
    -Because the barbarians are to come today.

    -Why aren't the senators legislating?
    -Because the barbarians are to come today.

    -Why is the king sitting over the highest gate, wearing his crown?
    -Because the barbarians are to come today.

    -Why is everyone, all of the sudden, so worried and confused? (Their faces became so serious).
    -Because it is night now and word from the border says there are no barbarians anymore.

    -And now what will we become without barbarians? These people were kind of a solution."

    I find myself saying that catchphrase quite often.

    It go back to zing/zang ,China. Greek metholgy how does it compare.
    What does America have,Its so young In thought.America,greed vs greed.
    Quote from Loosewire[ Older world societies used symbols to speak the
    truth,to keep there heads, Americans use greed in place of the truth to
    take your valuables In full view of public trust. Americans are silent partners
    of greed In hope of the American Dream.] Define American Dream.

    Don't be so hard on yourself, all of the modern societies work that way, that globalization for that, for bad or for worse.

    And a note: the poet I quoted is a modern one.

    You did not compare the past and present,coming from what you think.
    Nothing heavy,you live in the shadow of a great past,you could have
    a voice of the present.When you look around what do you see and fell.
    I see greed.I'm not being hard on my self,I find alot of ways to enterain
    myself. I consider myself as a poet,I have written some great lines.
