Maybe I'm missing something, but what's a HAW? J mentioned it. Trying to piece out this fundamentally deep and meaningful conversation.

I refuse t' believe this!!! I feel like Mark Antony at Caesar's funeral as he gazes in to his friend's coffin, "Bear with me; My heart is in the coffin there with Caesar, and I must pause till it come back to me."
I'll have t' sit down with a mug of tea, and try and regain my equilibrium.

For the benefit of the uninitiated (of which, I find it inconceivable that there could be any), HAW is the English/Anglo Saxon abbreviation for Hirsuitum Posterious Weldercusi, which, in the now redundant language of Etruscatin* means: Hairy Arsed Welder(s)

* Etruscatin is or was, a hybrid language of Latin/Etruscan that flourished all but fleetingly, circa, 100 BC, during the death throes of the mighty Etruscan civilisation, and the burgeoning influence of the nascent Roman empire.
In 47 BC a group of Greek, Roman, Egyptian, and Turkish forge welders got t’gether and founded The Order of Hirsuitum Posterious Weldercusi. With the coming of the Renaissance, the Order was renamed, The Ancient and Noble Order of Hirsuitum Posterious Weldercusi. Of which, it is my honour to be, The High Grand Master.

Thank you, Vic. I worried for a moment that your representations of welding skill might slip ever so gently into the smaller-size technologies, and thence into electronics, from which it would be altogether to easy a tumble into digital gizmoleration, leading the unwary inadvertently back into dangerous proximity to the original topic.

Which would have been a fecking shame.

Young Master Philip,
apropos Brain implants...

Brain implants, often referred to as neural implants, are technological devices that connect directly to a biological subject's brain – usually placed on the surface of the brain, or attached to the brain's cortex. A common purpose of modern brain implants and the focus of much current research is establishing a biomedical prosthesis circumventing areas in the brain that have become dysfunctional after a stroke or o…

And it doesn't take much of a leap of the imagination, to be wondering if Samsung manufacture any of these widely used devices

My suspicion is that these so called HAWs left little tiny hairs in each Samsung device thus causing all the little explosions. Who else can we blame but the HAWs?

As to the déjà vu perhaps it's something from another life.

J, what do you mean by the red lion?
