  "Language is the most human & therefore most recent of our mental skills -- the one we share with no other ape. Language seems to come into the brain like an invading Goth, taking the place of other skills, & testosterone appears to resist this... it is indisputable fact that at the age of 5, when they 1st arrive at school, the average boy has a very different brain from the average girl." --- Matt Ridley 1994 _The Red Queen_ pg 257

  "In the presidential campaign the previous year [1932] he [Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR)] had vied with [Herbert Hoover] in proclaiming his devotion to 'sound money', which presumably meant the gold standard; OTOH, in January, 2 months after his election, he had said to a journalist that if the depression continued 'we may be forced to an inflation of our currency', which sounded like just the opposite. His intimates were all but unanimous in their agreement that he combined virtual illiteracy in monetary affairs with unshakable confidence in the superiority of his own off-hand notions about it to the accepted wisdom of the experts; that he treated the subject of money as a casual, rather amusing game that alternately bored and fascinated him; and that the game tended to bring out his strain of sophomoric humor." --- John Brooks 1969 _Once in Golconda: A True Drama of Wall Street_ pg151

Except that computer people use 2 as a base raised to multiples of powers of 10, instead of 10 raised to multiples of powers of 3 because powers of 2 are handier for them, but they also want to stay somewhat close to the values of 10 most folks are used to.

  "In 1909 the average profit on a car had been $220.11; by 1913, with the coming of the new, speeded-up line, it was only $99.34. But the total profits to the company were ascending rapidly because he was selling so many more... The price of the Model T continued to come down, from $780 in the fiscal year 1910-1911 to $690 the following year, then to $600, to $550, &, on the eve of WW1, to $360. At that price Ford sold 730,041 cars. He was out-producing everyone in the world. In 1914 the Ford Motor Company with 13K employees produced 267,720 cars; the other 299 American auto companies, with 66,350 employees, produced only 286,770. Cutting his price as his production soared, he saw his share of the market surge -- 9.4% in 1908, 20.3% in 1911, 39.6% in 1913, & with the full benefits of his mechanization, 48% in 1914. By 1915 the company was making $100M in annual sales; by 1920 the average monthly earning after taxes was $6M... The coming of Ford was almost perfectly synchronized with the discovery in the American SW of vast new reserves of oil. America became, with those discoveries, the 1 industrialized nation in the world with cheap sources of energy. Now every man could afford to drive an Everyman's Car." --- David Halberstam 1986 _The Reckoning_ pp 81-82
