You might be confusing hemp with the real McCoy, both are from the Cannabis family.
Now what does this have to do with electronics, oh ya, I forgot ... back to my lunch, yum.
I don't mean that vodka makes people strong. I mean it was belief then in Siberia that strong men drink vodka, while weak men use narcotics.

What does this have to do with electronics? Well, some people believe that passive components distort sound more than active components. Similar belief.

Don't you understand the monitor's problem impact for a free lance engineer obliged to work in various studios with various equipments ? All of us have very bad remembrance of the first time we where obliged to mix with UREI (too much presence -> mixes too dull) or Tannoy (Big sound -> thin mix).

Do I really look like an idiot?

I still don't understand what's your point. You either don't read at all what people write, or read more than we write.

Thank you John. My dad was sent there in 1947, convicted as "Enemy of People" (I suppose government was afraid of own officers because after they took Berlin they could take Moscow). First, he was involved in logging, made ties, built a railway line, and then was admitted to the "propaganda team", which consisted of the great actors, singers, and musicians. Propaganda team went to concerts in the zones and performed for other prisoners, guards and their beefy families. After liberation in 1953-1954 (after Salin's death) many of the participants of that "propaganda team" remained in the city working in theaters, schools, playing dances. From early childhood I remember the atmosphere of the holiday. Jazz Orchestra in a city park where my dad played accordion. It gave me the boost to accelerate, I was always dissatisfied with what I saw in everyday life getting duller and duller, always wanted something better ... I was not afraid of changes, because I saw better life... It was better for me, but not for those great talented people assembled in Siberia against their wills.

My grandfather, an apparent Communist follower, went back to the USSR in about 1937. He was REALLY sorry that he did so, but he had kept his Russian citizenship, even when he had been in the USA for at least 20 years. He could not leave, and he 'disappeared' soon after. I do have some letters to my grandmother, that came from Russia, sent after he went back. We know what happened, don't we?

Nobody knows yet.

"Dear colleagues are specialists in kimberlites, but not in impactides. And the application itself is similar to a public relations campaign to get a lot of money and spend it on something. Not like that, straight from the shoulder to say that Popigai impactides are twice stronger than synthetic diamonds. Case is that they are very diverse. roughly proved reserves is "ore", we still do not know how to share and how much we get "competitive material" in the output. even their mineralogical characteristics and technological properties need to be carefully examined, "- states in "Echo of Moscow" opinion discoverer of Popigai diamond, head of petrology VSEGEI Victor Masaitis.
