Yes, otherwise useless steel items are highly desirable for scrap. Pennies a pound. Looks like he has about 50 bucks worth. Hope he gets that much. I know what he has.

May be I'm on dangerous waters, as usual.
Perhaps this is a reply for my friend Stajo, to clear up some things.
My whole family has a clear anticommunist legacy, despite they didn't have any bourgeoisie legacy.
How many times I must have had to sing The Internationale, on school celebrations, when I was young.
How much I hated this, along with USSR's himnus, they were our invaders, if you didn't know this.
The fifth line, at least in Hungarian, always broke my fuse at that time:
"A múltat végképp eltörölni"
It is reversed to english something like this:
"The past must be completely abolished."
Original lines somehow lighter than this:
"Of the past let us make a clean slate."
If we can not learn from past (or our present), we have no future.
I'm afraid, this is the case.
See above, A Canticle for Leibowitz.

This immediately reminded me of a paper written by my friend Heinz von Foerster, Perception of the Future and the Future of Perception adapted from his address given on March 29, 1971 at the opening of the 24th Annual Conference on World Affairs at the University of Colorado in Boulder.

It is one of my favorite papers of his, although I have several favorites. It remains as relevant today, if not more so, as it did in 1971.

"This state of affairs makes it clear why I am concerned about perception when contemplating the future, for:
if we can’t perceive, we can’t perceive of the future and thus, we don’t know how to act now."

@WBS:
Too bad, download link doesn't work for me.
Of course, this is questionable, would I understand it?
