Just like when I was building Mobile Homes in the early 90's. If a wall was not quite right, a forman would come over with a 20# sledge and make it irght!

Doesn't look like they're made of hemp, cotton and phenol resin anymore...but one never knows.
The essence of the mind is not in what it thinks, but how it thinks. Faith is the surrender of our mind; of reason and skepticism to put all our trust in someone or something that has no good evidence of itself. That is a sinister thing to me. Of all the supposed virtues, faith is not.

If I am not mistaken the trabi factory near Zwickau now makes boat parts. They are still able to make cars there and have some very neat hybrids that were never put into production
Funny thing is if you went to a GM/Ford/Dodge plant prior to 1980 you would see pretty much the same thing going on but not to that extent.
