Reading this on a flight from Dublin to Charleston at the start of a two week trip away from home myself and in the middle of reading Gary North’s fabulous essays on the Biblical foundations of free-markets and a capitalist social order. Especially interesting in light of your and his tenet of the primacy of family as the fundamental building block of a successful God-fearing society. Also: my father - a gifted mathematician himself - taught me the superior value of a 12-based system of organisation and pointed to the imperial measurement regime which to his mind was vastly superior to the metric one - system for dimwits he referred to the latter as. Wonderful piece Scott and great advice.

Thanks for that. Loved the nautical navigation lesson and the 12 dad rules.
