Man, this is one great piece.

You're a dreamer, B Kean !! Perhaps in a previous life, you lived there?

When I was young, I was also given an ultimatum by my wife. I had just been offered the first spot on Canada's yet-to-be-born astronaut program but it would have taken me away for long stretches from my newborn family.

I chose my wife.

PS I was always nauseous in the vomit comet, LOL.

All the best, you former Leningrad entrepreneur !!!
