The asbestos underwear should be unnecessary, unless for other, more
recreational purposes (I've heard people are a little more liberal out
in Vancouver).

I think that anyone who lived through the excitement, hope, and
disappointment of the AI craze in the 1980's (academic) and early
1990's (commercial) would have to be very foolish to make any
different claim unless they could back it up with running,
production-grade software.

All the best,
