Abstract I used to work as a machinist for a major steel company. I've always been kind of a hippy, and I wanted to work in a more benign industry. Where I used to work, we had contracts to make parts for bridges and dams, which I didn't mind that much. You know, everybody wants a house to live in and wants some electricity. When I found out that we were making cylinders for warships, I decided I wanted to move on in life.
