12 years of isolation in a terrarium.

This video's youtube comments are top notch.
[It is a] fact beyond question that soldiers' battles, where one side is entrenched and invisible and the other advancing in attack, are things of the past, except in a wooded country or where all preliminary movements are concealed. We had soldiers' battles here, but by fighting them the lesson has been taught which the world will learn.

All that talk of killin' Jews and Ordinary Men wasn't on the source list? A little suspect if you ask me.

For people who are single and living on a tight budget, this looks really cool.
It really does.
I’m glad kriegs said “attractive doctor.” The whole time I was thinking, This video is from 2015. I bet she’s not living there anymore.

I believe the phrasing was 'attractive doctor chick.'

I knew someone was going to add the 'chick' but I thought it'd be someone else. 😂
I meant she's probably seen a flood of young suitors since that video came out!

One of the quotes from the video: "I mean.. come on. The guy jumped on top of the B26 from the roof of an ice cream truck. He also fired the flamethrower into the street before jumping off."

Freeze-frames from that video clip will make some great 2020 memes.

However, are there not some people who are equally both? Or, is that not possible?

Sure, I'd agree with that. I think Musk was just trying to make a pragmatic distinction rather than a philosophical one.

I agree with Musk, based on my experience. I also think both are needed. Scientists tend to mainly speak science. Engineers can understand science speak AND translate the science speak into practical applications AND sell those applications to laymen with the money to fund both the science and the engineering. Synergy at work!

Family legend has it we are distantly related to Lord George Murray (who my grandfather was supposedly named after), participant in the battle of Culloden, and sixth son of John Murray, 1st Duke of Atholl. That branch of the family came to America after a 12 year old boy was kidnaped in 1720 by Brittish sailors/traders in Edinburg. I believe he spent his early years as an apprentice to a Presbyterian preacher before migrating to what is now West Virginia. Thanks for the beautiful Ella Roberts rendition of Loch Lomond and dredging up my family memories. I'll have to have a wee dram to celebrate later today. The photography in the YouTube video is a lot more spectacular than I remember Loch Lomond being from my vantage point. 8)
