I fully believe that. Also positive there are different unrecognized forms of autism, dyslexia, etc, highest in the very most creative people.
A hammer, violin, paint brush or pen and paper, we see people all through time with incomparable abilities; even with less initial exposure to one medium or another.
In other words, the teacher and the system in place may well had been those with limitations.
...we'll learn more by wandering than searching...
Took the high n mighties all kinds of time to determin what my "defects" were around 3rd grade. 5th grade teacher accused me of cheating when I got good grades on geometry tests in stead of the normal 0% to 20 something %. I still have no use for the individual. There really is a silver lining if you can look for it. The "dyslexia" still shows its self occasionally but my mind does tend to go on strike at a certain level of complexity. Simple computer programming I could do, with the more complex programming my attempts were so overly complicated as to be usually non functional. Just couldn't see the forest thru the trees. Found my niche as my bosses fixer-carpenter. Odd job for someone who sees the world in an odd way. Found my silver lining. Looks like several others here also have, it is good to have company.
I doubt if it will be built better or even as good as it would if I were paying to have it done. For one thing I would not have allowed it to be built from scrap, for another I can be a down right demanding tyrant when I'm paying for the labor because I expect anyone working for me to be proficient in their duties and to know how to do their job. Lastly having designed numerous pre-engineered structures the design would have been such that the thing would have been completed 6 months ago. but where's the fun in having something built for you.
We now use exclusively reputable Chinese manufacturers. We ask what they can do, they give us a list. If we want something special, it's a cheap add-on or even free. AND they ship early with boards that match our requirements.
Even as electronically challenged as I am I can print and etch a PC board albeit it would have to be a fairly simple one.
Hard to tell what I am doing in the photos but I am preparing to add an anti-room to the side of the shop to provide a space for the stairs to the school bus and a shop restroom. One pipe has a wheel welded to the bottom like all the rest of the posts have and one already had concrete on it so instead of breaking the concrete off I decided to just burry it the total size of the area will be 8ft by 15 ft
