    This picture is terrifying is a lot of ways! Big Karen in the background is giving the "stink eye" to those two actually working. No gloves and both wearing rings, no proper hair nets. The one on the right has an adhesive bandage on her hand. It looks like a pretty dim room given the effect of the flash used. Everything is galvanized and there's a wood roller in the middle, difficult or impossible to sanitize - a word you would likely have to define for everyone in the room. It makes me really queasy looking at it.

    I am always thankful for the people who are willing and able to do these things.
    It's not my cup of tea.

    Great picture - emergency battle surgery in a family residence. I was one year old. Small village at the time, northern Finland, now a small town. Soviets were attempting to "annex" Finland through invasion. Finns destroyed a severe part of the soviet invading army, and the soviet cut and ran. Finland's ugly neighbour is now called russia, and has never bothered Finland since. Of course, there's no trust towards putin, nor towards his buddy drumpfh - who now calls himself trump. Birds of a feather.

    I tried to find some info on the cable road. The only thing I could find was in the Scientific American and I am not a subscriber.
