Model Railroad Operation Concept: Realism vs Compression

My Model Railroad has taken years to plan so far, and is still in the midst of a planning stage. One of the main sticking points is the decision to compress the layout, or have a more realistic layout. The choice of using N Scale is one many modelers make, because it allows them to get more layout in the space they have. This is also true with my choice. But how much compression is too much?

Culture vs Globalism

News of Trump winning the election in the USA has sparked some rather interesting displays of fear and hate around the world. It has been interesting, and even quite comical to watch how peoples worlds have been shattered. Am I a mean bully for thinking that way? Sure, maybe. However, I attribute a lot of the hate and fear mongering to those who may call themselves 'liberals'. I am speaking of the millennials, of course. Mostly those who are younger than 30, college educated, 'hipsters' who have yet to really venture out into the world on their own.

Surface Mount Repairs

I tend to enjoy delicate and detailed work. It is a challenge, and to me, that is what makes it fun. I treat surface mount component repair like surgery, using dental probes, and isopropyl, and cotton swabs... This, in combination with my self taught medical advice, has earned me a bit of a reputation at work as a Doctor. Not to mention the fairly well known fact that I like to collect medical items at home as well. My medical exam table is one such item, as well as my EKG monitors.
