It so happened though that last week, just prior to the war, I was
looking at Google Maps at Georgia with my boss who is from there and it

You must be a stupid engineer then, because politcs and technology have been attached at the hip since the 1st dynasty in Ancient Egypt.  I guess you missed that one."
