At Airbus on the A380, the fuselages are split into sections and designed by separate teams. When they lined up the fuselage sections on the first couple of planes, nothing fits. Then they spend 2 months rewiring the connecting interface. I was there so I know.

He didn't just deliver the dogs: Like any good vendor, he also delivered the documentation with the dogs.
"Der Deutsche Schaeferhund in Wort und Bild" is a 800-page book written by von Stephanitz that documents the creation of the German Shepherd and which contains almost everything he knows about dogs. It's worth learning German just to read this book.
He collects wolves and dogs from all over Europe. Many contributed their genes in creating this new dog. He also gives very practical advice on every aspect of breeding and keeping dogs. The detail he goes into is amazing. This man knows everything about dogs.

I'm reading Steve Jobs by Walther Isaacson, his official biography. It gives the best insight ever into Jobs. He is a man obsessed with perfection, a tyrant, and the worst sufferer of fools you will ever meet, worse even than me.
More insight into Jobs. I thought he was spiritually more advanced than me when I read his biography two years ago. After all, he's vegan for most of his life, ate often at the Hare Krishnan temple, went on a pilgrimage to India, and keeps quoting Bob Dylan.
Well, now I know he's on a very, very low level spiritually. I was thinking today how it was possible for him to have associated himself so much with Eastern spirituality and have achieved nothing in that department. Till the very end of his life, he's the typical unconscious fool wallowing in samara and dukka that the Buddhists talk about all the time. Not even srotapanna level.
Coarse, egomaniacal psychopath. Not an ounce of spiritual awakening in him.

Jobs was really an unconscious being. There never was any hope for him.
The other person who is like Jobs -- doing all the spiritual stuff yet totally missing the point of it all -- is Elizabeth Gilbert of "Eat, Pray, Love".

You need only ask for a menu.
It's a publication meant to pander to the masses who are interested in "spiritual awakening." It has to be shallow, stupid and easily relatable -- because the world isn't exactly made up of intelligent people -- with the semblance of containing some sort of a profound revelation.
