    In 1960, any man sporting a mustache from the 1890s would stand out.

    Of course I would love power– then external sources, such as left wing presidents and congress would not have so much effect on my life.

    Did anyone notice the magazine’s cover? I don’t need power, I need that drug…Niagra? Or something along the lines of that name

    Well since this a a fantasy my dream Fortress or Castle would have its own nuclear reactor– better yet a star ship.

    When the ship lifts all debts are paid. (Lazarus Long.)

    What puzzles me about this ad is that if someone is interested in a method of obtaining power because it was “the result of scientific research”, then why would that person also regard a “Talismanic Seal of Luck” as useful? Of course, I’m not too puzzled; I presume it’s an attempt to cover all the bases.

    John: Maybe that scientific research concluded, that Talismanic Shield of Luck is a must in order to get power?
