No, neither my grandpa nor his friend the surgeon. I wish! My grandpa really was fascinating. It was hard to pry stories out of him, unfortunately. And not because he was traumatized - just pure cussedness. He ended up on New Guinea for WWII, managing early computers (IBM machines) which ran personnel records on punchcards. Three of them filled a room and had the computing power of a modern calculator.
