Oh, the joys of home ownership.
Need to install a new garbage disposal (old one made it about 18 years). Done.
Need to fix a broken bathroom faucet. Need to replace the valve/float system of a toilet to stop it running. And that’s on top of replacing a septic pump last August. Houses are sort of like boats in slow motion – an endless repository for money and time spent on maintenance and repair. Yet what is the alternative? Renting, where you are at the landlord’s whim, and gain no value from money spent? Trade-offs, always trade-offs.
I.e., life happens.
I quite imagine that a space ship, even a sentient one, is in many ways the same. Especially if it’s a warship.
