Anyway, since I'm using an auto-encoder there are things you can do and things you can't do and it's important when you hit a wall to allow it to be what it is (unless you want to suddenly shift over to HTML mode and fix it) which might be easy or hard or impossible. I prefer to stay within the bounds of Auto-encoders simply because I would rather spend my time writing rather than programming which might take 10 times more time to do.
Another thing from the 1950s in Seattle was that there were no yellow, green and red stoplights yet. They might have been in California and other states but not in Washington state yet. Instead we had what looked like railroad crossing things with arms that moved from Stop to Go and that's all. So, if you weren't looking you could easily crash into someone else when it suddenly shifted into Go from Stop. (the arms moved from stop sign to a Go Sign electrically and automatically just like the lights change now all over the U.S. from green to yellow to red and then back to green on timers.
Also, Boys in some ways were treated much better than girls in that girls often were treated like another species. And even the way you had to talk around girls or women was completely different than the way you spoke around boys or men. This was really really hard to get used to so if you made mistakes regarding the politeness shown to women you could be beat bloody as a boy any time by anyone nearby. So, at least where I grew up respecting women and girls while at the same time recognizing they weren't as tough as boys was just a part of what you had to get used to all the time.
Next, this is just after World WAr II when approximately 1 million Americans died in this war and 20 million Russians died etc. and it was almost as bad in China and Japan if not worse. To the tune of approximately 100 million people dying all over the world during world war II and another 100 million dying in the Cold War from 1945 until around 1990 as well. Both the Cold War and World war II were completely horrific. Viet nam war and the Korean War were both included in the Cold War by the way in casualties.
As I child and as a boy I was taught I that I likely would die fighting the Russians or the Chinese but it was more likely that all Americans would die in a nuclear holocaust. Try reading
