It's describing contestants on reality TV shows. The rule is that they must be so simple that if they sleep, they can't control their drooling, but you don't actually want them marrying their cousins live on TV.
I was brought up to respect my elders. I don't respect many people nowadays.
but you don't actually want them marrying their cousins live on TV.
That's only allowed on The Jeremy Kyle Show.

It's a restatement of Occam's Razor[^], which is the principle in physics and logic that the simplest model which explains the observation is probably correct. If it is any simpler, some observations will not be explained, and the model falls short. Einstein was rather good at saying things in a way that real people can understand.
My order for a reloading press and dies has been filled and will be delivered tomorrow!
The backordered shell holder to accommodate my favorite caliber has also shipped, though I can't track the arrival date (USPS doesn't do tracking).
All I need now is a source of powder and primers, both of which are out of stock at most suppliers. No worries, though. If all else fails, I still remember how to make nitrocellulose and mercury fulminate from common chemicals, and I have 5 lbs of mercury on hand to work with. That's enough to make a lot of primers!
Nope. We can buy drugs in Mexico, but not ammo. In fact, if an American drives across the border with a single round of ammunition, he can be imprisoned for years. They have strong prohibitions against gun ownership, which explains quite eloquently why the drug lords have all the guns. Real, honest citizens are completely disarmed and at the mercy of the cartels and their purchased police.
You have an odd definition of 'young' over there, but I will do so.
If I could just win a small lottery, my preference would be to deliver it in person, for no better reason than to hoist a glass with a man I've come to think of as a friend, despite the many miles and borders between us. But I'm guessing that the barriers raised against me actually carrying a rifle to you are far higher than simply shipping it. Am I right?
