Just watched Nebraska which hits the nail on the head repeatedly. Probably won't win much; nails don't much any more. At the age of 9 I learned fast and furious the essence of a nail. I spent weeks on end picking them up in the nail room of the old lumberyard learning the difference between common, box, penny, galvanized, cement coated, tapered, cut. By learning that nails were different at age 9 I quickly learned people were different. The carpenters that came in and I watched who was neat and who wasn't. I picked up after the slobs. Later saw their work. Sure enough.
