Cheap Model M, just needs a clean:

I'd almost be willing to bet money, that a swab of iso alcohol on a Qtip would get those sticky keys going again, and if so you'd have a very cheap model M on your hands.

I think it will take a complete dis-assembly (requiring a bolt mod to get it back together) because the 3 membranes are probably going to need a good soak to get rid of the dried sugar-water that is probably encrusted on and between them.
"Narcissistic symbiosis refers to the developmental wounds that make the leader-follower relationship magnetically attractive. The leader, hungry for adulation to compensate for an inner lack of self-worth, projects grandiose omnipotence — while the followers, rendered needy by societal stress or developmental injury, yearn for a parental figure. When such wounded individuals are given positions of power, they arouse similar pathology in the population that creates a “lock and key” relationship. “Shared psychosis” — which is also called “madness for millions” when occurring at the national level or “induced delusions” — refers to the infectiousness of severe symptoms that goes beyond ordinary group psychology. When a highly symptomatic individual is placed in an influential position, the person’s symptoms can spread through the population through emotional bonds, heightening existing pathologies and inducing delusions, paranoia, and propensity for violence — even in previously healthy individuals. The treatment is removal of exposure. Briefly, if one cannot have love, one resorts to respect. And when respect is unavailable, one resorts to fear. Trump is now living through an intolerable loss of respect: rejection by a nation in his election defeat. Violence helps compensate for feelings of powerlessness, inadequacy, and lack of real productivity. He is certainly of an autocratic disposition because his extreme narcissism does not allow for equality with other human beings, as democracy requires."
