Filip Pavlovich Tupikov was a brilliant artisan and a skilled natural philosopher, but had no understanding of how the world worked. When Boris Ivanovich Petrov introduced Bernie Zeppi to him, he argued that Petrov should have recruited an up-timer with keener knowledge of modern advancements. Petrov, having heard similar thoughts from many others, sarcastically pointed out that it would have been impossible to convince any of Grantville's real experts to come to Russia.
