The Tinkerer's Handbook, Page 1 (of 8)
Whether sendup, parody or satire (or all of the above) this looks darn funny. I’m there!
Tinkerers can bring great efficiency. I had a service call where I had a spare fuser, sensors and rollers that dispatch thought would fix the problem.
I fixed the problem with the spring from a ball point pen.
They get the parts back. Everybody wins. Except the pen.
Beautiful, hilarious, brilliant!
I like the comment at the bottom:
“Over 2 projects inside”
Let me guess…there are THREE???
At least two and a half!
I love the typesetting. Why did we stop doing it like that?
If one cannot take a thing and at a time and place of his choosing disassemble its decorative outer structure, in order to amend or simply observe and appreciate its innermost pieces and workings, then that thing is not one’s own!
“Let Us Meddle” Hee! I don’t know why, but I find that funny. From now on I’m not working, I’m *meddling* with my car, computer, etc!
