A kludger never abandons his tools. Mangling your toolbox is perfectly acceptable though. ~Not-So-Handy Andy

I know I had to give up on my dream of fixing ATVs to become a lowly neurosurgeon, but that doesn't mean I can't force my son to lead the life that I wanted.

I can't wait until adamantium becomes real so that I don't have to joke about that. ~Not-So-Handy Andy

Oh, he still had a hinge. But it was ten feet away and the screwdriver was literally right there. ~NSHA

Prolific hacker Craig Smith digs up a toy from his childhood:

About 1983, when I was fifteen, I dropped my dad's red Bakelite soldering gun and broke the casing. Of course he was upset, so I did my best to "fix it." So I took my original Star Wars Han Solo pistol and gutted it to hold the soldering gun components. I even ran the lightbulb up into the scope on top. The button on the handle worked well for the trigger switch. Ten years later, when the old house was sold, the gun wound up in my belongings. To this day, when an underpowered iron just won't do, I pull out the "Han Solderer" and get the job done. Half of me likes the mod, the other half is ill over the fact that I gutted my vintage Star Wars toy. What's done is done.
