Question 1 of 42

1. Sometimes gadgets break. How do you deal with these moments?

Throw it out. Buy a new one.

Buy a new one, but keep the old one. I can still harvest it for parts.

Call a repair guy! There’s still life in this little gadget.

Gentlemen, I can rebuild him. I have the technology.

It probably broke because I tinkered with it. Keep tinkering until it works again.
