When I was a child I used to take everything apart - toys, radios, electronic components. I didn't always have the skill to put them back together again. All I had was an insatiable curiosity. This frustrated my dad no end.
Heh. Me too, everything I could get my hands on, although I always put them back together. Mom got pissed when she caught me with her entirely dismantled "fancy watch" laid out on the kitchen table in front of me (I especially loved taking apart tiny things) I was probably 9 or 10, I told her to relax and I put it all back together and it worked fine, after that she would ask me to fix things.
It was cool, I'm quite handy.
The taking apart and seeing how things work is the most important part for me, I MUST know how things work, once I know, I generally lose interest and don't bother putting it back together unless I have to.

I'll wander over there on a rare occasion, but I generally lurk instead of post (unless something arises and gives me the opportunity to be snarky without having to know anyone, like BlackMage's typing thread! ).
I'm established here and feel at home here and it's faster paced, which I like.
