    other than that, i also crashed toys, for vintage effect or worse .. decay is exciting. new things are boring and impersonal.
    yea exactly, it's the curiosity of what's inside and how it works. I was actually thinking reverse engineer and you read my mind.

    Well, when i played with legos i never made them the way the were ment to(exept one pirate ship when i built it the first time). With other toys when i modified them i had a plan how im going to modify it before taking it apart.

    Allso when something that worked with electricity broke, i allways had to put it apart and harvested everything that could be used later. i think i still got some small electric motors and stuff like that somewhere lol

    I deconstructed to construct something different than what it was, originally.
    I remember ripping apart my lite brite toy and then trying to build an egg incubator over my bathroom sink.

    It's in my nature to see unusual potential in ideas, things, and people.

    I did that occasionally. Thing was, I was pretty bad at putting things back together.

    Construction, on the other hand, I did quite a lot of. I'd build little houses and boats and towns out of toothpicks. I was much better at that...no external schematic to follow.

    I remember that when I was a kid, I assembled an extremely weird Meccano toy car whose motor transmission wasn't to the wheels, but to a metallic rotorcraft placed at a 45 angle from the floor. The result was a light vehicle that showed little strength but that ran quite damn fast in a flat surface.

    I was never a fan of deconstructing objects.

    Ideas, however.

    Fe = 0

    I thought this was going to be a thread on literary criticism.

    I did that a bit, took apart a few things I didn't care about (I wouldn't have been able to replace them if I broke them so I only did it with things I knew I wouldn't miss). It was interesting!

    No, I didn't like to take things apart. I was more into combining my toys into one massive playfest. Giving my action figures playdoh clothes. Having my lego monster destroy a racecar set. Hanging my barbies by the neck to have them rescued and then dumped into into a makeshift lake by a drawing of a horse. And so on. Lots of make believe. And everything got anthropomorphized.


    But I did a lot of amateur chemistry. And I was obsessed with viewing things under a microscope.


    My deconstructions were less literal. I asked 'why' questions constantly. I still do this.
