I understand that your young, but understand that the satisfaction of buiding your own is worth more than the bought items. Imagination is what stimulates the mind.
You know War Horse,... you're absolutely right. There is a rush of accomplishment when you figure it out with what you got. Sorta like those guys in Apollo 13! Can't get everything at the Supermarket,... and even if you could, what's the fun in that. It also kinda makes you slow-n-sluggish when it comes to figuring stuff out. Point taken! What I was really tryin' to do was to contribute something. I had been doing all the taking, and I just figured I'd try and switch it around for once. Sorry!
