    PFFFF I built my BEE hives out of baby bones and the blood of the undead. Do you think I needed instructions then? No, I just knew how to build it. And by baby bones I mean wood, and nails. By blood of the undead I mean paint.

I've never heard of any instructions that say "hold together with duct tape" or "put beer in freezer to get it cold faster."
    Cheers to that! Instructions are for the weak! I remember reading something about assembly and instruction creation in Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance about why instructions never make any sense; but I can't remember what it said right now... So I'm really of no help.

    Reminds me of the old Maxwell Smart approach - "Shoot now and ask questions later". I have to read the instructions. This way, after I screw it up, at least I have something to say to my wife when she asks whether I read them or not. It helps put a spin on things!
