    Nope. Not at all. I am in the stages of trying to put a lifetime of THEORY into some real hands on practice!!! For that reason, I latch on to any old radio I can get my mitts on.... broken, half-broken, doesn't matter. I'm collecting them with the goal of getting them on my bench, figuring out what shape they are in, doing my best to figure out what is broken and fix it. The funny thing is.... it's just because it makes me giggle.

    So no. Taking things that don't work and making them work... is a pretty normal thing!

    Chill.
    If you look close you'll see Tweetybird "liked" the post you're upset about. He and everyone else knows it was just light-hearted humor.
