Bo kneels in front of a large burlap sack. It is still bundled up, as he spent the night cradling it in a fetal position. He opens the long, rough drawstrings.

“Ah.. Let’s see. Lots of copper tubes. Which one.”

The Kung-Fu master digs through the piles of tubing.

“This one maybe. Ok. Let’s say it’s this one. A fair decision made quickly may be better than… um… Something. Not important right now.”

“Apply clamp 3C to beaker 12g using clamp… what is that? 9f… I think.”

Bo stares at the pile of parts.

“I need a drink.”
