POTTER FRANKLIN, BOY GENIUS
Can I look inside your VCR? To see how it works? You don’t have to
worry. I won’t hurt myself.
When I took apart my Dad’s computer - it’s got wires and circuits
and screws and stuff, and that thing you put the CD in (which I didn’t know
you could break just by pushing on it too hard), and all those things they
stick in the back, and the fan, and the screen, and - anyway, when I took
that apart, nothing bad happened to me at all. Not even when I took apart
that big box the power comes from, the one that says "Dangerous - do not
open." Anyway, my Dad’s new computer works even better.
I have to look at stuff, because I’m very-very-very smart. So
someday I’ll invent something super important, like a time machine or a mind
controller or a really big bomb or something. So then you’ll be famous too,
because you helped me learn about stuff. See? That’s why you have to do it.
Don’t`worry. I know how. I’ll unplug it first.
Don’t worry. Really. I won’t hurt myself.
I never do.
