In the 90s I bought a used HP PC. The previous owner had been chain smoker, so it reeked. I took it all apart and cleaned it with solvent in my driveway, and so got to see all the details of how it was laid out and assembled. A really nice piece of engineering. Now their stuff is crap :-(

I don't have a bucket list, I have a post-bucket list. So far it includes
1) Coroner's report is to read "Death by misadventure."
2) Dixieland jazz band at my funeral.
