    Gerald began to fumble. He didn't really know what it did, since he hadn't actually built the machine. Instead, he'd stolen it from a young Lenny that he presumed was entering the same contest. The Lenny went away crying, and he didn't have to do a project -- a win situation for him. Gerald wished now, however, that he would have tested it out first to see what it did...
