    Well, that gets it right back at curiosity. So I was wanting to know, well, how does that work? Why does that work that way? And why does anybody really care? I can remember when I went to college, I went to become a mechanical engineer. They had these little things called chips, little circuits that they put inside of things that were just magic to me. They were little black boxes, and it just dumbfounded me how these worked.

    That bugged me and bugged me and bugged me, and I finally had a chance to look into it, and it just kind of sucked me right in, and I haven't looked back since. So it's wanting to understand things I don't understand.
