I once worked with an Italian Engineer.  We were tring to remove a gun
from a T.V. picture tube and we wern't sure how to break the glass bottle
to remove the desired item.  His solution was to put the picture tube
in a garbage can, throw rock into the can and put the lid on quickly.
(I didn't let him do it).

I began to understand my Alfa Spyder at a deeper level from that moment
