Well, that might work, but its also possible this thing doesnt use any electricity at all. This is a world with magic after all.
s also possible this thing doesn
Or maybe electricity is just part of what makes it tick? Maybe Magnetism? Some other mystical force? Maybe all of the above? They live in a world where both exist…
“Getting it working” is not the same thing as “learning how it works” any more than putting fuel in the tank of an internal combustion engine or charging the battery of an electrically driven device will tell you how it works. All you will learn is that it does work,and how to turn it on. Just because you can drive an automobile doesn’t mean that you can build one.
On the other hand, if being able to use it is all you want, then you will be happy–and Rao will be frustrated.
If we were to drop advanced technology from today into a medieval village, like say a motorcycle, eventually after much trial and error, they will get it running and working, that’s a step in and of itself, *but* to know all the intricate components and why they do what they do, and what they are made of and how it all truly works 100%, takes a great deal more effort. Turning the key in the proverbial bike is a natural, and good start. If they can…
You’re a fat funny fella , Rao : trying to “wake up” something when you have no ideas on how it’ll react
Watch it Panther! Rao might just try to squash you with that mega bunny jump he did earlier if you call him fat!
Rao’s definitely a BIG BOY, and he is certainly rotund but saying he’s F…A….T is still pretty disrespectful. It’s best to use terms that have less of a negative connotation, especially since it’s very easy to offend someone by calling them FAT.
While my word choice, Rotund, can mean fat, and Rao is likely more than smart enough to know this, the word makes more of a reference to his roundness, which I’m pretty sure he’s more than willing to crack a few jokes about.
He’s a drabbunny “of size”.
Well ; there is “normal” , “chubby” , “fat” , “huge” and “macro” . Choose the good term
I think Rao’s line of reasoning is that this thing will be easier to reverse engineer if the thing is actively helping him, he probably thinks it has a simple system that will allow him to basically get the device to disassemble itself in some way for him to better take a look at its components.
That’s an interesting take! I imagine we would need to attempt a back engineering approach for any exotic advanced technology we came across too.
RIGHT THEN! let give this jalopy a jump start!
Unfortunately this thing doesn’t come with a convenient hand crank (that we know of).
I’m half-expecting Rao to just pull an MRI machine out of nowhere at this point
If anyone could invent a crazy use for a MRI machine, it would be Rao!
Careful Rao, last time you called one of your tools “handy dandy” it was the screwdriver that snapped. Don’t want a similar thing happening again.
Reasonable idea to try and recharge it; they can’t see it’s inside but maybe seeing it in motion could give Rao clues as to how it’s made up.
Indeed. It’s one thing to have to replace a broken screwdriver, it’s another to have to replace much more expensive machinery!
A simple jump start, what could go wrong?
I’m more worried about what they’ll do if things go right!
Maybe, freak out, jump a bit, and find something to hide behind, or just try and be friendly to it, that seemed to work last time
I was wondering what that box was. Thanks for explaining it, Rao.
