|Beads of sweat formed upon my knitted brow as I
inserted a new battery into the battery holder. The
top was placed onto the base.
There was no sign of life in the rotating box.
A second passed.
Another second passed. Still
nothing. I changed the
orientation, I spun the box by hand, I willed it,
through force of mind, to spin. Nothing happened.
How DARE it not respond to my mental commands.
Apparently, the circuit would run on ONE VOLT,
and no more.
