Did you know that you could put 26 marbles and a small plastic horse into a DVD/VCR, then remove said items and the machine will still work? Of course, you have to be sure that you remove the 26th marble and the horse before it will work as it is designed. Just removing 25 marbles whilst leaving the 26th marble and the horse will only cause the DVD player to make horrendous noises and lots of sputtering on the screen.
Ah, it's good to have Emma home. :o)
