Usually it’s things I find for free and imagine I can fix them or make them better, similar to the way my relationships work. The last thing was a computer monitor I found in a dumpster. I fished it out with a wire coat hanger and bought the plug and connector cheap direct from China on eBay. After waiting over a month for international delivery of these items, I hooked everything up and was presented with a display of blinking and shifting horizontal lines. Modern art!
