Used a remote controlled robot to
make a 21st century breakfast

Repurposed a cargo net
into a rappelling line

Used a sharpening stone and cork to
open and seal a tube of neon gas

Used a tube of neon gas to withdraw
phosphorus powder from a vacuum

Neutralized acid using a pastry tube,
liquid oven cleaner, and low fat milk
