Mine would be being confused for a goth. I mean I know that there are a lot of similarities but, SERIOUSLY!!!! And of course those people that glue gears onto water guns.

Is that so very bad?  Some water guns I have seen have had an interestingly Victorian look, and painted in shades of bronze and copper don't look half bad.

It's not the worst thing in the world, but there are so many other things that they could do with just a tiny bit more time and effort.

Hmm, I'm not so sure.

Glueing gears onto things is often a gateway method. Once they've dabbled with light things like that it's often a slippery path to making ever more interesting and complex things.

Fear not the gluer of gears, for all paths to creative greatness must begin somewhere.
