Very fast is the answer, so take your eyes off the little dynamo for a few seconds like say 3 seconds “one two thousand two two thousand three two thousand” and you pride, and joy has pulled the television down on its head.

Retain your sanity at all costs
Retain your sanity at all costs I say to you. Ignore the fools that criticise and buy a good safe playpen. Choose your unit wisely and make sure it complies with local regulations.
