Bonus question from Sean Burns:You’re stuck in Zimbabwe on an African vegetable remote control dune buggy safari, your dune buggy breaks down and you are only left with 17ft of gardening hoses, a box of old vhs pornos, a battery powered my buddy doll that speaks 7 languages and a table fork, are you able to get the buggy running again?
First, I would barter for parts I needed with the natives using the buddy doll to translate and the vhs pornos as merchandise. Then before you know it, bingo bango, I’m back in New Hampshire.
