A long time ago (39 years ago), in a country far far away (I'm in Canada now, was in the UK), my dad decided he had no idea how to write BASIC on his new Sinclair ZX80. I took the manual and read it for a week without touching the small black obelisk. I took the small block of plastic, the manual and cables into the dining room and connected it to an old black and white TV and turned it on. As a ten year old, it was incredible to see a white screen and a small flashing cursor, awaiting my commands.

Okay, I'm going to get the most out of this. I shall play a trick on my brother...

10 PRINT "WHAT IS YOUR NAME?"
20 INPUT A$
30 PRINT A$, "IS AN IDIOT"
40 GOTO 30

"HEY BROTHER... COME see what I did...."

 

Haha kids are really inventive when it comes to harassing their siblings!
