Does the Samson radar really go ping like a sonar? Priceless!

If you were a Civvy that would be believable.
However, I'm interested by the statement " if you can fix a bike, you can fix a car". Last time I checked Arnold Clark where overwhelmed with 12 year old mechanics because they were proficient at spraying the chain of there BMX with WD40.

As a Clanky, I'd agree with the bike/car observation, it's just a basic process. Few of us nowadays start ripping car engines to bits & machining, polishing, adjusting & refurbishing the gubbins, we just unbolt one lump & swap it for another.

And copious amounts of HBM Ninja, jobs not done unless maskers is used and there's some bits left over for the odds 'n' sods drawer.
Ah yes. Sign of a good engineer: A running machine and a bucket half full of "left over" nuts, bolts, washers and thingymajigs. It proves the mechanic was better at his job than the design engineer.

OK, sometimes the kit may leak a bit, maybe explode, etc., but it still kind of works with less bits.

The notion that engineers 'fix things'.

A good engineer will aim to prevent 'things' from failing in the first place through understanding the detail of and the science behind the kit. Okay, the master race, failing to understand its limits or heed the advice of the engineer, may break it anyway.

I spent most of my time fixing things because the glorified taxi driver/ bomb courier in the front is also a charter engineer, apparently?

I say fixing it, mostly cleaning the plugs to prevent writing no fault found!
