Electronics refers to the category of devices that are really expensive and break frequently. The term originates from the movie Tron which inspired scientists to try and make computers with little people inside them. In the course of doing this, then invented tons of tiny parts which were so small they could not be assembled by caucasians because their hands are too big. As a result, most electronics manufacturing occurs in asian countries. Contrary to popular belief, electronics do not require electricity, but merely become surly and refuse to work. Electronics are actually powered by magic blue smoke which is kept trapped within the device. In some respects this is similar to earlier deviced which used steam power. One of the more common causes of electronic failure is for the smoke to escape. Defective electronics will release their smoke and then cease functioning.
