You have probably had the experience of buying a new car. You are super excited, you know exactly what car you want. All you have to decide on are the options. Should there be a Nav system or leather trim or leather seats.
But what if, when you get to the store instead of just choosing options you are taken to the factory. You are given all the equipment to assemble the car but you have to assemble the car yourself. Suddenly you are made to feel you need an automobile degree before you can get that new car.
