The planets formed.  The Earth cooled.  Creatures emerged and one of them started playing with rocks and sticks.

That creature made spears, he crafted shovels, he turned pelts into cloth.  Then, he got fancy.  He built the solar-powered flashlight and the combination table napkin/necktie.  Not exactly useful, but somehow not altogether useless.  He created inventions that didn’t quite work…but were nonetheless fun.

Chindogu was born.
