Explain it to me like im five....

i'm thinking of starting to build home made guitar pedals. but i have ZERO idea where i would start! i dont know how to solder, or anything about schematics, or any of that stuff. if you have any information about building home made pedals or th like, just drop a line, and you can help this n00b know what the hell he's doing

Like you're five?

Put that soldering iron down! What have you done to your father's '52 Goldtop???

You said "like I'm five" - if you were five, and trying to make an effects pedal, that is probably how our conversation would start...

It was supposed to be a joke.

Ok, you want to start a lemonade stand. Your parents give you five dollars. It turns out that you only spent 4 dollars. Instead of giving back the dollar you could spend it on something else. If you give it back your parents will think it only cost 4 dollars, so next time they will only give you four.

so what your saying is i need to spend that extra dollar? ON GUITAR STUFF?!
Sounds like a good plan to me. It's just what are you going to get for a dollar... I know, an extra e string...
It's a quote from "the office" of Oscar explaining to michael what a surplus is.
I must have missed that episode.
