— Lengthening a metal object! That’s the kind of thing that only my father could’ve thought of. He’s no longer with us. This torch shines weakly. My father attached this, made the whole thing longer, for a third battery. By the way this thing itself is an old Soviet item, if not from the 30's, then the 40's (…) But the beam was too weak for my father — so he lengthened it. Lengthening a metal item, that’s a hell of a job that my dad did! As you can see, he wasn’t a lazy man, he found time to do such damn work. In here went three Soviet batteries, Leningrad ones, by the way. It’s a touching thing. It’s not so effective really, but when you put it into words it becomes more so. Lengthening a metal object, I ask you.
