"Accidental" Calculator Recon

Okay, so last night I say down with a calculator to try to figure out what I owe in taxes...half way through calcuations, the calculator blew a fuse (?) and stopped showing the digital printout for the third and fourth digits.
Out came the paper and pencil...figured out the math.
Then sat looking at broken, cheap-ass calculator! Looking and plotting...
OKay, tore it apart into little pieces, which was great fun after an evening of math!
Then I took all the pieces, and made:
three little robot magnets from the non-numeric keys by gluing them together and adding wire arms and legs!
two glass pendants which i painted with craft paint!
a set of numerical magnets for my grandson to use to practice fridge math!
There is also a funny looking textured rubber mat which I am using for a jar opener.
Not bad for a broken, cheap-ass calculator!
Now the taxes, that's another story...
