@Caleb: This was pretty cute. I didn't see the punchline coming.

      Good! :-)

I have to mention though, that the watch is working as they walk away without the battery!


Maybe I should have shown them walking away high-fiving each other or something ... but I liked the look of the hollogram ... so I just decided that it was running on a small back-up battery for a few seconds :-)

@bwmetz0: I thought the punchline was going to be that he had a suitcase full of the things and he was weighed down by all the dough he was raking in from other yuppies.



That would have been a good ending also ... but I think I prefer mine :-)

I noticed that too.  Perhaps it's operating temporarily on stored capacitor power, or even wireless power from the battery pack.  :)

I would add one more slide to this where the Yuppie is giving back the watch to the old man for the fear of carrying that heavy suitcase

If you were such a clever old man, would you take a check for $1M from a yuppie who has nothing better to do than stand around in the street?

@Warren: If I play the old man can I keep the watch?

This would be the mock-up watch I'm going to fabricate on my 3D printer (when it arrives), in which case the answer is "sure" (I can always "print" another :-)
