Has anyone else tried to make the spyglass? I find the directions horrible. Steps are missing and I can't figure out how to make. It seems like it is written for the child but makes no sense. If you (the child) covers two equal sized tubes with c . . .

How did everyone cover this? I'm not sure whether I want to not even mention the lawsuits or skip him entirely or mention the lawsuits but avoid detail. Right now I'm thinking I will just say that what makes people great is that they can accompli . . .
