The Machine 2000 was an invention by Jo Evil. It was an automatic baking soda volcano. It won 1st prize in the science fair competition, so Joe who competed with his Inator, lost. Jo Evil has since then gone on to make inventions for the good of his half of the Bi-State Area. They see him as a good leader and his weekly broadcasts let them know if there are any problems. On the average day he makes 2 good inventions and 3 to test stuff.
