She just buries her head in the sand like an off switch.
They're only ammeters.
I don't know watt I'm forgetting
My neighbour is dead against it.
... My neighbours dead against it.
The high voltages.
Apparently ‘with high voltage nipple clamps’ wasn’t the answer they were expecting
Years ago I used to use a LexisNexis database of companies that would give corporate information like name, address, and general business description. While most of them were pretty bland, there were a bunch of them with some really cheesy puns, and over a few years I built quite a collection.
Today I share with you "NEXIS IS RIDICULOUS.txt":
I was demonstrating for a physics lab today and we were doing an electricity experiment, building circuits and measuring voltage and current with various configurations of resistors.
One pair asked me to look at their results so I picked up the paper and started to shake my head with a scowl on my face.
Girl: What is it? What's wrong?
Me: It's these results.... they're shocking...
After a second of being genuinely worried, they realised I was laughing and looked at me angrily.
Guy: That was terrible.
Me: Sorry, I just couldn't resist.
I was working on disconnecting an old intercom system in our house when I explained to the wife that it's powered by a low voltage line.
Wife: Can't you just cut the power line?
Me: I need to disconnect it at the transformer where the power comes in.
Wife: Well where's that?
Me: Well they're hard to find because it's a robot in disguise.
My dad and I went to lunch today and I was telling him about the things we are learning in my circuits class. I told him all about voltage, current, circuit elements (this is ECE 101) and all kinds of stuff.
Then I start to explain Kirchoff's circuit law... He says "Not to be confused with Kerchief's law. You know, that law about blowing your nose the right way. I think his name was Hank."
He starts laughing as I groan...
My dad points out the humming from the light over the table, since it's a fluorescent light. He turns to my sister and says "do you know why it's humming?"
Now, my father has been an electrical/mechanical engineer for going on 20 years. My sister is 7, so I expected him to tell her about voltages and whatnot.
But no, he says "Because it can't remember the words to the song."
