    Looks like the electrical system diagram for the P-3 Orion!

    I do not think true north works that close to a coil. And the square root of 2 volts is really just not going to become 120v going through that whatever. I guess we could connect a quadrilateral with three known resistances and applying a voltage between a pair of opposite corners and find out.

    But the real question is, where is the switch to turn it on?

    Not to mention at least 3 thingamabobs and a 1,000 gigahertz zapper.

    I think I worked on this installation right behind this guy, it looks familiar ! Seriously, every once in awhile you come across someone who does work like this. I wish I had taken pictures of some of them when I was working. You 'sparkies' know what I'm talking about.

    It's missing the plumbers helper microphone diaphragm aka Electo-voice SP15trxabcdefg+++qrxtuv !!!Therefore distortion will be over 1000% and dangerous to your health and sanity !!!

    Now I know why the lights went in the middle of the Super Bowl game a few years ago. **** Engineers.

    If you’ve ever drawn a circuit on the back of a bar napkin, you might be a lectrician

    Jerry I drawn many a Diagram on paper towels. Usually in a building far away from writing pads or memo pads. Also made many on a piece of cardboard box I tore off.

    Remember, Murphy was an optimist.
    The glass is always wet.
    No good deed goes unpunished.
    To err is human. To really screw things up requires a computer.
    To render any task impossible takes a two year engineering study, 6 signoffs and a legal opinion.

    I have several electrician friends. I honestly think that every one of them believes that drawing a diagram on a bar napkins clarifies it immediately.

    Used to carry a schematic of a simple NO/NC circuit in the wallet. Drew it on a piece of cardboard from a contactor box. Kept it to remind me of what I didn't know starting out and to give the young guys a break.

    It spawns this question from me; "what's the difference between an orange"? ;):p:D

    So, lets take a candid look at the leaders of this country the next few years. A sizeable subset of them are the folks who show up at the BLM led parades, notice I did not say protests. Not to suggest they lack in intelligence, but just a query.

    So, how many BLM protesters can draw a basic circuit? You know a wire with a battery on one end and a resister or bulb and then back to the other side of the battery. How many know the difference between parallel and series and how does that effect voltage?

    So, if any get beyond that, then how many can tell you the power of a coulomb... is equal to 6.28 x 10 to the 18th power (billion, billion) electrons. For example, if an object gains one coulomb of negative charge, it has gained 6,280,000,000,000,000,000 extra electrons. Now ask them how big an electron is.

    All you lectricians know it is too small to see, all you engineers know it is not round, or not proven to be, and all the BLM people would think maybe you could take a picture and then zoom it on your phone so you could see it. Now ask them what color it is to the human eye visible spectrum. Whuuuttt?

    Now just exactly what jobs do they have now and what value is that to society? I would really like to know how many work and what they do. All work is honorable but I am just curious.
