This section proves that we can all laugh at our selves.

Today's scientific question is?


Hilarious, I call it Electricity for Beginners. Its from a University... So it MUST be correct... Today's scientific question is: "What in the world is electricity and where does it go after it leaves the toaster?"

Email Auto Responder Humour

One of the email lists I belong to deals in web design and normally generates about 30 emails a day. We help one another solve technical problems in web design, graphics, javascript and so on. I personally believe in the KISS principle and keep away from Flash, MP3 and that sort.

This particular day though, 27th September, 2000 one of the list members left an auto responder on so every post was automatically replied to - with subsequent humourous results.

Yes, I'm a Senior Citizen!

I'm the life of the party... even if it lasts until 8 p.m... I'm very good at opening childproof caps with a hammer... I'm usually interested in going home before I get to where I am going...

You could be like me!. Enjoy the rest of your day. - VK2TIP Yes, I'm a Senior Citizen!.

The Ionosphere and What to do with it

Before embarking on this in-depth study of the ionosphere it is essential to brief the absolute beginner on the basics of cosmology and planetarianism. This may appear to be complicated as indeed it is. Moving along quickly, there is only one basic fact which has to be remembered by the novice and that is that the sun moves around the earth in a 364-day geostationary orbit. When this fact is firmly established in the brain everything else will seem simple.

Aerials and where to stick them

There are a great many types of antenna and most of them function best when they are erect. This is because of 'standing-waves' which produce energy in a vertical plane. Energy in the horizontal plane requires 'lying-down waves' and this is why most of the radiated and received energy is termed 'ecstatic' rather than 'magnetic'. (Kirchhoff's fourth and fifth laws of self-immolation present a heated argument on this subject.)

The Dark-Emitting Diode

The world has been taken over by the L.E.D. They are everywhere - in every type of electrical appliance and, of course, they have multiplied like rabbits in Ham Radio rigs. Supporters of these insidious devices will argue that they draw very little current and therefore play no part at all in conservation of resources. I would argue in return that multiplied by a zillion these little lights suck out the power of a large nuclear power station. All for what? In most cases just to indicate if your rig is on or off.

The Chilli Cook Off

"Recently I was honoured to be selected as an 'Outstanding Famous Celebrity in my Community' to be a judge at a chilli cook off, mainly because no one else wanted to do it. Also the original person called in sick at the last moment and I also happened to be standing there at the judge's table asking for directions to the beer wagon when that call came over....."
