Default The Jack Bybee NAQ (Never-Asked Questions)

The Jack Bybee NAQ (Never-Asked Questions)*

This post is a departure from the usual FAQ concept in which commonly-asked questions are grouped together with answers, to help people having the same questions. Instead, the NAQ idea gathers together previously-provided answers to questions that were never asked in the first place. Why would anyone answer questions that were never asked? Well, just because they were never asked doesn't necessarily mean people aren't interested in the answers! So let's get on with the Jack Bybee NAQ.

Q: Who is Jack Bybee's lawyer?
A: Jack Bybee's lawyer is Jack Bybee.

Q: You mean Jack Bybee is a lawyer in addition to being a physicist?
A: No, this is another Jack Bybee. The post excerpt below explains this**.

I have met him and had lunch with him, and he is the guy who will conduct the lawsuit, if it becomes necessary. It has happened before, and the effects were serious.
Q: What kind of cars does Jack Bybee drive?
A: Jack Bybee drives a Mercedes and a Bentley. More information is provided below.

Q: How many horsepower does Jack Bybee's Bentley have?
A: Jack Bybee's Bentley has 651 horsepower. See below.

Q: What kind of car stereo is installed in Jack Bybee's Bentley?
A: Jack Bybee's Bentley has a Naim car stereo. See the reference below.

Q: Does Jack Bybee's Bentley use Sequerra spark plugs?
A: This is not known.

Q: What was Jack Bybee's relationship to Richard Feynman?
A: This has been mentioned in several contexts, which I've included below. One post uses the term "internment", while another says "consultant", so the exact nature is not clear.

He explained that, in some detail, to me, this morning, not 10 minutes ago. It will have to wait for another response in future.

Q: Has Jack Bybee ever made any significant profit from his sales of audiophile accessories?
A: According to one account he has not. See below.

Other interesting questions could be brought up too. One might wonder, "How many miles does Jack Bybee drive his Bentley between oil changes?" Or, "What brand of battery does Jack Bybee's Bentley use?" One might even wonder, "What color socks does Jack Bybee prefer?" Unfortunately I don't have the answers to these questions.

This is rather funny but you obviously have loads of time to kill. Unless of course you're writing a book about Jack Bybee.

I use Dick Sequerra's spark plugs in my Porsche 944.
Jack Bybee turns 80 years old, this month, and he still finds my amps hard to break-in. I happen to know that his ability to hear audio differences is greater than most people here, even at 80 years old. Quite an accomplishment.

But what spark plugs does Jack Bybee use in his Bentley? That's what I'd like to know. Also, does Dick Sequerra sell his spark plugs through J.C. Whitney?

It's public? Seems too small to be public. Looks more like the scam that my former employer tried to rope us into (stock options for which the number of shares outstanding and other key metrics were kept secret).

It is a fact that Jack Bybee knows Dick Sequerra, but they are not close friends. Dick Sequerra has used Bybee devices, and essentially knows how they work. He clued me in, years ago, but I am not going to divulge what I learned from Dick.
It is a shame that you, Andy_C, are so closed minded in your opinions that you cannot conceive of a better spark plug.
