I have no problems with jokes. At least this is a question and answer thread.

One more not so silly question
Is bootstrapping a dead technique or is someone still employing it in modern designs?

Why is it, "A penny for your thoughts," but, "you have to put your two cents in?" Somebody's making a penny.

Why do we Americans drive on the parkway but park on the driveway?

If you saw a heat wave, would you wave back?

"Did you sleep well?"
"No, I made a couple of mistakes."

The gain of an oscillator is said to be 1. There are many ways to get 1. Z x Y = 1 . Therefore if Z and Y could be made interactive, couldn't you create an oscillator without a stabilizing element?

I see them at gas stations quite often where I live...inside the stores. Do police run on coffee & donuts?

If you give a man a fish, will eat today.
If you teach a man to fish, eat all his life.
If you teach him to sell fish at wholesale, will be a millionaire.

If you use mechanical resonator it can be a stabilizing element itself.
