If they only shipped tubes (valves) in that gel .....

The industrial glass thermometer guys could save a lot of money using this to ship to and from Calibration labs. The death rate is very, very high.

great demo by the way John. How did you find it?

Hi Cal,
Thanks. I guess the question was simply a muse since it dealt directly with the topic at hand. I am still amazed John remembered it, and that you also remembered and found it.

Thats the problem, I cant remember what I went to the kitchen for.

What I'm looking for in the supermarket is a mystery to me.

BUT, ask me about something strange I saw on the internet and its crystal clear!

I particularly enjoyed these although they have nowt to do with audio but they are engineering related, humourous and diy.

This was one of the Qs for an entrance test.

The student that passed the test wrote...
The concrete floors are incredibly hard to break.

Another Q that I remember was...
In which state is 'Bay of Bengal?'

Enjoy
