Lightbulb no connections at all!

Dear group,

I have made the most startling discovery! I've built an entire amp where no connections are made to any of the tubes!
It works beautifully. All the tubes merely lay about in a shoebox, with a volume control glued to the front of it!

As I predicted, all prior theory on tubes was incorrect! They don't need to be biased, or have voltages applied to them, or even be in sockets!!!! I really am smarter than all those dumb RCA engineers.
My research shows quite clearly that bias, coupling, the behavior of capacitors, and current flow are all myths.

note: I may do an upgrade later on and scotch tape the tubes to the bottom of the box, because they do roll around quite a bit...
