Default Harmon Kardon tube amp kit testing

Thought this pic might give people here pause for thought, or at least pause.

First person I showed it to was the wife.

She could only shake her head and laugh.

Cheers

That's funny in a not-so-funny kind of way because I work for HK. Bet my wife would love that one

Default Lawnmower ad

I remember there being a lawnmower no where's near as long ago as that HK ad, well after the women's lib movement of the 60s and 70s.

There was a woman that tested the pull starts of a lawnmowers (Honda?), and if they started with on pull, she said "Ship It".

If anyone is totally offended, all they have to do is just watch this woman do her thing.

Or, how about this one?

Examples like this are a dime a dozen. Where are the "stupid Men" videos?

Who would have thought we would have a woman running for president when this HK ad came out? It just goes to show how far we have come. Or have we?

There was a feature article in one of the electronics magazines of the 60's (Radio Electronics maybe) where they got a "typical housewife" to build a Heathkit stereo receiver. I think that the only problem was the dial cord.

I must admit that I got Sherri to test build some of my early kits (like 20 years ago). Don't do it anymore because she got too good at it.

It all has to do with the 'hard wiring' within us, and dependent upon what we did, division-of-labor, for the last several hundred thousand years.

Man = hunter, tool maker, and visualizer

Woman = gatherer, child rearer, and vocalizer



Hey George, did you revamp your Simple SE amp page this last weekend? I was in the middle of printing out the project and putting them in a notebook folder, and when I went back to double check the printout with the page, they were different on several places.

Or was it just me? I thought I was going nuts there.
