 THE SEX LIFE OF THE ELECTRON

by D.C. Current

One night when his charge was pretty high, Micro-Farad decided to seek a
cute little coil to let him discharge.

He picked up Millie-Amp and took her for a ride on his Megacycle. They
rode across the Wheatstone Bridge, around the sine waves and stopped in
the magnetic field by a flowing current.

Micro-Farad, attracted by Millie-Amps characteristic curves, soon had
her fully charged and excited her resistance to a minimum. He laid her
on the ground potential, raised her frequency and lowered her reluctance.

He pulled out his high voltage probe and inserted it in her socket
connecting them in parallel, and began short circuiting her resistance
shunt. Fully excited, Millie-Amp mumbled, "OHM - OHM - OHM - OHM".

With his tube operating at a maximum and her field vibrating with his
current flow, caused her shunt to overheat and Micro-Farad was rapidly
discharged and drained of every electron.

They fluxed all night, trying various connections and sockets, until his
magnet had a soft core and lost all of it's field strength.

Afterwards, Millie-Amp tried self induction and damaged her selenoids.
With his battery fully discharged, Micro-Farad was unable to excite his
field, so they spent the rest of the night reversing polarity and
blowing each other's fuses.

-- Philip Stortz--"In Germany they came first for the Communists, and I
didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a
Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn't speak up because I
wasn't a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn't speak up because I was a
Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up."

Holocaust, Congressional Record 14th October 1968 p31636.

I was a classmate of the guy who claims to have
written it back in 1976 at NAIT technical college.
I probably have one of the original LA30 copies printed out way back
then, before internet and e-mail were common.

When I saw 'milli Farad', I was reminded of it, and was amazed that
google turned it up these decades later.

It's been refined a bit from his initial version.

Now if only I could find the old CP/M file (pgmmr.txt) that has the line:

" If a programmer is indispensable, get rid of him as quickly as possible."
Lots of references to Weinberg's book, but no link to the
whole collection of quotes.
