In a moment of high tension he must have thought that made sense, but he's currently in jail.

Ohm thinking that resistance was futile.
 
2012-07-10 08:08:37 PM
He's going to get inducted into jail.

Shocking

Deputies immediately contacted the power company so they could shut down power to the area to prevent the man from electrocuting himself.

They missed their shot at the ultimate tazer.

Watt? Ohm, I'm very shocked.

/AC what you did there, Subby

There's a certain code of conduct you should follow in situations like this.
 
2012-07-10 11:03:03 PM
Probably just a phase he's going through.

I don't mean to be negative, but I find this revolting.

Sounds like he was doing the Electric Slide! *guffaw*

Reading these electricity puns is so funny it hertz
 
2012-07-10 11:15:51 PM
So Denver had a power outage??
 
2012-07-10 11:17:12 PM
Will he be hitting the lecture circuit because of this fame?
 
2012-07-10 11:17:40 PM
Ohman, climbing such a tall coulomb in the middle of a field must have given him a big charge. I bet the decision to reverse direction and go to ground really hertz him, even though he was pretty much forced. At least he got to be a hero faraday. He had potential, but now he's just another schmoe in a cage, currently waiting to appear before a circuit court because of the way he conducted himself. What a pile. More power to him.

Tesla rocks the sky, no?

So do I.

Indubitably: Tesla rocks the sky, no?

So do I.


P.S. You can defeat a man, but you will never defeat an idea...

P.P.S. M-particle out.

No subby, resistance is potential verses intensity.
 
2012-07-10 11:25:04 PM
Watt the hell? He probably had an inner voice telling him... "you conduit"

Hmmm. Enough for now.

Yes Mr. Edison, alternating current can be dangerous at high voltages.
 
2012-07-10 11:26:21 PM
I hope he doesn't do this with frequency.

He didn't think pigs could climb.

I seem to remember Cable Guy ending this way, but maybe that's just because by the end of the movie I wanted to see Jim Carrey get eloctrocuted.

Dohicky is an official term in the national electrical code.

Resistance IS futile!
(if less than 1 ohm)
 
2012-07-10 11:35:58 PM
Surged?

Surge arrested.

He doesn't sound well grounded. I hope he's able to transform to increase his potential.

Or else?

Deputies utilized a "precision immobilization technique" maneuver to stop the vehicle. That is where a law enforcement car bumps the back side of a fleeing vehicle, causing the driver to lose control and crash.
If they intentionally hit my beautiful car with their piece-of-s*h*i*t pigmobile, they'd bloody well pay for the damages - or I'd take it outta their hide!!

Check your fuses, b/c I'm about to overload your breakers, friend...;)

The title of this thread induced me to post here. I can now see that this was mutual among Farkers.

OK, now you're just showing off ..

He is so grounded.

Story deserves th "V=IRd" tag, but I have the capacitor to see why it didn't get it.

NetOwl: Story deserves th "V=IRd" tag, but I have the capacitor to see why it didn't get it.


I could see a P=IE or an E=IR, but engineers don't like pie in their ear. Besides, this is clearly a case of E=IZ and any work done by the person in question must be derived off of phase angel.

\V is volume, btw you silly engineer. A physicist told me once, and so did the NEC.

Engineer?

It's worse than that. Math. That means I have to endure nonsensical notation that changes every couple of pages.

$\mathbb V$ would never be volume, though. Fancy fonts (blackboard bold or fraktur or whatever) tend to imply larger objects, like vector spaces.
