Comic Info:

I've learned so much from our designers, maybe more of *our* curriculum should be taught with song and dance routines...

A rather erudite person, explaining about capacitors, once re-purposed a line from the well-known remembrance hymn - "Time, like an ever rolling stream, bears all the charge away ..."

Other than that though, all the engineering songs appear to be either too rude to mention, or about drinking. The best I could come up with were some mnemonics, like the ones for resistor colour codes. And there are so many variations of those that it's hard to know where to start. On top of that, most of them are racist and sexist (so easiest to remember...) but not considered appropriate for classrooms.

As for engineers dancing - well, let's not go there, shall we?

In high school our Geology teacher was teaching us the hardness scale (Heh heh, "hardness") by using an easy to remember mnemonic.
"It's easy guys you just have to remember: Toronto Girls Can F... flirt... And Other Queer Things Can Do!"

I've always been fond of and have taught to students in the past "Black Beer Rots Our Young Guts But Vodka Goes Well."

Transformers! Inductors in Disguise!
Transformers! Swapping V's for I's!

(I trust most of you can guess the proper tune for this)

There are all kinds of opportunities for these if you put your mind to it.

I think you need to get your minion on film to do this one justice.

Anyhow, I remember in junior high doing biology were were drilled on "King Phillip Come Over For Good Supper" [Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, Species. woo!] and were expressly forbidden from changing those last two words.

My bio teacher was slightly more awesome: King Phillip Can Order Fairly Good Scotch. I'm having trouble coming up with a truly offensive use of the letters GS, but I'm far more innocent and mature than a junior high school class (colectively - less innocent than most individual members, but still far more mature.)

Books and Cons oh MY

HEY EVERYONE did you hear that I'm still alive somehow!? I have a new book! You can get it!

I'm customizing orders RIGHT NOW, every waking moment when I'm not attending thousands of conventions or working that full time job thing that I do. I was already at Emerald and FanExpo before I even had time to think about making this blog.  Next you will find me at:

Calgary Expo: Apr 25-27 (not the Thursday)

TCAF (Toronto): May 10-11

VANCAF (Vancouver): May 25-26

These events will be phenominal!! The last ones are FREE to attend! COME SAY HI :D

"But Jam will you be at _____??" I don't know! Probably not, nothing else for the year is planned or confirmed. I might throw something onto the list for fall but definitely not for summer. ALRIGHT, that's all, I have to get back to everything SEE YOU SOON!
