You can fly to the moon on...
« on: November 09, 2013, 05:05:09 PM »
Someone suggested doing a montage of clips were I've said "you can fly to the moon on..."
I think that would be kinda funny.
I can't recall what videos I've said this, but maybe I could crowd source this?
Can anyone recall the video numbers (and time mark if possible) where I have said this?

I guess you  could download the captions for each video (hopefully youtube speech-to-text will understand your accent  :scared: ) - then search the text file for "moon" and "fly" - should  be able to grab most of them.

YouTube Caption Downloader: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/youtube-caption-downloader/

I guess you could write some sort of script for it to speed up the process.

EEVblog #99 part 2 ($100 shootout) at 32:16 wrt to the Ideal 61-342 using 5.5mA. 

Yes, I have watched the $100 multimeter shootout a lot of times.  I can't wait for the next one!

Usually I've noticed you use it in reference to something with a horrible quiescent (is that how it's spelled?) current or something that draws mA rather than uA when idle.

Or is that the only thing you use that phrase for?

Anything that pisses away current unnecessarily.

I just watched this video with captions turned on.  :-DD
You can't write comedy like that. I laughed so much I'm crying.

"haitian aunt had six blocks or something like that"
"standby counsel is think head inspires the hat"
"clock big real minds panel sweetest mechanical road which guzzles went back to the mines album in the back"
"michigan state it does not make sure no one is around for chilean kasi without his"
"steams easily ladies its increadible knocking on martin"

I left out the part mentioning white house and subway attack. I think this YT captioning might be to aid the NSA in monitoring subversive videos. Or more likely it is to totally confuse them into chasing their own arses.

It's not quite good with my American Bostonian accent either.

70 watts. You should call the montage that.

Any others?
I'd be surprised if there weren't at least double digits.

You should have a tally in the corner that totals up the waste that you uncovered.

Have you really said it so many times? I only remember a couple.

"You could fly half way to the moon on 4 mW"

At 5:15

I did a search for "standby" which I suspect probably mentions more than one trip to the moon.

http://www.youtube.com/user/EEVblog/search?query=standby

This one is the one I'm looking for with the above search, which of course contains a 6.5 W trip to the moon at 2:15.



This concept could btw be expanded to other Dave-isms (or I guess really, aussie slang.)
Whoa! How the hell did Dave know that Bob is my uncle? Amazing!

Hi Dave,
would like to see you reviewing a modern Rohde & Schwarz device. Belive me, i use analyzers like the ZVL13, FSP7 and generators like the SMA100A couple times per year. I don't want to know how much standby power they consume. The waste of energy even is signallized by an indicator LED near the power button. :D For luck they have a real power breaking switch at their back near the IEC input.

Feels that way. I have a feeling it's at the very least a half dozen.

I think it's mentioned more often in the Amp Hour. Wasn't it part of the amphour bingo?
