Yeah, tho a pretty well made one. What tipped me off is that using an actual pole pig casing would likley be way too heavy for this. Excellent dad prank tho.
I thought it was a prop made from cardboard or something.

I suppose someone wanting to do that for real could really up the impressive factor by making the insulators longer and hiding opposite polarity Tesla coils in them.

To be accurate, that XKCD should really be
  - Make me a sandwich.
  - What? Make it yourself.
  - Sudo make me a sandwich.
  - What's the password?
  - Correct Horse Battery Staple.
  - Okay.
but it'd mush the joke. :(

Fans of Star Trek asked US President Gerald Ford, through a letter-writing campaign, to name the orbiter after the television show's fictional starship, USS Enterprise. White House advisors cited "hundreds of thousands of letters" from Trekkies, "one of the most dedicated constituencies in the country", as a reason for giving the shuttle the name. Although Ford did not publicly mention the campaign, the president said that he was "partial to the name" Enterprise, and directed NASA officials to change the name."

And the whole scheme backfired in the sense that Enterprise never flew in space--it was only used in the 747 drop-and-glide tests in the late 70s.

Not sure if this belongs here or in the cat thread, I'm going with here since the cat (symbol) is only a small part of it.

Pretty sure the cat thread is supposed to have cats that are still alive. This one has only a 50% chance of that... tho i suppose if you tell people not to look at it then its still fine.

You know you're already old in your mid 20s when you see #eevblog and go "How do you post memes on Internet Relay Chat? Oh...Twitter...of course."

True but it did go to Vandenburg for trial fitting to test if it could launch from there. None of the other orbiters made it there

(For those that aren't aware... "Pondering My Orb" memes are suddenly very hot right now.)

I just loved, when one of our executives got their new flashy 4K screen laptop, just to realize, that SAP frontend has 0 scaling capabilities, and the entire UI is the size of a postage stamp. Had to get himself an external 1280*1024 monitor just for that.

I can confirm pencil leads and lab power supplies are plenty of fun when bored in engineering school.

Vivado when spending 15 minutes synthesising my design only to tell me I have a DRC error before going onto the multicore implementation?

Or am I just bitter?

...snip...

What is the story regarding the poor quality solder joints and alignment of some of the SMD components? Is that related to the meme?

The appearance of this potentiostat PCB is explained by the fact that Dryden used the popular "solder paste without a stencil, followed by extensive rework" technique.  ;D  But anything beyond a punny bear may be reading too much into it.
