Not only that, but I share things that I do not know.

Yes. Yes. Yes.Yes, and Yes.


TNP if given the option of having to choose either A or B would definitely choose option A because option B would be akin to Water Boarding.

Scenario: Your car stereo is broke, and although JJ has the tools and means to fix it he can only make it work in one of two ways.

A) Plays continuous Christmas music only
B) Plays continuous music by the group ABBA.

Oh, and JJ is really not that good at repairing things, so he also can't figure out how to turn the sound/power off or adjust the volume so if your driving your listening to whatever it plays.
I'm truly sorry, but I can't keep explaining this simple thing to you over and over again hoping that you'll finally understand something so simple and obvious.
I'm not the "Dumb-Ass Whisperer".

I really, really hate anti-semantics.

True.  After I finished high school, I worked for my uncle for about three months over Christmas and the New Year during which period my cousin was given a cassette player and three ABBA tapes.  I still get the quivers when I hear an ABBA song...

TNP would rather pull their own head off than listen to a whole ABBA album

False!!! I love ABBA!


TNP is horrified by the fact that ABBA is loved?

True.  I don't even like that movie Mamma Mia

TNP is over all this ABBA talk and would much rather listen to Pink Floyd

False, that's an unOztralian attitude.

When I lived in Porpoise Spit, I used to sit in my room for hours and listen to ABBA songs. But since I’ve met you and moved to Sydney, I haven’t listened to one Abba song. That’s because my life is as good as an Abba song. It’s as good as Dancing Queen.

The Np would like to see Pink Floyd cover some ABBA tunes.

True, and here it is:

"We don't need no ABBA tunes"
"We don't need no Dancing Queen"
"No Mama Mia, or Fernando"
"And especially, no I Have A Dream"

"Hey, DJ, leave them songs alone"

"All in all it's just another Voulez-Vous"

(I guess this is more like Weird Al covering Pink Floyd with an ABBA twist, but close enough.)

TNP fancies himself/herself a song writer.

Sort of true. I could be a good lyricist, depending on your taste in words. One thing I used to do when I rode my bike all over my home town was to make up new lyrics to songs I know. Willie Nelson's "On the Road Again" gets bastardized with "on the toad again", with lines like, "Getting batrachotoxin with my friends, I can't wait to get back on the toad again", etc. Meter is a little off here, I'm recalling that the "getting" had a better fit, but damned if I can remember the old word. It's been years since I've thought about it, same for riding my bike. I got hit by some jerk who was texting but didn't stop. Fortunately it was only the handlebar, but it put me off riding.

TNP has licked a poison toad.

False, but a long dead friend once made tree frog tea. It was an unpleasant experience all the way around.

TNP believes I could at least fix a damn radio.

True, can't everybody?  I mean I designed and built my own radio transmitter once and that wasn't hard...

TNP prefers the lovely warm glow of a transmitting tube to the cold hard efficiency of a solid state front end

True.
I also prefer the lovely warm glow of a transmitting tube to the cold hard front end.  :shifty:

True.
The Np envies the days when you could take the back off and go ah ha, that tubes dark, I'll replace it.
The latest Fred Flintstone episode wouldn't be missed, the children would cheer and your wife would bring you a beer.

True.

TNP realises that an old valve (tube) type TV set did not contain any transmitting tubes.



This^ circuit has a transmitting tube, a dual beam tetrode

Sure, why not.

TNP believes that if it is on TV, it is factual.

False. Much (not all) of it has some sort of bias in it.

TNP knows that tubes are voltage amplifiers and that transistors are current multipliers.
