I Have Become a Poster of Web Videos

I thank NB, repeatedly, for pointing me to the first thing that's made me laugh hard all day. And it's 10 pm.

The Rockwell Retro Encabulator. [google video] It consists of a baseplate of prefabulated Amulite, surmounted by a malleable logarithmic casing.

Can you tell me, then, whether that thing is a parody or not? Because I listened to it and thought, "either this man is very, very good at generating nonsense-speak, or he's really speaking Engineerese so thoroughly that I actually can't understand him." I mean, what the hell is a logarithmic casing? I thought a logarithm was the power to which you had to raise 10 in order to get whatever number you wanted the logarithm of, and I don't see how you can encase anything in a mathematical concept.

Gosh, I don't know. You sort of need to appreciate the difficulty of nubbing together a regurgitative purwell and a superaminative wennel-sprocket. (Indeed, this proved to be a stumbling block to further development until, in 1943, it was found that the use of anhydrous nagling pins enabled a kyptonastic boiling shim to be tankered.)

Let me try once more. We're probably speaking different languages here, me being a dual-degreed engineer and all, but here goes: did you catch the part about how the operating point is maintained as near as possible to the HF REM peak by constantly fromaging the bituminous spandrels?

ps Perhaps this will help.

Oh, well why didn't he say so to begin with? I fromage bituminous spandrels all the time.
