Scientific Break Through

It has just been announced this morning by The National Society of Electrical Folks that wires do NOT contain electricity. After all of these years they have discovered that wires contain SMOKE When the smokes escapes the wire does not work anymore. Have any of you proved this theorm your self loooong ago... I wonder if you replace the SMOKE what would happen... Doctor Dave....

Smoke Pump

That is when you will need a smoke pump to replace the lost smoke..kinda like a A/C refill..

"What's that smoke comming from my car?"

"It's OK mam, we just recharged the smoke in your wires"

Be aware, however, when replacing your smoke pump that there are left hand and right hand models - and your need to make sure you match your existing application. (This advice is void where prohibited by law..)

that's alot easier on the noggin than my favorite one:

electricity is a energy wave form (light) and a particle (electron mass) at the same time...proves true for both no question..."but" you can only prove for one state at a time and therefore you are comparing a past state to different time state so the answer is "maybe" true...

ps we really don't know what gravity and magnetism and black holes are either

sincerely, quantum phsyics

I love that one

I learn that one on my first car a 65 ford Ranchero. I had the old eight track and the CB on a removable slide in deal. But No one told me twisting the wires together and rapping them with electrical tape would let all the smoke out. Picture this. On my way to work as a box Boy all of the sudden I see smoke coming from my CB next thing you know I can't see roll the window down head hang out the window trying to drive. one hand yanking on the CB wires. Finally pull over choking waving my hands. I get the CB pull loose from the power wire. stops smoking. Then I learn I need quick disconnect smoke connectors.

I found out that if you have one of these wires that is letting the smoke out, that you DO NOT try to pull on said wire, because it will leave red marks and then blisters in your hand

People tend to get nervous when they see smoke coming out of wires. After that they begin to worry, first thing you know they will have made themselves sick. A chemist has found a new way to alleviate all this by inventing invisible smoke. The smoke is an option for all your wiring needs. If you develop a leak in your wiring you will never see it so you will not worry your self to death, instead you will die of smoke inhalation. The doctor can't detect the cause of death and calls it natural cause. The question is would you rather natural smoke or natural cause?

When I was in High School I had a 1950 Ford coupe. We were out on a date one night and kept blowing fuses in the headlight circuit, as fast as you could put them in. Dave, took tin foil from his pack of smokes and put it around blown fuse. When we turned on head light switch SMOKE came out of dash, burnt a wire and he found the short. I knew then he was the MAN to marry... Proved true almost 50 years ago..... THERESA

I ruptured the lines going to my after market alternator gage
& yup it let the smoke out but it also melted the plastic oil line & turned the smoke to fire on my go pedal foot on the Southern State parkway @ 70 MPH in the left lane by the time I got it shut off I had a hot foot & a hot dash .

Had to drive back home pinching it off with a pair of pliers so the oil wouldn't leak out
