Nice! While in the US Army Signal Corps, (I worked field radio/crypto repair) one of the microwave/PCM guys was trying to have a baby (with his wife, of course!) He was a quiet, nice kind of guy, and got more than his share of being pushed around for it. So, when he went up to the central hospital, for a sperm count, he had a light bulb go off over his head, and came back to the shop, and explained to all the young dumb single guys that a "nurse would help you with the donation." There was a mass stampede up to the hospital, (my early sense of cynicism rescued me from this--I KNEW that you would not get a "free one" from the Army) and one by one, the guys all came back, red faced...apparently, several had even gone so far as to ask if they could "pick a nurse". And, typical army SOP--they were't allowed to "change their minds" once they discovered that it wasn't going to be so delightful as they had been led to believe!

Does anyone remember an article , posted in a ham radio mag , must have been around Y2000 +- 2 years , it was Titled "Engineers Beware " , and related the story of some spoof electronic circuitry , presumably backed up with some good spoof literature .... some guy saw it and used it in a professional project , with disaterous results ...

What was that circuitry  ... does anyone know please ...?
