Now this RC oscillatory circuit creates a waveform with a rise and fall that looks like a shark's dorsal fin.  Can't you just see Jaws swimming across the screen, Da-na-na-na-na-na.  Har!  Here, let me crank up the amplitude.  Now many say this circuit serves no useful purpose, and that the sound is actually quite grating on the ear, but to me it sounds like a beautiful stradivarius playin--

BTW - if you consider any of my entries good enough to be in the 25, send my Trinket to Max - does that get round your rules?
