@Max, KB, thanks for the comments.  The facts that (a) they are over 2 years after I posted mine and (b) I'm a grey haired old fart who easily forgets things, meant that I could enjoy the links again almost as much as when I first saw them :-)

@David: And here's some more politically incorrect national stereotypes...

This reminds me of that classic book by George Mikes called "How to be an Alien." One chapter is titles "Sex" -- the entire body of the chapter reads: "On the continent poeople have sex lives. In england they have hot water bottles." LOL

@David: For some more totally politically incorrect stuff in a similar vein...

Personally I thought that was pretty funny ... but sad because there's a (small) possibility that something like that could happen

@Duane: He forgot to list the US terror threat levels...

I always get confused with those. I think the best is Green, which means all is well in the world, but how does it go after that? Is it Verdigris Green, Titian, Smalt, Cattleya, Damask, Puce, and then Vermilion?

This is a funny, yet there-is-some-truth-in-it, take on the security level of England. Typical of British humor and coming from John Cleese, it is forgivable. Security issues are indeed a serious matter, but a little comedy and humor would not hurt so much. Being resistant to threats does not mean that we have to be very serious, and no space for some humor. Humor is good!

And here's some more politically incorrect national stereotypes: http://www.just-humor.com/desert_island.htm (The one I got emailed recently had Australians in place of Americans, so this one's probably more likely to offend more of the EET target audience ;-))

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
