Some odd humor

The scans of some old "advertisements" that Thomas Payerle developed (with my help) for Random Howe's Book-of-the-Month Club might be of interest even though they do not quite fit this catagory. One has titles such as The Search for Terrestrial Intelligence and Do-It-Yourself Cerebral Repair (with brief descriptions); the other includes titles such as Flying Saucer Cover-up? and The Human Brain: a User's Guide.

(If you enjoy such odd humor, you might also enjoy the other scans [of advertisements for Big Sam's Anatomical Warehouse]. Sadly, some of the other bulletin board flyers we developed while at Washington University have not survived: Nunzio's Mortuary and Pizzeria [with free pick-up and delivery], a notice for a buyer of teeth named T. Faerie, and a notice of a lost Protoceratops [from an institute of temporal studies] are the ones I remember and there were some other [now lost] Big Sam's ads. The artistic quality was not great, but they did provide a few smiles.)

The title I remember, from 1981, was "Nailing Jelly To A Tree" by Jerry Willis.

Considering the success of the "Dummies" books, and the copycat "idiots guide", I suspect "Directional Derivatives For Brain-dead [censored]" would be insulting enough to get massive sales.

Seriously however: a series of books for "advanced dummies" or even "moderately ignorant" would be interesting. Instead of assuming no prior knowledge, they'd start with some basic skills assumed [and a reference if the book proves too hard].

Max, I believe some of these books have been already mentioned, but not long ago they've been presented here: http://joemonster.org/art/19769 And the Oscar goes to... Dr Denis Leary "Why we suck".

@Garcia: In addition, our Martin Rowe would have written a song...

I don't mind him writing songs ... it's when he insists on singing them LOL

@David: I'd already realized that one, but I didn't want to ask -- there are things in this strage world that are best to be undiscovered!!


In addition, our Martin Rowe would have written a song, not a book introduction :-)

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
