I've told people not to get me presents for my upcoming birthday, but just to pound the last nail into that coffin... dpcfmander has already beaten you all in the present department:



Voltage, wavelength and parallel capacitance, oh my!


How nerdy do you have to be just to get these jokes?


(In case you were wondering, Hate-a , Cap-a N00b is the IEEE chapter at VT.)

Damn. All it's missing is a pocket for a pocket protector (loaded with slide rules) to be the uber-nerd clothing of choice.

What's fun is to explain to people what the symbols on the front mean and then ask them to figure out what "H K N" stands for with a straight face. Watch their poor minds go right over the obvious and then walk away laughing.

The 2nd might hold! Hong Kong being an outpost of the US and (im)famous for it's HK games. (I had a friend who did EE in Purdue.)

So, what are you planning to do for your birthday??

I was hoping to sacrifice a goat to the ancient gods, and wake great Cthulhu from his dreamless sleep in R'lyeh.

Well, I get about half of them...and HKN was the easiest one for me to figure out because I've known so many people who are members of the CU chapter. (Btw, what's the robot one?)

Also, happy birthday, Ben!
