Earlier today I swallowed a golf ball. I just wanted to see if I could
do it, and I can.
After it went down, I had second thoughts on whether or not swallowing a
golf ball was such a good idea, and I thought it might be a good idea to
see a doctor about it. Maybe they could give me something that would
either make me puke it out or poop it out.
I spent just about all day at the emergency intake at the Miseracordia
Hospital here in Winnipeg. When I finally got in to see a doctor, he
gave me some great advice. He told me to try to remember the number on
the ball. That way, if I pooped one out, I could tell if it was mine.
The guy is smart. I never would have thought of that.

I went to the same guy. I'd been to several doctors with my stabbing eye pains after drinking coffee. I thought it must be some kind of allergy they could treat.
They all told me the same thing, if coffee bothers you don't drink it. Well, doh, but I like coffee.
But not the Winnipeg guy. That dude was SMART! He told me just take the spoon out of the cup.

I went to the oral surgeon, to have a tooth taken out
of my face. Asked the surgeon if I'd be able to play
violin after. He asked if I could play violin now. No.
Well, that's your answer. He's smarter and faster
than I. He also did a very skilled extraction.
It's been a bit like watching a bloody traffic
wreck, watching the swinging contest on how to
name, and describe the phase of power coming
into a house. I'm remembering Tom Lehrer and his
comments about people who endlessly bemoan the
fact that they can't communicate.
I wouldn't label this as a successful troll because no one took the OP
seriously, there is no discord, no arguments, no upset members of this
It doesn't fit the definition of a successful troll since the vast majority
of the responses are in jest. A real troll must be a deliberate act to piss
people off or, at a minimum, believable enough for people to respond
seriously, even if they don't get mad.
This one was way too obvious for anyone to think it was a real question.

Further, this is the first time EVER on this group that a question about range wiring hasn't degraded into a fight over separating the neutral. I guess because he said right off the bat he was using four-wire cord...

Tommy, you can actually use the phone wire but with your lack of funds,
the way to do it is to steal a pair of 13.8kv transformers and some of
the low voltage leads. You hook the low voltage leads of the 13.8kv
transformer to your 240 volt breaker then use the telephone wire to go
from the high voltage connections of one trans former to the other. You
then hook the second transformer's low voltage connections to your stove
and it should work. ^_^
Those old switchboards did use plugs that were what we now call 1/4". Howe
ver, the plugs actually had tip, ring, and sleeve. The tip was obviously t
he tip of the plug, the ring was the circumferential area behind the tip. a
nd the second ring behind the first ring was called the sleeve. It was use
d for signalling, as I recall. I started working at Bell Labs in 1957, but
it was on the first electronic switching systems and I never got to actual
ly work with those old operator switchboards.
I ran cables, laced cables, wired MDF, CDF, maintained battery banks at
switching plant. I worked on Stroger, EMD racks.... Do I have to be 80
for all this? I also worked on Teletype writer 33, 35, 38, etc., LOL!
Being a ham since '60 I still swing bugs. My better half bought me a
Vibroplex president model with gold plated base and ruby bearings for
my birthday way back when?.... Also I worked on m/w voice links. I
whistled a lot when I was working on the link. Remember 1750 or 2400Hz
ringer carrier signal?
