Know That Beaver ~OR~ Rule 5 Woodsterman Style

An 86-year-old man went to his
doctor for his quarterly check-up...
The doctor asked him how he was
feeling, and the 86-year-old said ,'Things are great and
I've never felt better.' I now have a 30
year-old bride who is pregnant with my child.

"So what do you think about that Doc ?"  

The doctor considered his question
for a minute and then began to tell a story. "I have an
older friend , much like you, who is an avid hunter and
never misses a season." One day he was setting off to go
hunting. In a bit of a hurry, he accidentally picked up his
walking cane instead of his gun." "As he neared a
lake , he came across a very large male beaver sitting at
the water's edge.. He realized he'd left his gun at
home and so he couldn't shoot the magnificent
creature. Out of habit he raised his cane, aimed it at the
animal as if it were his favorite hunting rifle and went
'bang, bang'." Miraculously, two shots rang out
and the beaver fell over dead. 

Now, what do you think of that?" asked the doctor.

The 86-year-old said, "Logic would strongly suggest 
that somebody else pumped a couple of
rounds into that beaver."

The doctor replied , "My point exactly."

Thanks Hal

Static Electricity ~OR~ Rule 5 Woodsterman Style

Static Electricity

                 In my continuing effort to educate...
Just the other day a friend and I were walking through a local restaurant when he touched a door knob and got shocked by static electricity. He turned to me and said," Damn, I wish someone   would explain that static electricity to me."
       So I did: and here is my explanation - especially for my non-engineering friends .  Static electricity is an imbalance of electric charges within or on the surface of a material.  The charge remains until it is able to move away by means of an electric current or electrical discharge.  For modeling the effect of static discharge on   sensitive electronic devices, a human being is represented   as a capacitor of 100 Pico farads, charged to a voltage of 4,000 to 35,000 volts.   When the human touches an object, this energy is discharged in less than a microsecond:

Are you still having a little trouble understanding this? 
If so, the next photo may help.
