Default The Turbo Encabulator

Had been so long since I had seen this, I almost forgot about it. I feel like Yogi Berra, who said "I can't believe all the memories I forgot."

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ac7G7xOG2Ag

He did an updated version years later that is also on line.

For those who want to dig deeper into this amazing technology, here is the script.

“For a number of years now, work has been proceeding in order to bring perfection to the crudely conceived idea of a transmission that would not only supply inverse reactive current for use in unilateral phase detractors, but would also be capable of automatically synchronizing cardinal grammeters. Such an instrument is the turbo encabulator.

Now basically the only new principle involved is that instead of power being generated by the relative motion of conductors and fluxes, it is produced by the modial interaction of magneto-reluctance and capacitive diractance.

The original machine had a base plate of pre-famulated amulite surmounted by a malleable logarithmic casing in such a way that the two spurving bearings were in a direct line with the panametric fan. The latter consisted simply of six hydrocoptic marzlevanes, so fitted to the ambifacient lunar waneshaft that side fumbling was effectively prevented.

The main winding was of the normal lotus-o-delta type placed in panendermic semi-boloid slots of the stator, every seventh conductor being connected by a non-reversible tremie pipe to the differential girdle spring on the “up” end of the grammeters.

The turbo-encabulator has now reached a high level of development, and it’s being successfully used in the operation of novertrunnions. Moreover, whenever a forescent skor motion is required, it may also be employed in conjunction with a drawn reciprocation dingle arm, to reduce sinusoidal repleneration.”

That is hilarious....I don't know how he could record that with a straight face.

In a past life, I worked for a company that used a paid actor to produce our technical training VHS videos. He could read the scripts and look professional on camera, but had no technical idea about what he was saying. I did get to see a couple of outtakes which were hilarious. He was a great guy and was very good at his job.

IIRC - I had read that this was the sound check for a different, more formal/legitimate presentation.

Legal Definition: Misdirection by double talk, imbecile verbiage & misplaced confidence of Jibber-Jabber, Fumble speak.

We used this in the trades on but not limited to: 3rd. level Management, New; Engineers and Apprentices/Helpers, Visiting Dignitaries, New Trainers, Seamen recruits and Very few officers, Selected Inspectors and Auditors.

One of the Games we played was to just "Sprinkle a Dusting" of this and see how and if it was caught.

This Guy went Full,,,,,,,,Well you know.

Funny stuff

I think I'll install one in a DeLorean and see what happens when I hit 88 mph.

Back when I was in high school, I got a ticket for “chirping” the tires in my Camaro. A family friend who was a lawyer, who knew absolutely nothing about cars, met me on the court date.
He asked “ Alright Dave, explain to me what happened” So I told him what happened.
Next thing I know, he is in front of the judge explaining that my car is equipped with a super high performance transmission and a high stall speed converter, etc.
You would have thought my lawyer was Don The Snake Prudhomme.
He explained everything to the judge and all I received was a fine.
Those were the good old days!
I found the ticket!

Sorry to hijack thread.
