I must have missed the first broadcast from CSPAN . If you close your eyes one would think this was some senator on the floor of the senate ..Blowing Smoke and putting the USA further in debt,but filling HIS/HERS pockets first .

There is a 50's-60's vintage video out there that has a guy in a lab coat doing the same non-sensical speach in a lab setting showing a bunch of unrelated parts on a table.

It's just a joke!

From what I understand, the original guy was a regular narrator of tech films for the automotive/aviation industries 50's/60's. The film was shot during a test for the volumes/recording levels etc prior to the real thing, he was told something along the lines of "Just a few words so we can check the gear", sort of thing. The result is now this fine piece of historic jargon. How he managed to keep a straight face is not recorded...This is a fine homage to the original...

Hi,

There was a short section there regarding the sigmoidal snuffalator that was overlooked, but otherwise a very concise account in my opinion.

( Incidentally, have you guys seen the new high tech. aluminium nose weights now available ? there hugh ! )

Cheers,
Merlin Man.

My mum complained of a noise in her car. Post test drive I told her that the harmonic combobulator had failed and she needed to get a new one fitted...., maybe I should get her to watch the vid for some further eduation.

Thanks

Now I know how they manage to obtain all of those billable hours that don't solve anything!!! I wonder what songs are in the manual?

Apparently this guy is auditioning for the part of the Professor in the remake of "Back to the Future"

Maybe he hopes they will use a B-17 instead of a DeLorian.

It is a remake of Bud Haggart (sp) who did a video proving he could handle a completely made-up B.S. reading for use in the time delay, which he pioneered.

Pretty much looks like every Boeing training video I've ever seen. Next class I should have the instructor play this. See if anybody notices.

So this was ad-lib?

If so, I'm genuinely impressed...

I dont think so IMO. Appeared to me he was reading off a script board. During his reach for the "song book" I think he was trying to keep place, maybe while reading a reminder to not smile or laugh.
