it helps that i didn't grow up on a farm!

when i was 5, i used to get the "LED assorted pack of 20" from radioshack with my allowance, and then i would take them home and connect them to a 9v battery. i learned that different colors took different amounts of time to blow up, and if i connected multiples in series, i could make them light up longer before blowing up.

it's how i taught my self about series/parallel circuits, and forward voltages of diodes.

then there was the "smashing rock" i kept when i was 4-15/16. i would drag any electronics i could find in the trash back home, and break them open to study the insides, many times, the circuit board had the names of the components on it. it's how i learned basic through-hole component names.

yeah, not as exciting as a humfrz story

Yeah it looks almost exactly like Arceibo! The Chinese steal everything.

I don't get to brag much as I have few accomplishments of my own. However, my father had many and they're all the more impressive knowing he was self taught.
Interesting and impressive -
