Milli Hurry

Measurement of inductance used as a speed limit.   I wish I'd had time to stick around and see people attempt it.

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

Doh! *headslap*

I forgot the 'P'..think anyone will notice?

Why would anyone notice when they're too busy doing 90 mph?

Aren't all legally enforceble speed limits communicated with hand made signs nailed to a palm tree?

perhaps this is Las Vegas specific and simply a nod to the "skin effect."

Skin Effect:

"The current density J in an infinitely thick plane conductor decreases exponentially with depth δ from the surface, as follows:

J=J_\mathrm{S} \,e^{-{\delta /d}}"

Of course! That's what they meant. You're supposed to try and drive "J".

You cannot make a U-turn in a 10 MH zone; only two consecutive J-turns are allowed.
Unless, of course, you're a hot and topless chick. That's the skin effect

Actually, given the ambiguous use of capitalization, this could be either:

Megaherts - Mh


milliHenry - mH

Mh seems more to connote speed - you must oscillate past this point 10 million times a second.

I'm goign with Mh,mega hertz.
This should be a law passed with signs posted in every nieghborhood.
a 10 Mhz limit is fine but as long as it's not more than 88 i can't hear your rolling boom box thumpin' out the latest kickin'/crazy/killa and/or bumpin' jam.

an' shit.

Every now and then when your life gets complicated and the weasels start closing in, the only cure is to load up on heinous chemicals and then drive like a bastard from Hollywood to Las Vegas ... with the music at top volume and at least a pint of ether.

Dedicated to the other side of Las Vegas, namely; the sprawling, mad, incoherent underpinnings of the world's favorite destination.

That, and the occasional ranting about nothing in particular.
