Newest Radio Thing

Just in time for the NAB, I’ve been working on this design since my college days. To give you some idea of how long that is, I am nearly 47 years old. I believe it has finally been perfected, now I just need to find somebody to make it. I guess I could send it off to China and get circuit boards made, but they would steal the design.

From the website xkcd.com, which has, perhaps the best website ever published in the history of the internet, here.

Oh yeah, and April Fools!

    @Spine, the line that goes to the “center of the sun” should provide all the needed power to the flux capacitor.

    @John, I liked the google one too. Doesn’t have an option for those of us not hooked to a municipal sewer system.

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. To be your own man is hard business. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

...radio was discovered, and not invented, and that these frequencies and principles were always in existence long before man was aware of them. Therefore, no one owns them. They are there as free as sunlight, which is a higher frequency form of the same energy.
