According to today's Google Doodle, it's Heinrich Hertz' birthday.

To which I say "booooooooooooooooooooooooooop" - a 1KHz tone.

Ok, ok. The Hertz humor has peaked, so let's resine from it before it gets dragged into the trough.


I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.

I believe it was the super villain Mega Hertz that caused his demise. Dropped him off of a peak and waved goodbye.

I wish the internet existed in all this glory back when I was going to EET school. I really could have been ready to drop serious one liners after reading this thread.

Even John Mellencamp wrote a song for him on his birthday a few years ago. You know the one, "Hertz So Good". grin
