" The Turbo Encabulator "

Recommended Posts

The thing that bothers me with this sort of crap is that, Simplicity is the burden of mankind. In future attempts to make such examples/statements, I would encourage the use of more sophisticated verbiage. Even though the path was clear, not once did the term 'flux capacitor' come into play. Mary Poppins had a better grasp of the english language....  supercadgelisticexpe'alodocious. hmm, spellcheck seems not to be working here.

That guy is clearly out of the automotive industry and is now writing add copy for the various high end cable manufactures. I see the same gibberish in all of the expensive cable adds.

Baffle them with bullshit and the gullible will buy it.

Turbo Encabulators are more prevalent than ever. Two bad ones this week already. Once Chrysler, one Ford. The Ford owner traded his in today. Bought a Honda. Can't blame him. The owner of the Chrysler is considering having a new one installed. Cheaper than rebuilding the bad one, better warranty, too. Either way we make a bundle.

I just want to know how much practise he needed to get all the way through that with a straight face?

 

That was easy.  He's a "professional..."

 

The "Magnets" and "Cable" vendors at AXPONA do it with out flinching.

 

 

So..., I'm thinking that Kevin would be the perfect "star" of a docu-mock-ery of this on these two "fictional" Audio Products.

 

Magneto-flux-ulators

 

Cable-encapaci-ulators

 

Among the brain trust here, we could easily incorporate several hundred nonsense terms and acronyms, with technologies from a variety of imaginary chemicals and elements as well as patent-holder take-offs of existing snake-oil companies out there.

 

Now THAT would be a cool video to ignite a truth-telling story, and ultimately generate its own story/wiki.

 

(did anyone notice that the original "turboencabulator" mythical story is almost a century old? from the origins cited in the Wiki?

@AndrewJohn, I love the idea, but I'd be worried that many out there in the HiFi world would believe it, and start asking Kevin to sell them one or the other.  :D

 

Then, again, Kevin might be able to make a small fortune, if he could keep from throwing up long enough...

 

The mag&cal guys believe in their snake oil!  

 

And yes, I found the actual origins to be fascinating!  I didn't realize that the origins reached quite that far back.  Dangerous to let engineering or tech people to have enough time to let our imaginations run loose.  :)

That Wiki read was pretty funny. I lone the fact that GE included a version of it in the GE handbook. Can you imagine an engineer looking for some specs and opening up to that page.

Thanks for the laughs.
