xkcd 666 Timer IC: Maxim makes a MAX666

One of the most memorable things about xkcd’s (in)famous circuit diagram is the 666 timer (at the top right corner of the comic), a parody of the famous 555 timer:

Today I was analyzing the logic board for HP 3560A and noticed some batches uses a MAX666 chip and it immediately reminded me of this xkcd joke. Turns out Maxim Integrated makes a voltage regulator with a cool part number! I bet the engineers back in the days must have started with 666, giggling uncontrollably, and added 665 and 664 to see if it can get past the regulators or the censors (puns intended for both).

送袋春畀你

之前去日本玩喺AEON見到包咁嘅薯片:

成包「春」袋!

我同朋友當場笑到翻肚,我估其它人肯定唔知我哋笑緊啲乜。買咗包返嚟美國畀香港人朋友當手信。

韓国から愛をこめたカンチョー

ちょっとガキっぽいげど、この下ネタを見逃しません:

Kancho is LOVE. カンチョーはラブである。
Kancho from the back. 後ろ。
Contrary to common design, the bag is supposed to be opened from the middle. Exactly what Kancho does! もちろん、開け口は間中です。カンチョーですから。

中身は生チョッコだから、イメージはぴったりです。
