Ooooh good questions Marc! Let’s see if these draw out the IACHI Brainiacs!

CONGRATS to our most recent Member Of The Year, Joseph DePiero!

You got 4.
I’m not sure about #3 where you said clamper.
I thought it doesn’t function as a dual but I think you will know better than I.

Not much action here so it’s lonely at the top!

Dual Supply

4) Why is High voltage is not inherently dangerous
High voltage is not inherently dangerous. Track your feet across carpet on a dry winter day and you will charge your body to several thousand volts. If you then touch metal, the resulting static discharge will have a voltage many times greater than a typical home’s electrical system, yet you will be perfectly safe because the current is not sustained.

5) Don’t worry how old this is, because it will never rot away!
Bees pollinate 80% of the world’s plants including 90 different food crops.
1 out of every 3 or 4 bites of food you eat is thanks to bees.
The honey bee is responsible for $15 billion in U.S. agricultural crops each year.
Honey is the only food that does not spoil (bacteria can’t grow in it, and because of it’s low moisture content and low pH – honey can last indefinitely).
