Electronics Tutorial Video - bloopers

Post by WingAdmin » Fri Nov 06, 2015 9:31 am



I found this guy on YouTube, who teaches electronics and how to build electronic projects.

Perhaps he's not the best person to be teaching this kind of stuff, given this blooper/outtake reel:

After several skits, I was beginning to wonder if all this was setup to fail just to show you what not to do.
NOPE,.. well most.. .. .. .. ok a few were staged.

STILL FUNNY :lol:

DANG that was funny.

I have been working with mechanical and high & low voltage electrical projects for over 50 years and have made my share of mistakes. But, in all that time I have not made as many mistakes and been hurt as often as this guy did in what looks like a period of a few months. As I said, I've made my share of mistakes but like most of us, I learn from my mistakes. This guy is obviously not a quick study. Too funny.

For every circuit he made, he got short circuited on every connection.

I haven't laughed so hard in a long time. His wife says it all at the 1:15 mark. In his case it may be his mother.

I hate to say it, but...I suspect he's Canadian. I noticed that one of his multimeters was a MasterCraft (house brand for Canadian Tire, and not available in other markets as far as I know) - if so, be advised that not ALL of us Canucks are that clumsy!!! :roll:

And, in the event someone here knows him, and he offers to help fix your GL1500 LCD screen...the answer is NOOOOOOO!!!

IF that's the case, then it's "SAFE" to say...
"he's a professional messer upper". ;)

Way back when I was in the military I was an electronics technician fixing the comm gear on the ship. When I went through ET school there were of course a few screw ups like that. A couple that I still remember:

During the first week of the course we went over power supplies. At the end of the week there was a test where the instructors would put a bad part into our power supply and we had to troubleshoot and repair it. The guy at the bench in front of me found the problem fairly quickly, but when he went in to unsolder the bad part, he forgot to turn the power off. He drew a spark to the tip of the soldering iron, which was bad enough since any sparks during a test meant a loss of points, but he then over-reacted, jerked back, and burned himself in the forehead with the iron. He had that burn scar on his head for the rest of the course.

A couple weeks later during another test I had finished and had gone to the back of the room for some coffee. As I was standing there I was looking over the class at the guys who were still working and noticed one of the guys suddenly twitch. He looked to either side to see if anybody had noticed, and quietly went back to work. I figured if he could pull that off he deserved to keep his points, so I didn't say anything until after class.

Over the years I made my own share of mistakes as a tech, but I was lucky enough to at least get through the class without any.

I had my share of 110v AC twitch's.
I've had a few different levels of twitch's, never yet had one the same.

Oddest one was the last one. Replacing a whole house pull chain.

I noticed the exact same thing. :) And yes, MasterCraft is unique to Crappy Tire.
