#670: Spinal Tap Amps
[[Nigel Tufnel of Spinal Tap is showing off his amplifier to a person, who varies.]]
Nigel: These amps go to 11.
Person: Is that louder?
Nigel: It’s one louder.
Normal Person: Why not make 10 louder and make 10 the highest?
Engineer: But 11 doesn’t have any units. It’s an arbitrary scale mapping otuputs–
Smart Engineer: For $2,000 I’ll build you one that goes to 12.
