I really don't get what all the fuss is about. From what I understand, it's a transmission which outputs more energy than is put in. You don't have to be a rocket scientist in a lab coat to know what's really going on in there.

Oddly I've seen these for years, I"ve had my turbo encabulator from Rockwell, who used to be next door for a long time.

Too bad it breaks so easily.

Lab coat story: I had a part time job at a pharmacy when I was going to school. Every employee had a white lab coat. Despite the fact that I was just the stock boy/cash boy/general gopher, I had one ... got a kick out of wearing it.

On more than one occasion, traffic stopped to let me cross a busy Ottawa street when I strode purposely out of the store. I attributed it to the coat.

(Little did the drivers know I had just been sent out by the pharmacists to go pick up lunch ! )

I blaim Freud, and we all know that Freud wasn't humanoid. He was a Rentil-Betazin from Traxis-7. He only *looked* semi-human because of massive silicone-surgery.

That's what you get for hanging around us hu-mans too long.
