The Retro-Encabulator 

Have you ever wanted a computer case made out of prefamulated amulite surrmounted by a maleable logrithmic casing? You read that right. From Engagdet comes one of the funniest doctored videos I've seen in a while. Well, at least I hope it's doctored, because if it's not, then I can understand why Rockwell Automation isn't doing so well lately. I used to work for Rockwell, which is why I find this even funnier. Click on the photo for the product release video. It starts out normal, but slowly degrades into the senseless mumbo jumbo using technical phrases that I swear do not exist.

Oh my gosh, I am slowly regaining composure to type. The video you feature has for sure made for one of the funniest moments I have ever experinced in my life. I am climbing back into my chair from having fallen to the floor laughing so hard. Thank you for making my day! Now, I have to go see if anyone on eBay has some hydrocoptic marzel vanes for sale. I feel my non-reversible tremmie pipe may need some differential girdle spring

It's real you idiot. You obviously know nothing of phase reactors. Up until just recently, motors were controlled using parametric reluctance differential. The retro encabulator controlls motors by way of inverse reactive current. By using this method, the problem of automatically synchronizing cardinal grammeters was solved as well. Prior to this technological breakthrough, cardinal grammeters were consistantly out of phase. An engineering nightmare. In the video, the host demonstrates that the unit actually works, and my company is currently replacing all of their units with retro encabulators, because of the cost savings, and accuracy of these amazing units.
