As I was challenging a student on making some measurements, pointing to components and saying things like...

"WHAT......... is the resistance in the windings of that injector??"

Just for the fun of it... I tossed in.. "WHAT.....is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow??"

And my gifted student, standing behind me, replied "Would that be an African or a European swallow?"


I almost peed myself.

Wouldn't you love to have that power to pop people with no clue into the wild blue yonder!! and that person that answered you with that smart a$$ remark is amazing for such as youngun.

It's a good thing you didn't take in a swallow of coffee between asking that question and receiving the follow-up.
