I was poking around my sccs account recently and found a old list of Erik Cheever quotes from E12 (Linear Systems). Brought back memories. Here they are:
"In the real world, where most of us live..."
"I can read it, even if you can't 'cause I have x-ray vision."
"Even though I have x-ray vision, I can't do algebra."
"I brought a spring in, just to show you that they exist."
"We can't deal with the sine, we are powerless against it."
"The only place sinusoids exist in nature is out of a wall socket."
"Five minutes isn't quite enough to do all of E11."
Cheever: That's why e+ = e-!
Julia: Cause there's a heater in there?
"Last time, i was zero."
Julia: The bottom one's faster?
Cheever: The top one's slower.
On Bode Plots: "You gotta embrace these things. The more you fight it, the more you'll suffer."
"Infinity...yeah, well, I can reach that high."
"How is this related to that?...*Loud whisper* They're the same!"
"It's not complicated enough, so I have to make mistakes to make it harder."
