Blow The Speakers

Loudspeaker

F/4.5, 1/ 60, ISO 320.

Day 213 / 365

A guy is sitting in the restaurant when suddenly he realize that he needed to pass gas. The music was really, really loud, so he timed his
gas with the beat of the music. After a couple of songs, he started to feel better. He finished his coffee, and noticed that everybody was staring at him….
Then he suddenly remembered that he was listening to his iPod.

Interesting Fact: Johann Philipp Reis installed an electric loudspeaker in his telephone in 1861; it was capable of reproducing clear tones, but also could reproduce muffled speech after a few revisions.[3] Alexander Graham Bell patented his first electric loudspeaker (capable of reproducing intelligible speech) as part of his telephone in 1876, which was followed in 1877 by an improved version from Ernst Siemens. During this time, Thomas Edison was issued a British patent for a system using compressed air as an amplifying mechanism for his early cylinder phonographs, but he ultimately settled for the familiar metal horn driven by a membrane attached to the stylus. In 1898, Horace Short patented a design for a loudspeaker driven by compressed air; he then sold the rights to Charles Parsons, who was issued several additional British patents before 1910. A few companies, including the Victor Talking Machine Company and Pathé, produced record players using compressed-air loudspeakers. However, these designs were significantly limited by their poor sound quality and their inability to reproduce sound at low volume. Variants of the system were used for public address applications, and more recently, other variations have been used to test space-equipment resistance to the very loud sound and vibration levels that the launching of rockets produces.

  1. Where do you get this stuff? If you are making it up (the little stories, that it, then I am very impressed. Whatever the source, you posts are great!

    • I wish I was able to make up that kind of stuff. All this is years of listening to friends and family bad jokes that are stuck in my memory. Thank you very much for stopping by and taking interest in my work. 🙂

  2. None of the other customers noticed because they were either on their phones or iPods as well – waiters & waitresses all filed for workman’s compensation.

    Excellent post. 🙂

  3. Love this joke! Reading this over my morning coffee and really made me smile. Great start to the day. Cheers 🙂

    • Hahaha I love Beavis and Butt-head. I grow up with the, great roll-models. Thank you very much for stopping by and check out my work. 🙂

  4. I’ve learned to read your posts when people aren’t sleeping because I have a very obnoxious and loud laugh. I like the angle you took with the speaker shot, too. 🙂
