Look Mommy! It's an Oscillating Circuit!

In Livermore, California you can tell the town is full of engineers. The neighborhood playground is decorated with ABC's, 123's, and circuit diagrams.

There's something odd about this circuit diagram, however. The people who planned this geeky playground attraction were obviously not the same people who installed it. Positive goes on top, negative on the bottom, folks. This circuit diagram has been installed upside-down. Hundreds, maybe thousands of children will grow up to find themselves very confused in electronics class.

LOL!!!!!! Oh, that's just hilarious, Rebecca.

So, sounds like we should start a fund raiser to invert the erroneous installation and thus save young minds from being exposed to false concepts!

Oh my gosh... who's idea was it to install a circuit diagram in the first place? That fact alone is funny!

Add to that the fact that it was installed upside-down, and we may have a potential candidate for the Darwin Awards!

Well, I'm an idiot because it just looked like interesting playground art to me. I know Mike would recognize it.

Hey...He's wearing his glasses! Yippee (and you were worried).
