Redneck Engineering - The Red Green Show
Videos for Engineers

Red Green Boolean Logic Expert - RF Cafe Video for EngineersIf you have never watched the Red Green show on PBS, you don't know what you've missed. It is a veritable treasure trove of How-To and Do-It-Yourself instructional videos. Possum Lodge's grand pooh-bah, the Doctor of Duct Tape (aka duck tape for the ignorant), Red Green has produced a seemingly endless collection of useful project shorts that cover just about every topic. The featured video has a Possum Lodge expert answer a viewer's question about Boolean Logic in his new car's fuel injection system. You can't get this kind of education at some fancy university. Another one shown is a prime example of how a bit of redneck ingenuity allows the dedicated tinkerer to easily and cheaply convert manually operated car windows to electric power. As Red aptly asks, "Ever notice how winding your window down by hand makes you look lower-middle-class?" I won't spoil the surprise by telling you how he does it. Suffice it to say that you will wonder why nobody thought of it sooner. Product designers love it when somebody figures out a practical new way to use their products that they never even imagined. Of course you can surf around YouTube to find your own additional episodes, but to make you life easier I posted a few more of my favorites on the page. Enjoy!

Oh, never forget Red's personal philosophy: "If women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.

... or the Lodge's motto: "Quando omni flunkus moritati" (Pseudo-Latin for "When all else fails, play dead").
