I haven't watched much television for the last thirty years, so I don't know if having someone get electrocuted is still considered as funny as it used to be. Maybe that went out with the Three Stooges. In the 1960s and 70s, just about every Prime Time comedy show ran an episode where somebody's tooth filling was picking up radio broadcasts. I particularly remember the Gilligan's Island episode called "Hi-Fi Gilligan" where he became an AM radio receiver when a jolt to the jaw affected the filling in a molar (those AM signals travelled quite a distance to that "uncharted desert isle"). These two electronics-themed comics from 1968 Radio−Electronics magazine hits on both of those themes.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
