"Boss, I'm tired" - That carrier wave.

After all of that, all you have left are sound ripples.

That's my Factorio base

Somehow, this gave me a headache and an erection at the same time

In college I bought some viagara from my weed guy and that was basically the experience.

Apply directly to the head, but see a doctor if it lasts for more than 4 hours.

"erectache" sounds like when someone gets too erect and gets sore from it

Ah, to be young again...

A head -ache, if you will

They should tape it to supply some strain relief and prevent someone tripping over the cords from tearing the whole thing apart.

I'll get the duct tape so it leaves a nice sticky residue for later.

That residue is just a visual guide for the next time

We asked ourselves if we could, but we never stopped to ask if we should

In a world of hate for the 3.5mm jack and lack, of it (I'm an Android nerd)?

I love it. Didn't really realised when I bought my phone but now I regret it. What's the point of racking hundred of GB of Flac file if they sound like shit.

In theory the more you split it the more you degrade the sound quality

Not to mention after the first split they're already working with only left channel audio

That's not a problem the band just plays louder.

Different impedances would play an important part too, or? Some will emit sound, but others are basically mute?

I have no clue, I'm just imagining this as separate electrical cirquits in parallel, and sound volume as the voltage levels.

Depending on the impedance of the headphones it could damage the device. Modern devices are generally more tolerant than old ones in that regard

In a solid state device, the lower the resistance the higher the power given a constant voltage (yes, there are voltage switching circuits based on resistance but I'm just doing the basics here) because P=V^2 /R. When you put resistance in parallel like this it lowers that bottom number.

So you could have far more power going through a circuit than it is rated for. Best case scenario you pop a fuse. Worst case there's a fire.

Relevant but boring story (I'm old, this is what I do): Back when I was cutting my teeth on electronics but before I had any formal education in it, I had a shitty little guitar practice amp. I didn't look at the impedance rating and replaced it with a pair of car speakers in a cabinet (I was just trying things! I was a kid!). Played through it for a few minutes and it was fine. Cranked it up and something inside popped.

Turns out it was expecting 16 ohms. The speakers I replaced it with were 2 speakers at 4 ohms in parallel, so 2 ohms total. Luckily I just removed the chassis and replaced the fuse. I learned a lot that day.

Edit: I have no idea how to fix my formula formatting. So I just added a space. Imagine there's no space, I guess.
