    I don't know why, but I hope this is a fake.

    Have no fear, its totally bogus.
    It rides on some sound theory but when he plugs the USB connector into the
    onion, that does it.

    Don't try this at home kids - it's just one more in a series of fake
    how-to videos that has become popular on video sites. It's some kind of
    internet phenomenon. Why anybody would time the time and effort to make
    these things is a mystery. Misinformation - it's the new information. :-)

    Normally, I think everything is funny, however, I've seen too many to
    these videos. Too bad - I'm burnt out on these. :-)

    BTW, here's a cool new way to cook a turkey!

    That one is funnier, I think. But if you're tired of the form...

    Ever see the "Look Around You" videos? The opening sequence with the
    guy entering code in BASIC on an Acorn BBC Microcomputer carries a lot
    of information -- like those filmstrips the coach who taught health
    in 10th gade.

    I've never seen this series. This tells me that you're probably a old
    computer enthusiast around 55 or 60 years old, who grew up watching this
    type of material in the UK and has a rather droll sense of humor. That's
    my guess anyway. In my case, I missed most of the humor - too much of an
    American, I guess.

    You might find this to be funny or of interest:

    Nice. You got my age about right.

    To set the record straight, I'm a Texan with Louisiana roots, married
    to a native Texan. The old computer stuff is just a passing interest
    because of how I was first convinced to use a personal computer. A
    good friend back in the early 80s had a Kaypro, and he showed me how
    to use it for word processing. It looked like this:

    Dang! That cheap parlor trick works a lot of the time. :-)

    That Kaypro reminds me of this:

    Good thing it has that hefty rubber grip handle, you'd need it! We've
    come a long way, baby!

    Maybe he didn't want to take a leek near electricity.
