Yes it does, Nancy,... It's too bad the media takes its time to realize the liberal (self-labeled peaceful ) protestors like ANTIFA and BLM are also domestic terrorist as bad as the extreme right, probably because the media is part of the self-labeled peaceful protestors organization on their off free...

If you're talking Howard Johnson of "High Speed digital design"/"signal consulting": he did do that really cool experiment to visually demonstrate the that the return signal in the ground plane tracks the signal in the data plane.

Basically he created a ground plane which was cut into tiny squares then created a "data" signal which was a high enough voltage to jump the gaps. When he started the signal generator the return path could be seen in sparks on the "ground tiles" side exactly tracking the data track on the opposite side of the PCB.

Could have easily burned down the lab he was in.

I just can't find a video of the experiment.

No, I was going for a more 'pop culture' reference, the famous tollway restaurants.

No, you did not say anything about playing with fire. I remember distinctly, you said I could not play with matches. Geez, I guess that means the plasma cutter is out of the question as well.
