Funny things new people to the hobby may ask, say, or do.

Ok so what this was really for is just to hear some of the funny things that new people to this hobby ask/do or say about this hobby. Because me and my friend jeal (btw his real name is not jeal lol) that i go to school with saw this guy post and ask How do you take the brushes out of a brushed motor to make it brushless? well we were talkin about rc cars and that was pretty funny, but we did help him out and give him alittle info in the differences, so today we thought we should make a thread on funny things new people say or mgiht do or ask, so i figured i would give it a try and see where it goes but i think this is just gonna fail and its jeal's fault because i wasent gonan do this but he told me to! lol

Now i am not here to make fun of the new people coming to the hobby but just to here some funny things people have said that may not make total sense at all. I was just recently got into the hobby myself and i am sure i had alot of dumb questions or things i siad that were dumb.

Shout out to jeal.

I was once reported as saying...(about snow) ... 'it's cold'. This habitual Floridian would never say something like that during his 1st encounter with it....

Oh... you mean RC?

Nothing quite so stupendous.... however I've DONE a few dumb things. But then if you haven't then you haven't really built and flown RC have you?.?.

"No way that motor draws 4,000 volts..."

A buddy walked into an electrical supply store asking for silicone wire. The clerk asks what it is for, how much volts and amps, and what it is for. My buddy tells him, it is for a speed control, and has to handle 35a at 8V, and shows the guy the ESC. Clerk steps back from the counter and says, "there is NO WAY that you can get that kind of current through that!! Can't be done!!" My buddy bought some 12ga wire anyway, but the clerk still didn't believe him.

True story!
