    Turntable

    Nothing to do with motorcycles but would someone explain why the turntable in the microwave never turns the same way twice in a row? The turntable on my old record player always turns the same way.

    Has to do with the Flux Capacitor alignment to the encapsulator.

    If it turned the other way, then Stairway to Heaven played backwards would result in a message from Satan...we can't have that!

    Well hang on there, sometimes the encapsulator signal will accept micro-voltage from the free electrons instead of the pentavalent atoms, changing the rotation via the DC coupler.

    I think some features of the Entabulator were used:

    I believe the Entabulator is the old manual version, compared to the solid-state Encapsulator.

    Correct. But if the Throttle Grosket Diversifier does not engage with the Finnigan Pin then it reverts back to the first generation Entabulator. I think you can find them on eBay.
    Basically: new technology vs old. Just ask a Millennial.

    Ya know, back in '84 I had a chance to invest in the original Entabulators; was an inside tip. Think I did? Noooooooo.
    I could've been rich now.

    Round and Round

    My age spots make all of this sound very plausible

    One day, as I was walking through the kitchen...

    One day, as I was walking through the kitchen, my wife asked me why I was carrying my .45.

    "F****n' Decepticons," I told her.

    I laughed, she laughed, the toaster laughed, then I shot the toaster.


    No clue about the microwave, though. Turntables have to go the direction the music is recorded, unless, yeah, you want to hear a satanic message about Paul being dead, or something.
