Why A Dead Alkaline Battery Bounces!


I would like to recognize the often overlooked and forgotten Gyro Gearloose and his assistant, Little Helper, part of the Scrooge McDuck universe, and Duckburg's most famous inventor for his important contribution to the field of science. How many engineers and scientists today got their start in early years by reading about the antics of Gyro Gearloose and tinkering in a home workshop? Also not forgotten are his Grandfather, Ratchet Gearloose; his Father, Fulton Gearloose; and his Nephew, Newton Gearloose.





About me: I am a retired electronics engineer with a passion for investigating technical issues, occasionally surrounded with mystery and  often bridging several fields of technology.
