Now that I know that less than one is equal to one, I am very concerned about the future of Ohms Law. Not Ohmslaw the delightful crunchy cabbage and apple salad, mind you. I almost cried when I discovered that Pluto is no longer a planet and nobody has figured out if it is possible to design a polypeptide sequence which will adopt a given structure under certain environmental conditions.

So as you might gather, I do not sleep much at night.

Apparently, these calculations will be on one or more of my upcoming tests:

P = E2/R, P = I2 * R, P = E * I, E = sqrt(P * R), E = P/I, E = I * R, I = E/R, I = P/E,
I = sqrt(P/R), R = E/I, R = E2/P and my personal favorite, R = P/I2

Please . . . will an expert confirm I can still use these simple formulas and get me my tickets if I substitute .9999 for 1? If it turns out that one amp is equal to less than one amp, my 10 mW Gunn diode and a mixer diode circuits could open a hole to the nexus of the cosmos if I am off by so much as .9999 somethings. And then where will I be? Lost in the nexus, so Bob needs help.

You do not screw around with microwaves, after all.

And if you are at sea and I my ship's radar settings are wrong, well, think back to Gilligan's island. You might be stuck with a few Gilligan's.

Or worse, remember Lost?

If i read on the net that Ohms Law is wrong, will my clock radio stop working? I think it will. Please save both the children and Ohms Law. If one is equal to less than one, it can have an effect on my studies for my Amateur Extra license test and eventually my GROL + Ship Radar Endorsement. Please contact my license examiner and let him or her know that the tests need to be changed.

My fear is we will learn that current through a conductor between two points is directly proportional to the potential difference across the two points is wrong, and I will not get up on time because my clock is no longer accurate. I might need a new clock radio with a digital dial. When I need to get up at 1 AM, I can set my clock to .9999. then it might work.

Less than one equals one. Pluto is no longer a planet, the world will end once again in 2012, Justin Bieber will keep recording, Lady Gaga will still be allowed to wear meat clothing and we will never know for certain if there is a finite upper bound on the multiplicities of the entries greater than 1 in Pascal's triangle.

I think I will end it all. Tomorrow after lunch, at .9999 O' Clock sharp. Give or take a minute or so. Rather, .9999 or .9997 or .9993.
