Jay Mohr invented the Mohr's Circle, used in engineering to find maximum stress or strain.

He is also a comedian accused of stealing other people's jokes (but the Mohr's circle is 100% his)
A funny joke-thief had a profound impact on mechanical engineering. Jay Mohr is all that and more!!

Specifically, expensive car stereos' BOSE systems are wired so stupid that you have to gut the ENTIRE system just to upgrade it. Their speakers are in weird non-standard sizes and 1- or 2-ohm impedance (the norm is 4-ohm) and each has its own amplifier. They have all sorts of amplifiers and wires throughout the car it's a Bermuda Triangle. The head-unit is also specially matched to these shit speakers!

Try and install an aftermarket head-unit and it will blow up because it thinks the speakers are shorted (lower impedance noted above). Try and replace the speakers and it will not sound as loud because of that same problem. Most people just roll their eyes and say, "Bose?? rip that shit out and start over, new speakers, new stereo, rewire!!!!!!!!!"

Some housewives think BOSE is the best, but really it's not. But you know what, even their stereos are like filet-mignon prices for a Big Mac, they deserve their money since their marketing is top-notch. Too bad their sound quality isn't as good as their prices would suggest, or as good as their marketing dept!!
Their sound quality is so bad their official slogan is
no highs, no lows, must be BOSE

And yes, there is a real person named Amit Bose (I think that's it)

This is the legal definition of obscene in the USA:

1) The average person, applying contemporary community standards would find that the work, taken as a whole, appeals to the prurient interest (sexual desires)


2) The work depicts or describes, in a patently offensive way, sexual conduct specifically defined by the applicable state law


3) The work, taken as a whole, lacks serious literary, artistic, political, or scientific value

ALL THREE criteria must be met in order to be obscene. Also note that something that is obscene in one place may not be considered obscene somewhere else. This test is called the Miller test.
Possession of obscene material is not illegal, but distribution and exhibition may be illegal. However, it is always illegal to distribute it to minors.
