It gets even worse when you try to run a computer with the power from the turbines. When the voltages are reversed, everything works backwards. Input ports become output ports, additions suddently are substractions, all signals are inverted and the programs are executed backwards. Half of the logic on your main board is dedicated to preventing this from happening*
* I actually could use some of that logic right now, but for a totally different purpose. If you want to overclock a processor, you have to monitor the core and bus voltages, the clock frequency as well as the processor's temperature very carefully. Having hardware to do this and reducing the clock frequency when the processor gets too hot would be nice. As a bonus, you adjust these things in the BIOS menus, instead of soldering.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.
His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
Reminds me of one of my earliest experiences with data communication: This analog, asynchronous modem line driver reported "framing error" all the time. That really meant: Sycnrohizing with the received signal failed. This happened when a single byte was transmitted, but that happened only when the message was a positive ACKnowledge; any NACK (negative ACK) was followed by error data. So until the receiver was fixed, the receiving software was programmed to treat "framing error" as a positive ACK.

Right. If you can stop breathing while wearing it, it could happen in a car or anytime so I doubt it was the mask as well. My guess is maybe they were wearing it wrong. Or it was faulty? Not sure. But the bigger point is probably why the heck they were wearing it in the car in the first place.
