R is for resistance...

Was playing around with a phonics toy that says the words clearly and distinctly for each letter--both the word, say, "doubleyew", and the sound, "whuh."

Well, clearly until I found the resistor that controlled the speed and pitch of each sound, cut it, and replaced it with a dial.

So, now, it says in a deep barcitone, stretched over about three seconds, DUOUBLEYEEEWWWW.

This works for all letters, except the letter "R". For some reason, while I can get all the letters to chirp quick-like by turning the dial to the right, "R" is the oddball, and it won't play unless there's a fairly high amount of resistance. So it'll go low and slow, but not quick and high.

Only R. Weird.
