@martijnbraam They know that there's a reason nobody reads these things, so are trying to make it bearable for those who have to.

@martijnbraam some of the interns must've had a lot of fun with these 😂

@martijnbraam Oh, that kind of thing's been in TI documents dating back to at least the 1980s back when they were in the math textbook game.

Not quite the level of the #HP-75 design specification though. That was legendary.

@BalooUriza @martijnbraam

As a bit of further trivia, the person who compiled that except, #jkh, is an ordained Catholic priest.

Just search for “#kangaroo” “#roo-man” and similar.

Though the menu thing is quite funny too.

And amongst the authors I recognise at least one #HP48 design engineer.
