He needed to get out more... no really

The case of the annoying thing that wasn't a frog.

Your IQ score is 140!

Visionary PhilosopherYour IQ score is significantly above average. Congratulations! You have a wide range of exceptional skills which are much stronger than those of the average population. You are also skilled at answering the types of questions that are asked in a classic IQ test. The test analyses your strengths and weaknesses based on your mathematical, linguistic, visual-spatial and logical skills. Even though you have high scores in all of those areas, we are able to analyse your results to discover the areas in which you have the strongest abilities.

Your mind's strengths allow you to think ahead of the game -- to imagine or anticipate what should come next in just about any situation. Because you're equally skilled in the numerical and verbal universes of the brain, you can draw from multiple sources of information to come up with great ideas. The timelessness of your vision and the balance between your various skills are what make you a Visionary Philosopher.

In addition to your strengths in maths and linguistics, you have a knack for matching and anticipating patterns. These skills and your uncanny ability to detect the underlying blueprint of most of life's situations add to your visionary philosopher mind. Two philosophers who share the same combination of skills you possess are Plato and Benedict Spinoza.

Ohms laws... why?

Instead of resistence being measured in resistance, how about measuring it in "Flow":

F = 1/R

I = E x F
E = I / F
F = A / V

And now the great bit... how to work out the flow in parallel circuits:
Old way:
Rt = 1 / ( 1 / R1 ) + ( 1 / R2 )
New way:
Ft = F1 + F2

Problem is, resistence in series now just got a whole lot harder...
Old Way:
Rt = R1 + R2
New Way:
Ft = 1 / ( 1 / F1 ) + ( 1 / F2 )

Oh well, swings and roundabouts.
