Oh yes, completely analogous... you beat me to this one. And the 666 timer made me speechless.

I got 347 ohms for that circuit made of 463 ohm resistors, so 347/463 or about 0.749 ohms.

It's not supposed to mean anything; it's just a fake circuit design made out of nonsense.
Basically it's the electrical engineering equivalent of http://www.whitetreeaz.com/gibber/faeries_aire_and_death_waltz.jpg]this little beauty.

The percussion instructor here is going to see that.

As mentioned above, this rounds to ~0.7479 ohms. And, while I appreciate the sentiment, It can only be ROUNDED to 1.337 mhos, and that likely happened by accident. Also, I now have an unmitigated desire to form a band called L337 Mhos.
You would likely not be interested to know that, for 5% normally-distributed resistors, this equivalent resistance would be ~ 0.7479 +- 0.0065 ohms. For 1% resistors, it would be +-0.0013 ohms. This comes from simulation in MATLAB.
Just thought I'd weigh in.
