Ok this is a more documentation then exercise kind of patch. Seems good to
start at this level. (In regards to what I was on about with the max
tutorial pdf).

Btw: execution order isnt undefined (as I have no doubt you are well aware
of) but is depend on creation order. I think this is an important aspect of
pd coders to realize well though. It should be brought back in an practical
exercise where the student is given a problematic patch to debug.

Btw2: im not sure if putting a [o] on a [*~] connect to a [osc~ 500] is a
good idea for n00bs. They might ruine their speakers!
