There's a difference between knowing Ohm's law and knowing what the numbers on your meter mean. I don't need a degree in automotive engineering to know that when the tach on my bike approaches 7,000 rpms I need to let up on the throttle or upshift.
In the case of a VOM using the information on the meter only implies knowing that 2.2 with the meter set to kOhms means 2,200 Ohms. It does not mean that there are n Amps or y Volts.
You're trying really hard to justify a position which you seem to realize is wrong. You say you can take as well as give. Well, take this. You're wrong.
