I believe his point was that a fat and skinny cable in series provides the same net resistance regardless of the ordering of the pieces. Not that a real world cable would be 100 ohms.

Use *realistic* resistance values.  For example, a 10 foot piece of
of #8 wire (0.63 milli-Ohms per foot) with a six inch "pigtail" of
#12 wire (1.5 milli-Ohms per foot) is equivalent to 11' 3" of #8
wire or less than one foot of #12 wire.
