Ok, I'm only a wannabe when it comes to understanding the real imaginary world of how things work at nano-levels and below. Therefore most of this thread is too esoteric for me but thanks for the carols Bill D, they're going into my archives. LTCOML! Did you invent them Bill D or are there any writing credits you know of?
Here's my modest contribution, kids don't try this at home, and if anyone has writing credits on this one please post them, this was passed on to me years ago and this is all I have:
THE SEX LIFE OF AN ELECTRON
One night when his charge was pretty low, Micro Farad decided to get a cute little coil to let him discharge. He picked up Millie Amp and took her for a ride on his Megacycle.
They rode across the Wheatstone Bridge, around the sine wave, and into a magnetic field next to a flowing current. Micro Farad, attracted by Millie Amp's characteristic curve, soon had her to minimum resistance and her field fully excited. He laid her on the ground potential and raised her capacitance, bared her admittance and pulled out his high-voltage probe. He inserted it in parallel and began to short-circuit her shunt. Fully excited, Millie cried out "Mho, Mho, give me Mho!"
With his tube at maximum output and her coil vibrating from the current flow, her shunt soon reached maximum heat. The exciting current had gotten her shunt pretty hot, and Micro's capacitance was rapidly discharged and drained of every electron. They fluxed all night, trying various connections and sockets until his bar magnet had lost all its field strength.
Afterward, Millie tried self-inductence and damaged her solenoid. With his battery fully discharged, Micro Farad was unable to excite his transformer so they ended up by reversing polarity and blowing each other's fuses.
