Default Glydon's prose ....

i sort of get the feeling glydon has some interesting things to say. too bad he can't say them in plain english. big, confusing words and long, convoluted sentences are sometimes confused with gravity and intelligence. personally, i equate them "confusing" and "convoluted."



but maybe that's just me.

Personally, I've got nothing against Glydon's writing. My attacks against him are purely personal, petty, and vindictive.

Whole lota hogwash. The feel, the sound, the wind in your hair, pulse of the engine, but the current flow, hogwash. Interesting article though

Joe Glydon is a worthy addition to your roster of scribes. His article in last month's Citybike on the history of the Honda VFR was a classic, still available for a few more days until the new issue at Citybike.com comes out

To borrow from the wisdom of Eric Cartman: "Damn hippie crap! This article really pisses me off! Screw you guys, I'm going home."

Default Re: An elclectic response

Actually, in addition to the resistence clarification given above, electrons hardly travel through a circuit at all, the real work is done by what's called a signal voltage, that is, electrons actually bump into eachother (figuratively) and send a kind of ripple down the line, that way even electrons currently bonded to an atom can be involved in the current flow. If only free atoms could take part in the electron flow, the resistence of a copper wire would be very great indeed.



In fact, if one actually measured the flow of an individual electron, it may well take all day to get from your outlet up to the lamp above your bed, and that's assuming it did not fall into an open electron level in a positively charged atom on the way.



Hope that's helpful.
