    We use electricity in daily life. It is the essential part of our life. Do you know what actually is it?

      Could go and look it up I suppose. Something to do with positive and negative ions colliding? Come on, enlighten us.

      Sure, but you'd have to be more specific, there is electric charge, current, field, potential and electromagnetism. Each is a phenomenon that would require an explanation. smile

        Well that's a good idea-- No jokes, people. You know we don't do that here.

        We will try to be positive about electricity.

          But you always need a negative next to the positive to have electricity !!!
          It won't work if it is always positive...
          hehehe

    It's that little tingle you get when in your morning stupor you happen to continue shaving with your electric razor as you step into the shower. It has nothing to do with the stupid feeling you get when you realize you're a dumbass.big_smile
