AC by Steamstrike AC by Steamstrike
This stamp has a graphic of a sine wave alternating from north to south polarity, and the text reads: "If you don't know what this means, you shouldn't be buying electronics! This is the 21st century, people... There are no excuses for not knowing the basics of how electricity works!"

Because it drives me NUTS when I ask somebody "What is electricity?" and they say "Uh... it's something that comes out of the wall..." This is the 21st century, and electricity is the driving force of all the information technology we use! I believe there is nothing wrong with being dependent on technology as long as we understand what it is and how it works.

But the general public do not understand how electricity works, so they believe it's some dangerous monster that's just waiting to kill them... No. Electricity is unforgiving of incompetence, but it isn't dangerous. The only danger is in the stupidity of the person working with electricity.

Electromagnetism is in fact the driving force of life itself, and the universe. Life itself is electricity; electrical signals carrying orders from our brains to our bodies, instructing our heart to beat once again and our lungs to fill with air; carrying our thoughts as electric impulses from neuron to neuron. And the universe? Gravity is driven by electromagnetism.

So we must make every effort to understand what electricity is and how it works, instead of saying "Um... it's something that comes out of the wall."

"What is electricity?" "Mmm.. something blue, alternative and... yes, very thrilling.." :squee:
Unfortunately, when you don't use scientific notions every day for work it's normal to forget all.
I want to discover more about how to transform a wave (sound wave) in energy, in electricity... :D it seems very interesting. Nice stamp indeed. :+fav:

I'm learning about electricity and the different kinds of electricity (and also some basics) in science class. And I'm in the 7th grade. :XD:

Awesome! Electricity is fun, huh? Just be careful... It is extremely unforgiving of incompetence (Maybe society should take after the example, though to a lesser degree... The world might actually work if people weren't told "it's not your fault" every time they make a mistake!)

Ah, thank you! I'll start tomorrow. We're apparently going to learn physics after biology [Which will be in April and.. Well, I'm not going to be here in April so I need'a start studying better] This will really help me! If you have any extra links, please do send away. >E<

No problem :) And if you have any questions, feel free to ask me. I work with electricity on a daily basis.
