    This is not really off topic, but I wasn't sure where to put it.

    I've just been reading about IP and all that, and I have always been interested in how does information move so fast through cables and wires etc.

    I really messed up at school and didn't even get my science GCSE.

    I found school boring, but now with the internet I love reading up on how things work, especially science and physics.

    I wanted to go over how electiricty works and so I googled it.

    Here is the result:This is the main page:

    I also got to this link, after following the light switch question:

    I find that these facts are nice to know.They answer my inner questions.

    Maybe most of you guys already know a lot about this stuff, but I'm making up for my misspent youth :sleeping :morebeer :alc2 :morebeer :sleeping
