I think the internet weighs 1 s.u. of p0rn. The rest is just fluff and YouTube videos.

Well, and the very important and timely intellectual discourse we enter into on this very forum.

maximile __________________________ I believe that both answers in the article are wrong, as a coulohb and an ampure are interchangeable a coulohb is 6.24 X10^18 that is a lot bigger than 1018 as quoted by one author,
