                     THE SEX LIFE OF AN ELECTRON

One night when his charge was pretty high, Micro Farad decided to get a
cute little coil to let him discharge. He picked up Millie Amp and took
her for a ride on his megacycle. They rode across the Wheatstone Bridge,
next to a flowing current.

Micro Farad, attracted by Millie Amp's characteristic curve, soon had her
field fully excited and he couldn't resistor. He laid her on the ground
potential, raised her frequency, lowered her resistance, and pulled out
his high voltage probe. He inserted it in parallel and began to short
circuit her shunt.

Fully excited, Millie Amp cried, "Mho, Mho. Give me Mho!"

"Ohmigod, this is good," shouted Micro. With his tube at maximum output
and her coil vibrating from current flow, her shunt soon reached maximum
heat.  The excess heat had gotten her shunt pretty hot and Micro's
capacitance was rapidly discharging, ... draining off every electron. They
fluxed all night, trying various connections and sockets until Micro's bar
magnet had lost all of it's field strength.

Afterward, Millie tried self-inductance and damaged her solenoid. But it
didn't phasor. With his battery fully discharged, Micro Farad was unable
to excite his transformer. So they ended up by reversing polarity, and
blowing each other's fuses.
