I started off college as a major in Electrical Engineering. Unfortunately wasted my talent on “the college experience “. Wish I could go back in time but I digress... One of the first things we learned is that electricity is still a “theory”. No one has actually observed the mechanisms working in real time. We have just observed forces acting on each other and results from chemical reactions. And yet look at the infrastructure it is built on and how vital it is to our modern existence.

Fast forward to several years ago. Working a mundane job and a lefty coworker was laughing at a Facebook post and calling the poster ( a conservative) a dumbass because they were talking about this particular aspect of science and sharing a book that used electricity as an example.

Lefty coworker : “ look at this dumbass, he doesn’t think electricity exists” - clearly ignoring the explanation in the book

Me:” he’s correct about the point though, they taught us that in EE at uni”

Coworker: silence.

I really need too. I find him interesting but I get so consumed with politics I forget there are other subjects out there.
