If cueball's words are indeed negative, they will pass trough the diode... But he still wo'nt appologize asuming an apology is positive. -[[Special:Contributions/173.245.53.148|173.245.53.148]] 15:44, 20 May 2014 (UTC)

I'm still having a problem with this, since the electrons are the mobile charge carriers and 'current' is a fiction.  If anything is passing between them, it's got to be the electrons, not the 'current'.  Like Randall, I've fantasized about going back and setting Ben Franklin straight about this, but then I thought that removing that one little speed bump in everyone's understanding of electricity could have accellerated technology just that little bit that would have resulted in having the atomic bomb in time for World War I.  So, I've decided not to go back, it may have been a mistake with a highly practical outcome.
 
 
Is there a timeline (50% of them, I suppose) that have Ben getting it right, in which things go horribly wrong?
