Well, you're paying insurance for things that will probably never happen, don't you? :P

We cannot even say where electricity comes from.

Then why the hell am I paying my electric bill?

No one has ever felt it?!?

Stuff like this gives homeschoolers' a bad name. Blech.

So homeschoolers can't explain electricity but they've seen the light. Oh good I'm already sleeping safer in my bed.

Indeed, Myers' comment brings a number of excellent points, perhaps the best of which is our own bodies' use of electricity to maintain life.

I guess what puts me off most of all is the determined and purposeful ignorance reflected in that page. If anything in this world truly frightens me, that does.

PZ Myer's blog commentary is quite good...
