    Electricity life = how you’re doing, currently.

  5. Algernon | 4:07 am |

    White light or blue

  6. Droll not Troll | 4:14 am |

    The length of bright is proportional to the height of color, if the angle of dangle… now I’m confused!

  7. Droll not Troll | 4:15 am |

    Enough of this electricity life; I’m going Ohm.

    Q: How many perverts does it take to screw in a light bulb?
    A: Only one, but it takes the whole emergency department to get it out.

    I never knew any Welsh people lived in Dalian.

    Men of Harlech off to glory,
    This will ever be the story,
    Be ye young or be ye hoary,
    Welshmen, yes, are we.

    BTW. Watt did you say, old china?

    Not to worry.

    It is just a phase the sign-writer is going through.

    Being Chinese, he also has 50 cycles.

    Sometimes, electricity life really hertz.

    LANXINGUANGDIAN! What a Chinese person might say after touching a live wire.

    Life long and phosphor!

    The sound of a fly buzzing in the house this morning, and possibly this post, gave me this earworm:

    @James: Gotta love that Vogon poetry!

    Eleclricity, Biotogy? Seems to me it’s Chemislry.

    @James: Chemistry itself is the result of electromagnetic interactions between atoms. So it too is a form of electricity.

    Pass. Yes, again. Where the heck is LANXINGUANGDIAN?
    I’ve decided to province some money and buy PHILIPS rather than this quasi-Welsh brand.

    Note – The Chinese word for ‘province’ (省) can also be used as a verb meaning ‘to save.’
