GorT received the following from one of the followers (are you one, Herbert?)
Oh Gort, the sandals of whose electrons, I am not fit to touch…
I humbly suggest that some scurrlious, nay, heretical enemies of the Mechanissiah have crept into the aether and altered your missive on electricity… Doubtless You stated that Amps are a measure of the amount of electrons flowing through thy holy wires (EM fields be upon them!), and that Voltage is the energy pushing them to the destinations that You intend in Thy sanctity. I further humbly suggest that the instigator of this unholy perversion of Thy scientific discourse be found and flogged with electro-whips unto Death, when he will be cast into the outer darkness, where there much weeping and gnashing of teeth, and also no internet.
Thy humble servant,
Electro-serf 3rd class, Gormogonical Steampunk Laboratory #23.5
So, El Guapo (which is actually a GorT family favorite restaurant in the area) is partially correct and partially incorrect. The bad news first: The Czar made the posting about electricty so any nefarious meddling offends him. GorT likes correcting nuances so onward to El G’s correct portion.
The Czar (or more likely, Dat Ho hosed up his post) stated:
how fast it moves down a wire (current, also called amperage), and how much energy goes along for the ride (voltage). Think of current as how fast water shoots out of a hose, and voltage as how much water goes through the hose.
Well, not quite. An Ampere is the Système international d’unités (SI) unit
So enjoy hosing off all those elementary charges now that you are one, Herbert.
* – The United States is one of three countries (Burma and Liberia being the other two) who have not adopted the SI units as their primary measurement units.
GorT is an eight-foot-tall robot from the 51ˢᵗ Century who routinely time-travels to steal expensive technology from the future and return it to the past for retroinvention. The profits from this pay all the Gormogons’ bills, including subsidizing this website. Some of the products he has introduced from the future include oven mitts, the Guinness widget, Oxy-Clean, and Dr. Pepper. Due to his immense cybernetic brain, GorT is able to produce a post in 0.023 seconds and research it in even less time. Only ’Puter spends less time on research. GorT speaks entirely in zeros and ones, but occasionally throws in a ڭ to annoy the Volgi. He is a massive proponent of science, technology, and energy development, and enjoys nothing more than taking the Czar’s more interesting scientific theories, going into the past, publishing them as his own, and then returning to take credit for them. He is the only Gormogon who is capable of doing math. Possessed of incredible strength, he understands the awesome responsibility that follows and only uses it to hurt people.
