|Joseph John Thomson physics|
- The unit of electrical charge
- is carried by particles accelerating around atoms
- bound or flying quickly from their orbits.
- J. J. Thomson realized that cathode rays
- were streams of these corpuscles, he called them,
- with the same electric charge
- and the same mass
- no matter what they were flying from.
- Thomson thought that atoms were bundles
- of thousands of these corpuscles
- bound together like plums
- in a positively charged pudding.
- Sir Electron captures a photon
- to free the world of stupidity and fear—well,
- he does not successfully conquer stupidity or fear.
- Sir Electron binds hydrogens to oxygens
- to make a bucket of water,
- which he drinks and uses to wash his hands.
- Sir Electron powers lights and motors
- to keep our factories and offices running.
- They keep us running, too.
- Sir Electron experiments with molecules
- to make chemicals that affect our basic physiology.
- Drug companies make millions.
- Sir Electron gives us productivity devices,
- but these don’t make us more productive.
- We eagerly await version 11, the next sequel.
- Body chemistry
- binds us together.
- Binary units—
- male and female.
- Young romance
- at our age.
