You seem to be looking for some justification for something or other.
Quackery goes a lot further back on this forum than your presence does viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1260&p=20972&hilit=quackery#p20972

FFS do you have a brain!!!!

I was asked when am I going to post about audio, so I prove I have been posting about audio. I personally really couldn't give a sod if Moose has a Duck.

Wouldn't a question mark be more appropriate???
It must be difficult finding the right keys to press, when you're sat wearing your incognito cap and dark glasses.

I have stage four adenocarcenoma and the drug I take for it attacks all body cells that produce liquid like eye tear cells. This makes my eyes dry and very light sensitive, somedays worse than others. The first Uddersfield they were bad, had glasses on most of the time, last one not so bad. Cap is just habit and cold bald head,

Want to clutch at anymore straws. BTW this is your posting record you can compare with mine. search.php?keywords=&terms=all&author=T ... mit=Search - not much "audio" mostly about me, including my fav little girl flounce off the forum.

Interesting theory... http://www.synergisticresearch.com/fuses/blue/ but they forgot about AC :roll:

Well its as much gibberish about DC as AC IMHO.

Frequently asked questions.
Q: Are fuses directional?
A: Yes, fuses are directional. Electricity should flow from the left to the right when you view the fuse. If you do not know the direction of flow you should listen to the fuse inserted in both directions. One direction will sound more detailed. This is the correct way.
Damn. I knew I was missing something. What happens if my electrons want to flow up and down instead of left to right? What about AC? Does half my music sound crap 50 or 60 times a second? Who wants that!
Q: Do fuses have a burn in period?
A: Yes, most products have a settling in period. The first 200-300 hours of use are the most crucial.

If electrons never leave their atoms, how do valves work?

They don't. It's magic, stupid.

Sadly, late one night I wrote some of this up... viewtopic.php?f=9&t=3833&p=81203&hilit=coulombs#p81203

The electrons on the anode wave at the electrons on the cathode, the more the cathode electrons are waved at the more they jump about in excitement, the more they jump about the more they slip off their atoms and fall down the wire out of the valve. The voltage on the grid looks interesting to the cathode electrons, so as it increases they watch that more than the waving anode electrons, so jump up and down less, so the falling off the atom current decreases.

Simples.
