    Apparently not. I have it on good authority that the AC current changes both POLARITY and DIRECTION every 1/60th of a second.

    Now, I bet even an experienced awedeeOHfile like you didn't know that AC had POLARITY did you? C'mon...admit it.

Of course not. How would any electricity get to the TV if it was constantly jumping back and forth, or "reversing direction" between the wall and the TV? The voltage, or the force that pushes the current, swings between a maximum and a minimum value, but the net flow of energy (electrical current) is forward from the wall to the TV.
    Really!!
    Maybe that is why there are two prongs on a power cord that carry current. Just a thought.
    We don't want too many at one time. Forget the math too. P=V x I is too complex.

    Don't you just love it!

    It appears some of the candy@sses are coming out of hiding now since tags have been eliminated.

    I concur as well.
    Do you hear that buzzing noise?
