Positive ground depends on proper circuit functioning, which is the
transmission of negative ions by retention of the visible spectral
manifestation known as "smoke"..

Smoke is the thing that makes electrical circuits work. We know this to be
true because every time one lets the smoke out of an electrical circuit, it
stops working. This can be verified repeatedly through empirical testing.

For example, if one places a copper bar across the terminals of a battery,
prodigious quantities of smoke are liberated and the battery shortly ceases
to function. In addition, if one observes smoke escaping from an electrical
component such as a Lucas voltage regulator, it will also be observed that
the component no longer functions. The logic is elementary and inescapable!

The function of the wiring harness is to conduct the smoke from one device
to another. When the wiring springs a leak and lets all the smoke out of the
system, nothing works afterward.

Starter motors were considered unsuitable for British motorcycles for some
time largely because they consumed large quantities of smoke, requiring very
unsightly large wires.

It has been reported that Lucas electrical components are possibly more
prone to electrical leakage than their Bosch, Japanese or American
counterparts. Experts point out that this is because Lucas is British, and
all things British leak. British engines leak oil, British shock absorbers,
hydraulic forks and disk brake systems leak fluid, British tires leak air
and British Intelligence leaks national defense secrets.

Therefore, it follows that British electrical systems must leak smoke. Once
again, the logic is clear and inescapable.

In conclusion, the basic concept of transmission of electrical energy in the
form of smoke provides a logical explanation of the mysteries of electrical
components - especially British units manufactured by Joseph Lucas, Ltd.

I've noticed this smoke numerous times, but didn't know where it came from. Thank you for clearing it up for me. So the next time I see it(and I will), I'll know I'm gonna need something new in the electrical area.

I always appreciate scientific answers to common mysteries.:yes::yes::yes::yes:

You have touched on the true nature of electricity, but there is more, and much deeper phenomena to considier on the subject.

The smoke it placed in the component at the factory, by the magician ( sometimes referred to as engineer ).

When the smoke is released from the component or circuit, the nature of the magic used to charge said component or circuit is rendered visible: white smoke = good magic, black smoke = evil.

furthermore, enough smoke is added to the circuit to ensure lifetime operation. The smoke is pressurized in circuit, and functions in opposition to atmospheric pressure and the resultant vacuum created by the lack of smoke therin. for instance, when you turn on the lights.. the pressure of the smoke in the stystem agains the abscence of smoke outside the system, causes the filament to heat, and hot photons to be released.

Any excessive load upon the circuit, ruptures the component and the smoke is released, rendering the component inert. When that happens, only the absolute best mage can reincarnate the device. However, most 'mages' are charlatains.. they give the 'illusion' of restoring power to the device, by utilizing intact components which have been 'charged' by true mages.
