Recycled Electrons

This article is publish pending until we figure out where the used electrons are located,

so they can be recirculated and recycled thru the distribution system.

My Free Science Lab furnishes you these pages to be displayed on your monitor with recycled electrons. Electricity is the movement of electrons and they are neither destroyed or created in the process. So enjoy and remember to recycle.
