As a pedant and a science geek I am compelled to point out that quantum models of electrons involve absolutely no bouncing.
Yes. Exactly. And they certainly don't "electrify each other
I was gonna cut him some slack on that one since it's cute with words and all, and the idea that electrons might be eager
to do anything. Failing on the premise of the analogy though was something I couldn't just let slide.
I must say I enjoyed your note, and will think of this for the next edition. Not sure what that might look like, but again, I liked your point.
More broadly--and not related to your post--I find this thread fascinating. Seems to me there's no greater proof for the 1,572-word paragraph as to what law students are in for.
In any event, I'm enjoying it. No doubt I've made other scientific faux pas in the book and elsewhere, so there's always tomorrow's critiques.
