    But because they push other electrons and so down the chain, the energy is transfered way fucking fast.
    And still light wins the race.
    my bad, was 2am and was tired, and been focussing on semiconductors and currents in them lots recently, so mind was there. hehe, it's funny how you are always more likely to get the first year or high school questions wrong.

    So yeh I agree, the electrons move slow but electricity in the sense of information doesn't and that's what counts here. And yep it gets close but light is faster.

    Freude, schöner Götterfunken Tochter aus Elysium, Wir betreten feuertrunken, Himmlische, dein Heiligtum! Deine Zauber binden wieder Was die Mode streng geteilt; Alle Menschen werden Brüder, Wo dein sanfter Flügel weilt.
