On trying to explain Faraday's cage to M2:
"...actually they got this idea from the chylomicrons which incidentally have a central hydrophobic lipid core surrounded by a hydrophillic shell of phospholipids with their polar portions on the surface that makes them soluble in aqueous solutions so they smuggle the lipid core along as well which the port authorities really hate but the pirates need the money and so in this case what's on the surface is what really counts while the crux goes along for a free ride and repays the mateys instead by drinking up all their rum. And all it says when confronted is Parley! "
Me: Oh. My bad.
