In honor of the SigFig’s birthday, today’s post is about the moment I knew we really had something special.
It is, unsurprisingly, science-related.
Several years ago, we were walking along the waterfront and paused to rest on a high-backed plastic bench. I kissed him and felt a mild shock.
“You’re crackly. Discharge.”
Without missing a beat, he got up and touched his fingertip to a metal railing. He knew exactly what I meant and exactly what he had to do to rectify the situation.
And, just like that, I was hooked.
So what was going on here? It’s all about the electrons.
