Re: priorities

Sockets are quantum so get "number" and "fewer". Electricity is not, so gets "amount" and "less".

That things like sugar and electricity really are made up of discrete particles is irrelevant, they don't look like a load of bricks so they are considered to be a fluid.

English does have rules. Really, truly, she actually does. Honest.
