    Or a lot of them .. judiciously applied to vulnerable points…

    Nothing to do with welding….
    when not used to mean stimulation by electric current,
    either literally or metaphorically,
    it means to coat with a thin layer of zinc,
    either by means of an electric current or by hot dipping, to help prevent corrosion.


    Galvanised metal, usually steel, has a crystalline pattern, rather like frost makes sometimes on a window.

    Anyway, I wanted to thank DavidHuieGreen for explaining for me, yesterday, in my absence.


    Didn’t mean to confuse you, JimmyH…
    just being funny….
    or not.

    You did nothing wrong. I am oblivious to things that are right in front of me sometimes haha.

    I am galvanised to comment…have we ever seen Trout without a drink (or sandwich) in her hand?

    Getting the nation’s youth (whatever the year) galvanized into action has never been a problem. The problem has been to get them all moving in any predetermined direction. It’s sort of like herding cats.

    You know I’d do anything for you, especially after you mention hot dip galvanizing . (Shiny chain link fences are usually hot dip galvanized which is interesting since those zinc coated by actual electroplating usually rust soon due to zinc loss.)

    Agnes is doing what so many do by using words she’s heard without being sure of the usage. To be honest, all of us did it while learning to talk — making sounds and seeing if they got the desired response from the big people.

    My younger brother, although older than I, Howard, maintained that was why Raymond (the other brother, whose birthday anniversary is today) was so much bigger. When Raymond grunted, they thought it meant he was hungry, whereas when poor Howard grunted, they thought it meant he wanted to go potty.

    ………as in batteries, frog legs and a HS biology class.

    And it was the fact that galvanic action could make a dead frog’s leg twitch which partly inspired Mary Shelley to write Frankenstein or; The Modern Prometheus
    (actually, the muscle wasn’t really fully dead yet but that’s a philosophical question best posed to Agnes)

    Cattle prods, electric currents, hot dipping. ….. Isn’t herding cats easier than herding the very young or the very old? (Both do what they want and both will throw nasty things at you.. things you do not want to know….)

    I’m trying to figure out how swineherds do it too after trying to direct the movements of one young boar recently. Maybe you just grab the tusks and hope for the best.
