it was recently pointed out to me that electrical generators don't actually generate _electricity_ since energy can't be created or destroyed. they convert energy. but then, what are they generating?
generators are sources of _low entropy_, in the form of electric current, and I'm still trying to wrap my head around that.
@ashfurrow they're moving entropy around, the low-entropy fuel gets turned into high entropy hot air and carbon dioxide
