One of life's great mysteries to me is why the professional electronics
community continues to propagate the falsehood of "conventional" current flow.
It is as if civil engineers designed things based on water that flows uphill. 

Perhaps in the next life the creator can explain it to me. No one in this life
ever has.  :-)
