Electricity is like me, really lazy... will definately take the shortest 
path. It actually doesnt necesarily have to be the 'shortest' path, but 
certainly the one with least resistance. In a splitfire plug, you will 
not get a V shaped spark, implying 2 sparks just because you have 2 
electrodes. As mentioned, it is just for longevity.  High energy 
ignitions are the same, least resistance. You can get more than one point 
(But not at the same time generally...) with a longer duration spark, or 
MSD. (no, not Microsoft Diagnostics...) Just more sparks...
