Wow, you almost figured out the Italian theory of electricity. It turns
out that electricity is actually composed of smoke. This is why when you
see smoke comming out of the insulation of the wiring in an Italian
piece of exotica (Ducati, Ferrari, etc.) you can bet there is a hole in
the insulation letting it out. Just ask any owner of these vehicles.
They have seen it. :-)
