The kids are without power. We find out why we need electricity.

The Nox epidemic gets another boost when the power goes out. The kids figure out how to hack a car battery but the situation has gotten worse. In this episode we'll look at how much electricity is a part of our lives thanks to the electric motor. We'll also answer these questions: What is electricity anyway? (hint: it's like going tobogganing but for electrons). Can electric eels charge their own cellphones (no)? Could they (yes)? And who is George Westinghouse? Also, what does an Australian metal band from the 70s and a cartoon from the 80s have to do with the power grid? The answers are shocking.
