    But, AFAIK, that refers to the energy state of electrons, and it _is_ a
    vast leap across a gulf of immense energy, atomically speaking.

    But, some physicist will be coming along shortly to beat my ears with
    the facts....

    It also refers to a dreadful TV show, but, that's another matter.
