OBTW, in the picture there, those three (ground) electrodes are positive electrodes, not negative. In non-waste spark systems, the center electrode is negative with respect to the outside/ground electrodes. It's electrically more efficient for spark production when the hotter terminal (the center electrode) is connected to the negative side of the ignition coil secondary circuit.

Yes, I think it really is necessary. You just proved it.

The only reason someone would want insurance is if they want to pay someone elses bills or want someone else to pay their bills.

BIGOT is a word used by people that can't use logical reasoning to prove that you are wrong when you don't agree with them.
