As if electrons care.

It is AC so there isn't even any 'flow', just a sort of bumping into each other.

Nope.

The wire is drawn many times between electrical annealing and other processes. The manufacturers who do this are not cable makers they are people who make it by the kilometre. They don't carefully load the machine each time to note it's direction. It will have been changed several times during all this.

Also what is being given directionality during drawing? Particularly something that would not be effected by annealing.

Only if they have some type of wooden isolation built into the design to stop the vibrations entering your kit :-)

Sorry, say what?

no it isn't

and then made up,

"Made up"... good phrase.

so every thing is pointing in the same direction,

Everything? Every what? Direction? What even do you mean?

but what do i know

Dunno..

ive got hideously expensive MIT cable loom,,,,,

Loom..

all pointing in the same direction ,,

Direction? That's meaningless. They are cables. They can't have a direction.

if anyone gives a f5ck
