Why dont we just use ion wind flowing through evacuated pipes?
I ask this because if we reduced the atmospheric pressure in the pipes somewhat, and made them out of a cheap yet durable insulating plastic, it seems to me that they would have the constant flow-rate of DC current, yet retain the low-resistance increased range of AC current, so it just feels odd to me... ...it would also make electricity more conventionally intuitive due to the fact that it would literally become a fluid flowing through a pipe, and maybe even be storable in "ion towers" that hold excess static charge... ...It could be safer, because surface charges are exactly that, surface charges, so: a foolish person who stuck a part of themselves into an electrical outlet: would only become covered in dangerous levels of electrity, rather than have danerous levels of electricity immediately begin bouncing around inside of them [or so I think].
It may make it somewhat less convenient when anyone tapping the pipe can drain the system, but our water plumbing already contends with that fact, and seems to still work fine, for the most part.
You would need to increase the resistance of nozzels that tap into the ions for electricity to prevent it from all discharging through one home/tap any time multiple people tried to access it, but that seems like it could be mitigated easily with some math and resistor circuits, so why don't we use insulating pipes of ion wind as opposed to AC or DC?
