remember Newton: "a body at rest remains at rest unless actedupon by
an external force"

the bubbles don't go sideways by "magic"... they go sideways
be-cause they go with the flow (the heat-induced currents)
within the pan... the movement discloses the flow...

...no "charge"... no "attraction"... no "repulsion"...

..."just" the flow, and stuff going with it.
