How does a bad, orphan son of a woman

And a Scotsman, dropped in the middle of a forgotten spot in the Caribbean
By providence, impoverished, in squalor, grow up to be a hero and a scholar?
The 10 dollar
Founding father without a father
Got a lot farther by working a lot harder, by being a lot smarter
By being a self-starter, by 14 they placed him in charge of a trading charter
And everyday while slaves were being slaughtered and carted away
Across the waves, he struggled and kept his guard up
Inside he was longing for something to be a part of
The brother was ready to beg, steal, borrow or barter
Then a hurricane came, and devastation reigned
Our man saw his future drip, dripping down the drain
Put a pencil to his temple, connected it to his brain
And he wrote his first refrain, a testament to his pain
Well the word got around, they said
"This kid is insane, man!"
Took up a collection just to send him to the mainland
"Get your education, don't forget from whence you came
And the world's gonna know your name. What's your name man?"
Alexander Hamilton
My name is Alexander Hamilton
And there's a million thing I haven't done
But just you wait, just you wait
When he was 10, his father split, full of it, debt ridden
2 years later, see Alex and his mother bed-ridden
Half-dead, sitting in their own sick, the scent thick
And Alex got better but his mother went quick
Moved in with a cousin, the cousin committed suicide
Left him with nothing but ruined pride, something new inside
A voice saying, "Alex you gotta fend for yourself"
He started retreating and reading every treatise on the shelf
There woulda been nothing left to do for someone less astute
He woulda been dead and destitute without a cent of restutition
Started working, clerking for his late mother's landlord
Trading sugar cane and rum and all the things he can't afford
Scanning for every book he can get his hands on
Planning for the future, see him now as he stands on
The bow of a ship headed for a new land
In New York you can be a new man
Just you wait
(In New York you can be a new man) Just you wait
In New York you can be a new man
In New York (New York)
Just you wait!
Alexander Hamilton (Alexander Hamilton), we're waiting in the wings for you (waiting in the wings for you)
You could never back down, you never learned to take your time
Oh, Alexander Hamilton (Alexander Hamilton), when America sings for you
Will they know what you overcame?
Will they know you rewrote the game?
The world will never be same, oh
The ship is in the harbor now, see if you can spot him
Another immigrant coming up from the bottom
His enemies destroyed his rep, America forgot him
We fought with him
Me? I died for him
Me? I trusted him
Me? I loved him
And me? I'm the damn fool that shot him
There's a million thing I haven't done
But just you wait
What's your name man?
Alexander Hamilton!

So non metals are bad insulators, and since u wouldnt use paper towels to keep something hot for a long time they would be a bad insulator.

Paper towel would technically work as an insulator, depending on what type you were using. The thicker the better, by the way.

To determine whether paper towels are conductors or insulators, we first need to understand the properties of conductors and insulators.

Conductors are materials that allow the flow of electricity or heat through them easily. They have free electrons that can move around and carry electric charge or thermal energy. Metals like copper and aluminum are excellent conductors of both electricity and heat.

Insulators, on the other hand, are materials that do not conduct electricity or heat effectively. They have tightly bound electrons that do not move easily, preventing the flow of electric charge or thermal energy. Examples of insulators include rubber, plastic, and dry wood.

Now, let's focus specifically on paper towels. Dry paper towels are considered good insulators. The reason is that paper contains cellulose fibers, which act as effective barriers to electricity and heat transfer. These fibers are surrounded by air pockets, further hindering the flow of electricity or heat. As a result, the paper towel doesn't allow the easy passage of electric charge or thermal energy, making it a good insulator.

It's important to note that paper towels can lose their insulating properties when wet. Water is a conductor, and when it saturates the paper towel, it can create pathways for electricity or heat to travel through, reducing its insulating ability. So, for accurate results, it's essential to consider the dry state of the paper towel when evaluating its insulating properties.
