Yeah, I wonder about that too. I remember a physics prof. saying that a
beaker of (-) charge next to a beaker of (+) charge would attract each
other, but in practicality, one can't store enough charge and keep it
for very long. But it seems you could hang onto it for quite a while
using a good dielectric like teflon and an accelerator.
