is it not simply because the thicker the material the less electrical resistance. So the majority of the hydrogen ions will go preferable to the thicker negative electrode?

when i think more about this, there might even be a potential difference between the two kathodes....
There must be, otherwise they would not act like this

i imagine that there is indeed...!

even if its very small would give this effect

if you want to see something even more strange isolate your system and apply high voltage to it as well in reference to ground or to the outside of your water tank...

there you will have ions

i imagine the thinner electrode is maybe more negative.. but you could confirm that using a multimeter

here is a drawing of the situation i think is happening

thinking a little more about it the hydrogen itself may be charging the electrodes...

when you bubble hydrogen on a metal it get negatively charged..

this is pretty much the concept of a fuel cell.

If i remember, it might be the case that Kevin had an electromagnet around the bar that connects the two rond electrodes...
Then you have to deal with a magnetic field that attracks the hydrogen gas....

here is an idea

i forgot to add a capacitor at the ac line...

actually only a capacitor is needed on the ac line those L coils should not be there
