For physics, were going around to different freshman and sophomore classes earlier this week and talking about how cool physics is, and one of the things we did was play with a tesla coil.

Normally what we did was just hold onto the business end of it while we were talking, and wander around the front row and touch people with the tips of our fingers to give them a little jolt. It got them interested.

However, at the end of one of the presentations, a kid stands up and rips off his shirt dares one of the kids giving the presentation to shock his nipple. Well, he did, and it was amazing.

Pointless? yes. But sometimes it's a good thing to have some stupid humour in one's life.

Yet another good example of the human race devolving into neanderthals. I guess it had to happen. Everything happens in cycles.

Kids are tougher these days. Nipples... ow!

If he didn't survive, I think that would have guaranteed him a Darwin award.

But you probably weren't playing around with those coils to begin with, anyway [Smile]
