    Lol, we actually did this in our physics class a couple of weeks ago. The teacher brought in an old crank driven generator orignally used to charge REALLY old phones. So we all wet our palm and stood in a circle holding hands and he cranked the handle giving us all a shock.

    that was ok, hurt a little until someone went and got a cordless drill, only me and another bloke were game enough to try it and held hands and the electrodes and got a massive shock that had our arms tingling for ages.

    twas fun :)

    hey,
    i made that circuit, without the transformer and connected it to an oscilloscope driven by the soundcard of my PC to get an idea of the frequency
    well, it said that the relay is vibrating at 480Hz!
    Is that even possible?!
    i was expecting something under a 100

    and KrumLink i once fried my digital camera (just the flash unit) after shorting the main capacitor with a screwdriver :D
