DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME!

There's some pretty amazing stuff here. HUGE arcs, coin shrinking, lots of fun stuff. I like the Plexiglas "captured lightning" things they have. They remind me of fractal trees.

^What it looks like when substation grounding equipment malfunctions and a giant switch carrying 500k volts disconnects while hot (the site has a video)

This is both neat and somewhat unsettling at the same time!

Wow, that's awesome. I just love electricity. You're right, it is unsettling as well.
