    Sweet!!! Just curious, what did you burn with it? And, do you need a welding mask to view it when it's burning? I ask because I've never seen thermite burn except on the Internet. I'm sure I could find an answer to my second question but it makes for better conversation this way.

    Haha, yeah... Some people are just suckers. They will make me roll up my sleeves, some even asked me to do it shirtless. No problem. Nobody thought to look at my ankle or the bottom of my shoe. Had they done so they would have found a 7.5kv negative ion generator, an inverter and a 9v battery. Alas, so many are so easily fooled. It is cool though. Anything small like sand will go nuts under my hand.

    You can also disrupt/fry electronics by going near/touching them. I like it almost as much as I like my Wave Bubble (RF jammer).

    Short answer, yes. Long answer.... I don't use a welding mask, I have tinted shields(safety glasses) and I keep my distance. I didn't use it for any usefull purpose. I just like the light show. I set up some bricks and kept it in a well ventilated open area w/ no nearby combustibles. Incendiaries are great. You just gotta know how to properly handle the materials and it's reasonably safe. It's really easy to make and being on a farm, you should have all the space you need. If you are interested in the method, PM me. I know it's something one can easilly find w/ a google search, it's just that I don't post specifics like that... for obvious reasons.

    Well, it is clear you are gaining some edumacation, but that is only for the masses, edjacumacation is for geniusists, and your wikimedia is of course the best place to get full gnoledge of uvernisal fax of stuff.

    Thanks Syn for replying to my question. Sounds pretty fun and if I ever need the recipe like maybe around the 4th of July I'll give you a shout.

    The 7.5kv negative ion generator, an inverter and a 9v battery thing has me rolling though. Great party trick fo sho!

    Yeah it's all good fun. If you build one, just make sure you use like a 5 watt wimpy inverter or it will not go well for you. A 7.5kv neg ion generator can be used as a nasty transformer.

    Good to know. I would imagine it could be quite the jolt.

    Yeah, I mean, a 9v battery wont even work with a 75w inverter. Whatever is used, just make sure it isn't a large AC source. And my god DO NOT plug it into the wall lest you will be given the jolt of your lifetime. 7500v is no joke, even with the low amperage.

    It takes roughly 20mA to stop a human heart. Under the right conditions it doesn't take much.

    I used to build towers, I spent most of my time building the substation and the genset. Basically its a room sized unit that powers the whole building. One rookie dropped a panel cover into it and it landed across two busbars. Ugh, we were cleaning black of the walls for days. Luckily no injuries. Just ringing ears and a big dot on everything you focus on. I'm just glad I was elsewhere at the time. But man, what a mess. The panel cover ceased to exist. We couldn't even really find that much shrapnel. We accounted for about 10% of it, roughly.
