    Yeah, I got a good, healthy laugh out of that line. Between prac phys, mishaps with a taser, and experimenting with my own high voltage power supplies, Volts and I have had several heated arguments. Like, to the tune of a kilovolt or ten (in the case of the taser).
    Oh, and there’s something about Ryan’s eyes in the left panel there. Much like the face of a child about to stick a fork in an outlet… for the second time.

    Oh, and that reminds me of a great story.
    I think I was 9 or 10 years old. I had recently acquired, from my grandfather, an ancient, hand-crank telephone generator.
    (I’m sure I’m not relating the dialog even close to verbatim, but kidz dunt talk 2 gud, y’know?)
    “Hey Rob,” I told my (older) brother, “I’ve got a great idea. Let’s attach this long wire to the generator. You stand ready on the crank, and I’ll sneak up behind someone. When I give you the signal, we’ll give them a shock.”
    So, I walked in a big circle. Never out of sight, mind you. I touched the wires to his back… “Now!”
    Surprisingly, it worked. Not surprisingly, I got a lot of exercise running for my life.

    Nice story, Lemming!
    I naturally this of the good old Capacitor Wars that Julius Su had in Fleming House when he was a frosh.
    I won’t go into details right now — and you can read about it in a certain book when it comes out in May — but suffice it to say that most of our O Chem colab sessions for the entire year would start with Julius bragging about the new capacitor he had just acquired. Opening the doors to rooms was pretty dangerous back then. [[moment of silence for hyperspace]]
