ElectroBOOM : Jeez! Had to reupload the video. Some smart people were decoding my cellphone number from caller ID noise in the video! Anyways, feel free to post questions or comments in ElectroBOOM subreddit:

Smooth. : Holy shit that lamp scared me

Growing Answers : When you shocked your tongue, my motion light in my house turned off above me at the exact same time. Couldn’t have been timed more perfectly. And it makes a loud click when it turns off. Talk about 4D...

John - Orbiter : Sorry ElectroBOOM.. I just wasn't happy with the second mention of the full bridge rectifier at 5:30. It MUST be said with the usual gusto & feeling, so.. FOOOOL BRIIIDGE REEECTIFIER, ok ;)

coryman125 : "Never set a bad example" -ElectroBOOM, shortly after licking a live wire :)

Crucial Muzic : LOL that slap to the face scared me [0:35], but had me in tears Jesus that lamp drop around 7:03 had me jump out of my chair. I swear he's out to get me

World of Zero : "Never set a bad example"... ...have you watched any of your other videos?

Justin Y. : This whole video is an FBI sting operation

Matthew Moore : My Great Grandmother was Deaf, So we wired up a Lamp in the Living room up on a shelf, that would light up whenever the phone was ringing. We tapped off the signal circuit and used some parts from an old phone to trip a relay which turned the lamp on and off with the rings. She couldn't actually talk on the phone since she was deaf. But She would pick up the receiver and say. "Hello, Could you hold on one moment?" And she would get my great grandfather to come to the phone. He would usually be outside working in the yard. And his brother lived in the house right next door. So there was always somebody not far away that could come and take the call. I'm not sure how that would work with today's phones that use VOIP. Would probably just have to gut a phone and tap off the PCB or something.

Steets : When the electricity doesn't get him, his light fixtures do.

Hey I'm a Maker : The giveaway is a great idea!

derekcolman : I got caught like that. I was wiring up an extension second phone. Someone phoned me while I was connecting the wires and I got zapped.
