ElectroBOOM : I drew the winner of the Keysight Scope! The lucky guy is: - Luis Enrique G. S. Thanks everyone to enter the draw. FBI pays good money for your emails, HAHAHA! Just kidding, they already have all our emails...

Smooth. : Holy shit that lamp scared me

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?

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...

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

OHM-968692 : 0:57 I T *H E R T Z*

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.

Mustafa Ahmed : 4:56 Circuit Designing Intensifies!

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 ;)

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.

The Dutch Texan : I know why it is no longer comment to enter the giveaway... GIMME DA SCOOPA just doesn't work as well as GIMME DA METAH!

Crucial Muzic : Shame nothing is encrypted though, I'm sure the NSA is loving that... That's why it's always nice to use the *Signal* app:

Cadwaladr : Phone lines support classics for sure. My 70 year old Western Electric Model 302 phone still works fine. I even made a recording of its bell ringing and use it for the ringtone on my mobile phone.

John Grey : 4:57 had to watch this part over and over. Brilliant!

Chill Frost : @4:57 *MEHDITATION*

Techommentary : I'm actually curious- what does the caller ID transfer noise sound like? Just like touch tone dialing?

justThisFool : One of his personalites must've threw that lamp.

ebol08 : 7:06 This is the first time I see a Deus Ex Machina event that causes problem instead of solving it.

Addamcor : Circuit isn't warm...Everything looks goo- *LAMP ATTACK*

G55 : Didnt your city face problems when you almost shorted the line with a capacitor

G55 : Wait a minute....It is a reupload

Cyprian Guerra : ElectroBOOM can you make a video about the truth behind all those peltier module ACs and their real efficiency?

Caden Smith : You should do some sort of a project with a Raspberry Pi computer

Evan'sWorld : 0:53 0.25x speed

HyperTC : 0:36 LMFAO 😂😂😂😂

KatjaPurrs : Haha! When I was a kid i wired an extension to my mom's sewing room so that we could have computer with email (mom said Internet was the devil.) Everything was fine until someone called us and I got surprised by 160 volts:P Of course I didn't realize exactly why this had happened until I went to the library the next day to search Altavista. My efforts were rewarded by discovering a problem with Juno's ad proxy software where there was a particular ad that gave me unrestricted Internet access at home, hence I learned being electrocuted is a good thing :)


Get some knowledge : You purposefully scare people 😠

Matt Nicholson : The pride of Canada!!!

Arnel De Leon : The "FULL BRIDGE RECTIFIER!" returns
