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

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

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

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

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

Mustafa Ahmed : 4:56 Circuit Designing Intensifies!

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.

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

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.

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...

Lune : 7:40 tfw the bass drops O.o

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

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.

Mark Zaikov : I was waiting for something to blow up and then the f*cking lamp happened.

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 ;)

Chill Frost : @4:57 *MEHDITATION*

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

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

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

no name : The fails are at 0:50 3:40 7:05 Thank me later

finna nut finna nut : 7:40 I'm permanently deaf now

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!

Rotten Spice : You know many people have built that device,... it's called a "badge box". It was done over 20 years ago..... and highly illegal. *Dis clamor when you use it on your own phone line that you pay for you're ok. However it was originally designed to be used on other peoples phone lines which is a felony. (Fun fact, the U.S. Government has done this without a search/arrest warrent in the "name of national security" willy nilly,....which is not suppost to be legal.. how do you feel?) Let's talk in peace about it. :)

DaveTech CA : I like this guy looks so tough but he is very funny. Didn't realize he is Canadian eh? Thanks for another good laugh man! Yep been zapped by the lines only when it rings but of course that's when you are holding the bare wires ;) Back to my gpu crypto mining channel.

Evan'sWorld : 0:53 0.25x speed

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 :)

Sandeep naik : Do you giveaway for student because i don't have budget to buy electronics such as 3d printer.

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

Prakash D Jr : 0:36 😂😵 I Quit....

Apple Alien : Rare footage of Hillary campaign leaders wiretapping the trump building 2016 colorized

worm worm : 4:54 Seems im not the only one.

Hank Hill : I have to wiretap my phone line because I’m from Canada to never knew you could do it Such an amazing video

赵蓝聪NC5 : Canada guys is nice and best

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

sandman9601 : Was messing with electronics when very young and realized you can connect the red + green wires of a phone line to an RCA audio input on a stereo and listen in on calls. Also quickly learned to keep the volume low, especially if it rings. The people on the line have no idea you tapped it (no click like when picking up an extension phone).

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

Matt Nicholson : The pride of Canada!!!

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:

classicryda120908 : i thought this would be another harmless video because hes messing around with just a telephone line.. then the lamp happened.. i wonder if electroboom add some jumpscare to his video with a lamp because he simply cant find any exploding element in this experiment..

semen montage68 : 3:01 haha remembered my child hood

KCTV Programme 'Recording : In Greece you can't wiretap your own conversations. Both parties must consent.

R.A.S Gaming : Welcome the FBI watchlist boys

My Me : 48v dc.......(0_o) you mean i could run a 48v dc to 120/240v ac power inverter and power my house bypassing the power company lol

iGrace : If you were lost after the soon to come apocalypse, could you charge a battery or device with the abandoned phone lines?

Tricksyz : Don’t listen to that chime that plays when he calls at night

HyperTC : 0:36 LMFAO 😂😂😂😂

Terry Johnson : Hello? Hello? *OoOooOoOoooooOooOoO*
