//yesterday //Kaluta has car battery, claims that 12V DC, being less than 40V, is safe, asks if anyone wants to try it Kaluta: You can hold your fingers down, even though you're getting shocked, and try to look like you're not, and we'll have to decide if you're getting shocked. Kaluta: Or you can act like you're being shocked, when you're not. We'll see how good an actor you are. //Will steps up, touches the battery briefly, falls backward onto floor Will: Aaahhh! The burn! Kaluta: "How did you break your butt? Well, I fell, when I DIDN'T get shocked." //today Kaluta: We know this battery is safe to touch. It's only twelve volts. //Kaluta repeatedly touches the battery, unharmed, and points at Will Will: You must have replaced it with a fake battery.
Schafer: And the battery can say, "Yo. I'm a twelve-volt battery. I'm giving you twelve volts!"
// Discussing how batteries work Schafer: Pee in a jar, label it apple juice, set it aside.
