What an ignorant. How do you actually work with electronics? Self-taugh no doubt. It shines through. Well, I'll leave you and your "genius" buddies who seem to agree with you - must be the number of posts that empowers you lot - with this brief article written by a real-life engineer:
"High voltage alone isn't dangerous: Van de Graaff generators are popular in science museums. The large demonstration stage versions can easily produce 500,000 volts; I've used one to make a lot of kids' hair stand up. ...
To keep it simple, if there's no charge moving through you (i.e. if you're not carrying CURRENT), then you're not going to suffer any great harm. This is why van de Graaff generators are SAFE: the voltages are HIGH, but the CURRENTS involved are at MICROAMPERE levels or less. There's just NOT VERY MUCH ENERGY being transferred to somebody touching the generator."
Now, pleae go about your daily BS. I won't interfere any longer. No need. Those who respond have no knowledge to contribute with anyway.
I can see that you "geniuses" haven't even heard of Van de Graaf's generator, let alone about Nikola Tesla. For you "Tesla" is just the name of a car factory. Let me quote a few intelligent and educated people from your area, usa not canada, but nevertheless...:
IT'S THE C U R R E N T

Feel free not to respond. I lack time for garage "engineers" with fundamentals never found (uneducated BS talkers like you).

Thank you for your response Arlo. interesting view on voltage. However, voltage is the difference between the potentials, if you wish to talk about the basics. The current is the "push" as you so colourfully call it.
WOW NO YOU ARE 100% WRONG.
DUDE I WILL TYPE MY FIRST POST IN ALL CAPS BECAUSE IF YOU WE HERE IN PERSON I WOULD NOT BE NEARLY AS NICE TO YOU! YOU ARE GIVING ADVICE THAT WILL KILL PEOPLE ON A PUBLIC frocking FORUM!
VOLTS = PUSH (OR PRESSURE)
AMPS = FLOW OF ELECTRONS (MEASUREMENT OF FLOW)
OHMS = RESISTANCE (RESISTANCE TO FLOW)
YES ITS AMPS THAT WILL STOP YOU HEART. BUT IT TAKES PUSH/RESISTANCE TO DETERMINE THE AMPS AS I TRIED TO POINT OUT.
IF YOU REFUSE TO GET THIS CORRECT WE WILL ALL JUMP ALL OVER YOU AS THIS IS VERY DANGEROUS! PEOPLE HAVE BEEN KILLED FROM MUCH LOWER VOLTAGES THEN ARE DISCUSSED HERE.
STOP THE BS!
