I Have Reached A New Realm: I Am a Tesla Coil

It has become so dry and cold and my fleece blanket is so electron generous that every time I touch anything metal or even water, the shock is enough to make all the ample hair on my arms stand on end.

This would be fine if I was looking for a thrill...but really, I just want to eat a dried apricot or drink a glass of water.

This, naturally, led me to read about Tesla coils. But really, I don't exactly understand how they work. This does not need to stop any of us from building one.

Instructions here:

Good luck.

In the meantime, as moisture comes in, the electrons on earth will have something to cling to instead of me and so the shocks will be less shocking.
