    Hey all,
    A couple of days ago, I went to one of my friend's houses, who happens
    to be a techincal buff. His latest creation was an AC (or DC, can't
    remember) to static electricity converter. It was really cool, and
    could do a bunch of things, including one of those plasma globes.
    Though being a techincal buff, he's not very organized, so he doesn't
    know HOW he made it. It's hard to look at the item and find out how,
    since it's covered in electrical tape to prevent shocking yourself.
    Just wondering if it was possible for you to give me instructions for

    Thanks! You guys rock!

    Right. These things happen by accident all the time. No problem.
    After all, it's only technology, which improves all by itself....

    Probably not, especially if the guy there, who built it, doesn't know
    how it works. We are not magicians, you know.

    Go to the other side of google and think up some clever phrases to
    search on, and you'll surely find something.

    Good Luck!

    did, verily,
    You describe several things, so here's the quickest and cheapest way (from
    my point of view) to help is this:

    Google the following strings:

    "high voltage" static
    "high voltage" tesla
    "high voltage" flyback

    You'll find a wonderful world out there!

    One warning: high voltage bites -- sometimes harmlessly, sometimes fatally,
    usually somewhere in between. Consistent, somewhat obsessive care is
    necessary if you're working with most high voltage devices. Chuck Darwin
    has an award all ready and made out in your name, and he's standing right
    behind your left shoulder, ready to make it official by signing his name.
    Make him wait a VERY long time.

    Best of luck, and enjoy!


    PS -- And, remember: Natural selection works!

    Well, that should take care of the "intelligent design" debate. ;-D
