  1. Please read the information at the following link:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zero-point_energy#Experimental_evidence

    This means that if you take a capacitor, and charge it up to it's rated
    maximum DC Voltage, and either pinch it in a vise, or hit it directly
    with a sledge hammer, it will explode. This excludes electrolytic
    capacitors.

    It means no such thing.

    You're still an idiot.

    I don't see how the two are related, or where one would even arrive at
    that conclusion. The article (at least to me anyway) seems to discuss
    something that is frankly, unknown. I don't believe scientists actually
    understand so-called quantum mechanics (yet).

    If you took a mythical huge capacitor with foil plates, charged it to some extreme
    high value and then smashed it, yes, the plates would come together forming a
    short which may produce sparks.

    If the dielectric were made of something like, oh.. gunpowder... you might get
    an explosion. :) (or if the power energy in the capacitor were high enough, you
    probably wouldn't even need the gunpowder) this would be more or less... a
    firecracker.

    Seems to me, several years when I was younger and, maybe not so careful, I
    charged an electrolytic with straight-line AC power. The electrolytic
    apparently vaporized, creating a pressure which resulted in a small explosion.

    So, yea, you can do weird freaky stuff with some capacitors. (I don't recall
    what type it is, I only have a vague recollection of doing it along with several
    other stupid tricks) I don't believe this would possibly have anything to do
    with zero point energy, just a vacuum of common sense. :)

  4. Was there ever a question? I kill filed the troll years ago.

    Pure bullshit.
     
  6. No. It'll open up a wormhole into an alternate universe into which you
    will be drawn and from which there is no internet connectivity to this
    one. Try it sometime.

    Snort !

    Best place for him ! ;~)

  8. Zero point energy is potential energy that is at rest, once you use any of
    the energy, it is no longer zero point.

    On the other hand you may be an example of zero point energy in that your
    energy is of ZERO Point!

    i think your watching too much TV...
    watching SG-A may not be the best
    educational tool at hand..
     
  10. It's funny because capacitor will explode.
     
  11. Okay, okay, the zero point energy was a bullshit line. But, still, if
    you charge up a high voltage capacitor 200 watt volts or greater and
    put it in a vice, or hit it with a sledge hammer while fully charged
    will explode. Just like a bullet mushrooms, the dielectric is
    typically plastic, or waxpaper, and when you apply pressure, it just
    get thin. Do it fast enough, and boom.

  13. There is a point, mento's suck, and explosions rule!

    You bet !
    What's a 'watt volt' ?
    Probably true. Is this useful though ?

  15. The three major philosophies of life are based on denials of those
    fundamental truths:

    1. Capitalists believe you can win
    2. Socialists believe you can break even
    3. Mystics believe you can quit the game.

    Cheers!

    Show us.
    Blow up a capacitor in a vise, and take videos.

    Otherwise, shut up and go read a book.

    Good-bye.

    Capitalists know you can win
    Socialists know that for them to win, you must lose.
    Communists know _you_ will lose; they win.
