    It really is perfectly safe. As long as you don't ground yourself somehow, there's no problem...

    Hmmm...I should dig out some pictures of my Tesla Coil...

    ive seen that on ya site, tesla coil.

    its cool, and i hopefully do some electronic course in the near future, so i would know how things actually work, not just doing what some diagram says (although i dont understand those schematics quite well)

    Or even without the water, your foot on the floor would probably be fatal. 50,000V finds a ground very quickly through most materials.

    I should put up some of my Tesla Coil pictures (if I can find them). There's a few good ones of me wearing necklaces made of glowing neon bulbs holding a neon septer (sp?). I also have some where I am shooting 12 inch arcs out of a thimble on my finger to a friend holding a fluorescent lamp...and there's of course the ever popular 3" plasma sphere using a "fat albert" style light bulb filled with argon...sigh, I have too much time on my hands....

    sounds a bit like the van der graaf generator thing.... we had 2 stand on blocks of polystyrene...

    also, would be be possible to make red alert style tesla's, as i`m thinking about making my own car alarm

    Cool

    The Van De Graff generator is childs toy compared to the raw unalulterated power of the Tesla Coil.

    A Red Alert style Tesla Coil isn't really possible or practicle. The output of the Tesla Coil does not lend itself to destructive purposes, and is very difficult to aim and control.

    hmm, tesla coil....tons of FUN!! I made one of those a few years back.

    i saw on CNN a while back of a guy who made a tesla coil and he was in a metal suit and the coil was shooting like 5 ft. and hitting his suit. looked cool as hell.
