This is a video of the Backyard Scientist and friends (who I’m contacting my congressperson right now to verify have already been added to a government watch list for future supervillains) using a 20,000-volt capacitor to blow up a bunch of hot dogs and bananas. But I was going to eat those! Still, the next time you order a hot dog when you’re out to eat somewhere it might not be a bad idea to make it clear you do not want it cooked with a 20,000-volt capacitor. ‘Here, tell them to just boil it in my hot dog water,” I imagine telling the waitress while producing a Thermos from my oversized fanny-pack.
Keep going for the video, but the hotdog action begins around 4:00.
