We did this with a Tesla coil in high school chemistry class 20 years ago. Smells like ozone and vinegar.

Some people would ask "why? why would you make something like this?"

The proper answer would of course be "why not?"

I thought there was a rule against pickle pictures ever since the Lucky pickle incident?

I did one of those back in college circa 1998. Thank you P&T's book "How to Play with Your Food."

We even got someone to eat the charred black pickle afterwards. 'Cause yeah, it started sizzling and smoking..

I did a Tesla coil in the grade science fair in 1970, next year they had no science fair.  It was great fun.

Wasting enough energy to power a city block on something that can't even light up the corner of a room? And humans wonder why the rest of the universe treats them like children?

Meanwhile, people think they need monster computers with 1000w power supplies to feed them and gigantic monitors... to look at cat .gifs and forums that waste 99% of their bandwidth on pointless graphics.
