Need a reminder to hook your capacitors up correctly? Try watching this video by Dave of EEVblog, exploding capacitors in high speed. Taking advantage of his new high speed camera, he filmed the thermal breakdown caused by reverse biasing on a number of different types of polarized capacitors. Neat effect,, but certainly not something I would want to happen next to a freshly designed circuit board.
