Jack SparX was handing out electrical shocks from his Van de Graaff generator this morning when I snapped this shot. The feeling of getting a shock is strange. It’s not exactly a great sensation, but it’s not terrible either. I found it funny to watch people keep coming back for more after jumping back in surprise. He had a bunch of us stand in a line touching each other – I was on the end. When he made contact with the first person, we all jumped. It’s amazing how quickly an electrical charge travels!
