The Modern Thinker

Peter Terren of Tesla Down Under (featured before on Neatorama) did a take on Rodin's The Thinker if he just happened to have a spare Tesla coil. The result is - literally - electrifying!

Peter's protected from the several hundreds of thousands of volts of electricity by wearing a layer of foil and a mask made of fine strands of stainless steel, so don't try this at home!

I wonder why people focus on the voltage without mentioning the available current. Voltage is only the potenial. The voltage and resistance determine the current, measured in amperes.

I seem to get this error whenever I try to view a permalink/comments section (using IE8):

(it also blocks me from viewing the page unless I click 'diagnose connection problem', then the page loads and the built in diagnostic says there's no problem') I don't know if this is just me or IE8 or a neatorama thing, but I've only gotten this on neatorama, but only since 'upgrading' to IE8. :(
