Although It is a setup, sometimes he genuinely accidentally hurts himself. He has many similar videos in his channel.That has be a setup. Nobody is THAT stupid that many times. Most learn once bitten not to do the same thing over and over again. I watched the first few minutes and saw every stupid mistake repeated many times. I do remember getting shocked when I was starting out, but soon learned how to limit that experience by being very careful and not doing stupid things around HV circuits when live or around charged caps either. Smoked very few components. Remember smoking a selenium rectifier once and the smell was horrible. They are also toxic.
No, I likely said "UHG" and just held on. Funny thing is CRTs hold this charge and even after you discharge one the charge can build up again at a lower potential, so you need to discharge it again if you are going to lift it later.
They’re a good distraction when I am working on a difficult problem and want a little break from overthinking it.
