Its Electric!!


Out of focus, badly framed, wrongly exposed, dimly lit and worthless photo?
Well, click on the image and check it out the in high resolution.

This image captures the ESD (Electro Static Discharge) phenomenon. You can notice a spark between the chair and the plate I am holding. The best part is, you can see its reflection on the dining table.

How does it feel to get static-electrocuted?
The spark we see is caused by electric charge accumulation of 20kv/cm. When all this charge discharges through your body, it gives a shock which runs from the hand right back into the brain. First few times, you jump and scream. Then you get used to it and start enjoying it :)

Here is another pic. But it is not as artistic as the previous one

Note to self: Saaku.
