I want to be a Franklin member, after the open source hero who made his lightning rod free to the public:

"As we enjoy great advantages from the inventions of others, we should be glad of an opportunity to serve others by any invention of ours; and this we should do freely and generously."
-Ben Franklin (from the Autobiography)

I want to be known as either a William Kemmler Member or possibly Alfred P. Southwick.

William Kemmler?  Alfred Southwick?

William Kemmler was the first person ever executed by electrocution.. Alfred Southwick (a dentist) invented the Electric Chair that was used..

I figure given my skill level and commitment to safety should combine to produce a similar outcome, eventually..
When the testing is complete there will be... cake.

After all we do what we enjoy, not necessarily making boat load of money or electrocuting cows so Tesla is a higher standard than Edison  :smiley-yell:

Not just cows.

FYI: The animal was going to be put down anyway because it trampled 3 (I think) people so Edison volunteered to do it to show electricity can kill.

focalist, if you overcome Ohm's law as you said, you're likely in some danger. I used to teach physics 2 in college and we had this lab to study Ohm's law on light bulb filaments. Only at high temperatures does Ohm's law break down. Resistance goes up for Tungston and down for carbon so to bread Ohm's law you need some sort of danger. :smiley-mr-green:
