For the record, i wouldnt try the popcorn thing - you might well kill
yourself. You might get people talking aobut the skin effent and how TCs
dont effect your nerves, but I would be *VERY* careful if you try this, and
even then only on a TINY coil. For your own safety, i wouldnt try it.
However if you put an aluminium pan on top of your TC and put oil and
popcorn seeds in it, the corona will cook then, and you can serve TC fried
popcorn to your audience... might try that one day.

Greg could sit inside his electrode because there is no electric field
inside a closed charged electrode so it is safe. There was positing a couple
of days ago in more detail... check the archives

Have fun but BE SAFE!!!!
