No misunderstanding on your part... The geek group are not renowned for 
their technical competance, I suspect the 80kV rating was based on either 
severely flawed reasoning.  A more sensible DC rating for a longneck beer 
bottle (miller, corona, becks etc.) would be 40kV or so, depending on the 
condition of the glass and the creepage path down the neck.
