 The energy will bleed off faster than you can apply it. The second problem 5 
 Kj isn't enough to shrink quarters. You have to be above 6 and preferable 7 
 Kj to get started.

Hey Paul,

You may be right about the 10 mA, but (2) 100 uFD, 10 kV capacitors
in parallel (200 uFD -at- 10 kV) is 10 kJ, not 5 kJ. (.5 CV*V = Joules)
