what if a butterfly in japan flaps its wings and a bolt of lightning from
a thunderstorm
strikes  my metal shop building sending unknown amounts of energy into my
wiring and causes an arc to jump from the end of my extension cord to the
body of my nst to the connector bolt on my capacitor thus causing an arc
in the oil.
