Re: High Voltage Stunt on Fear Factor tonight.

Original poster: Steve Ward <steve.ward@xxxxxxxxx>

I caught the last 10 minutes or so of the show (before they cursed
each other out), i didnt catch the introduction to the "stunt", but it
really looked faked to me.  It looked like they edited in little SSTC
or VTTC brush discharges to dramatize the whole thing.  I would not be
surprised if the metal parts were actually charged up, but the little
streamers that we see on TV do look completely fake (why would they
spray out into the air when a grounded human touches them?).  Please
correct me if im wrong.

Any comments on this Sam?
