  • please don't be done in by your own creation one day...

  • are u soting it

  • This cool and insane

  • how can you create 500kv with just some capacitors,resistors and a power supply but powerplants need giant transformers and millions of dollars to generate 100kv.

  • Causing 500,000 mini heart attacks using Marx Generator

  • he is still alive and defying all odds

  • Do you know who is "Max Damage"? No? Well... Face from the miniature is it!

  • same reaction as dr frankenstein 11:15

  • What is the purpose of the resistor in that circuit? Is it to slow down the capacitor charging?

  • تصدق اني مره اتكهربت ولله سعتها ما قربت من ام الكهربا 😂😂😂 مره امي قالتلي ان العب بلكهربا غلط ههههههه😂

  • I wonder how this man still alive until now :v

  • this guy is electron addict

  • Wow Marx generator is like Electrical Fire Crackers😂😂

  • somehow I think it will make a great electric fence around your yard, just add some amps "and they'll never let go"

  • I taught u got Heart Attack 😂😂

  • pmsl @ 6:20!!!! so funny!!

  • You created a gun that shoots an electrical bolt. Roll a d20 see if you hit then at d8+ electrical modifier for damage.

  • What would happen when putting HV in the house outlet?

  • 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣👌

  • very nice im new followers .i like that DIY or experement. please help my new channel😊

  • Wait a sec. HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM Corona discharge???

  • Came for the comments, stayed for the video

  • He said fuck and shit

  • Nice analog synth there

  • 0:56 with 0.25 ....

  • so much brain use

  • Hey man use some safety measures even use a rubber gloves

  • I know you are knowable in what you do. ANy idiot trying to get laughs with this would be done before anyone ever knew their name........but damnit i cant take you seriously! LOLOLOL

  • I love watching His videos even if I'm too stupid to understand

  • He's such an incredibly intelligent individual doing equally dangerous projects..

  • Possibly a deadly electric discharge Electroboom: It's for me?🥺

  • haha

  • This is how Arab teachers explain physics

  • I built one of these when I was 14. I was also plugging automotive ignition coils into 240v outlets in order to build hi voltage power supplies and took it to school. Thinking back I'm lucky I didn't get fried, What the fuck were my parents thinking.

  • Soviets anthim?

  • corona what?

  • Next video: I built the worlds largest taser that triggers by carefully rubbing it down with a screwdriver.

  • I know how to chrona discharge from my mouth

  • Прикольный электро дядька)))

  • 2:01 It sounds like a ticking time bomb..... *And ngl if feels like one as well*

  • Isn't the Corona discharged already???

  • 😂😁👍👍

  • Its called marx generator because its communist

  • Guys when he turn on generator arcs starts jumping in tesla coil. Did you see that?

  • So, considering an arc can piggy back on a flame... If one was to have a torch with a very long flame, like for blowing glass, and it was fixed with a high power tesla coil, or powerful HV generator, could this person ( not me) create an electrical sword of fire? I have a few little electrical discoveries that I would love to see you experiment with. But I've had this idea of an electrified sword of fire since I was a child. Even if an insulated core through the center of the flame is required to avoid charge dissipation at the base of the flame. I don't have the materials and I'd love to see someone shock and burn the shit out of themselves on a project I'd gladly endure the pain to a accomplish if I had the available hardware. You're more equipped for the job... Can it be done? I think so🤔

  • is vor me?

  • You never disappoint. Always laugh out loud funny, and very educational. Please figure out how to upload you consciousness online. The world would be a better place with more of you. 🙃

  • I got reminded about this guy in the,"I'm gonna break my monitor, I swear" video

  • i thought it's gonna be the famine generator

  • balgeet smoked crack

  • I WANT LARGER VOLTAGE!!!, But i wont get killed Mehdi -2020

  • Karl Marx approves of it! Mao se tung is proud of you Comrade! Hail Bidan!

  • This guy is what I imagined PrinceVidz to looked like

  • Funny as always

  • 1:25

  • Whats the input voltage for that generator?

  • 0:50 A little further on the speed of him when he jumped back so fast

  • This is why I love physics

  • 10:57 11:12 INTRODUCING NEW 2021 MEME

  • You know you can make way bigger arcs with a MOT and two hv capacitors, right?

  • unbelievable this guy is still alive. if he walks through a park at night the lights won't turn off they will light up like the sun. at this point i am pretty sure that he became the flash.

  • Waaaaooooooooooo... Very Good Very Beauty Very Dangerous... 😟😟😟😟😰😰😰🤪🤪🤪🤪🤪👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍

  • EEclone is probably going to censor this video with its new streak of censorship

  • Corona discharge nice so it’s capacitor 19 also known as capacitor virus

  • Would submerge the circuit in oil (leaving the Spark gaps out) help preventing the arcs across the resistors? Or maybe put It into an open box and cast some insulating resin? Maybe it would work better than painting polyutethane

  • There should be something called Mehdi generator

  • And when you're not careful, it will turn you into a Communist. When Karl starts to work on your generator!

  • watching this I was really hoping he wasn't going to mess about with it once it was built.

  • Awesome

  • his poor (well rich) wife

  • yo WHAT kind of discharge? 👀

  • 6:27 That's it, that is all you need.

  • Mantap

  • Where are yoy from??

  • This man is Zeus reincarnated

  • Corona Discharge?

  • I remember *G U N S*

  • You can keep electric tape around resistor legs and exposed metals.

  • 0:57 best shock reaction ever

  • What a scam. I built this and Karl Marx is still dead.

  • Marx, smells like communism in here.

  • Little do we know this guy is giving us hints of how to beat his giant robot he is making

  • Jumpscare

  • i love this kind of videos :D:D thumbs uppppp!!!!!

  • If your studying Electrical enginnering and studying for an exam and reading this your getting sidetracked go back. Idk man do what you want

  • this channel should be called: paying millions on electricity by doing crazy and cool experiments while extremely shocking myself.

  • I think you could use blown fuse (or just without the filament) as a spark gap

  • am i the only one who understands "corona discharge"

  • When you dont have fire work...

  • why does this man not just wear leather shoes?

  • Thank you for the video, peru 👍👍👍

  • 0:57

  • Maybe try covering them in epoxy to get bigger arcs?

  • Can't you put the resistors and capacitors in an oil bath and only leave the spark gaps free for higher voltage input?

  • 8:48 reminds me of Insidious

  • Khapasitaurs

  • 2:06

  • the great way of learning and Laughing

  • Use your layden jar. Thats high voltage right?

  • i heard a giant boom back here in holland
