You know that game everyones played where you have to move a metal hoop along a bendy bit of wire without touching the wire and if you do it makes a buzz - How about a tight metal maze through which you have to navigate - having first charged yourself up on a Van de Graaf (Static Generator).

The rules are as follows:

1) Object : To get from one end to the other without making a sound (the discharge should be of sufficient strength to cause the player to scream).

2) Once you start you must keep trying untill you complete it.

3) 1st attempt requires a 1 min charge, 2nd 2mins, 3rd 3mins etc.

4) If you should be rendered unconscious - each player is entitled to slap you in turn untill you wake.

5) Someone with long hair must participate : see : http://www.amasci.com/emotor/bill3.jpg

       When I was a kid, they kinda Baked this at the local public library - nylon carpets, metal book racks. No van der Graaf generators, but the sparks flew if you didn't keep well back from the railings, the shelves and other people.

       I was liking this up until the 'enough voltage to make you scream' bit. Howabout a joy-buzzer type technology that simply vibrates?

       That would be no fun - where's the risk?

       [Hunter] are you the man in the photo?

       (1) Charge Van de Graaf   

       (2) Connect hairspray can to the negative terminal at the base   

       (3) Connect bloke to Van de Graaf   

       (4) Spray hairspray on hair; oppositely-charged nature of hair and spray particles will economise on both hairspray and CFCs   

       Best before a big date
