What I saw was on the science channel and this guy created a high voltage insulator that he sat on ran a series of wires around his body to his gloves that were a metallic mesh,then pumped an enormous amount of voltage to the insulator, minus the current.Don't think I could do this,and yes he caused a he!! of a light show out of his hands.

He is setting up a faraday cage around his body. Seen a few acts like this over the years, had one guy do a "show" at a conference I was at a few years back. Same stuff Tesla played with 100 years ago.

I guarantee you this is not real. I mean, he may be turning these things on, but not by directly passing line current through his body. He has a triac or transistor circuit in there somewhere.

I say this because the light bulbs light up at full brightness, no matter if the circuit is through his tongue, between his hands, or from his hand to foot. I say BS. If you want me to be impressed, let ME set up the wiring for him to stick on his tongue.

Seen him and a few similar acts over the years, I remember a Serbian guy who was in the Guinness book in the 80's for doing similar stuff.
