This guy calling himself “The Backyard Scientist” recently fed 20,000 volts of electricity into a watermelon. Why? We’re not 100-percent sure, but it certainly is cool to see.
We suspect he’s trying to show us how powerful electricity is. For example, he claims about a fourth of that voltage would probably stop your heart. So why not run all that power into a watermelon?
Skip to about 2:30 if you want to see the fruit carnage (followed by some other household items and a neighbor calling the cops!). However, the first, couple minutes are pretty fascinating and worth your time.
