David Blaine Live Now Thread - Electrified By One Million Volts
David Blaine 'electrified' by one million volts in New York
With a reported one million volts of electricity flowing around him, magician David Blaine gets his new stunt "Electrified" under way in front of a large crowd in New York City.

Live YouTube Link = [link to www.youtube.com]

The magician was elevated to a platform above a high-voltage Tesla coil, dressed in a chain-mail suit weighing over a stone, and proceeded to shoot arcs of lightning out of his hands in unison with music.

Blaine will stand on the 20-foot-high platform for 73 hours without food amid an artificial lightning storm crackling between low-current, million-volt Tesla coils.

Cool, thanks, but in the article your provided to back up your claims "that volts do not kill you, amperage does," the article clearly states that Volts can kill you as well as amperage.

ARTICLE:


How many times have your heard that it's not the volts that'll kill you, but the amps? While mostly true (it takes only 100mA to stop your heart), amps and volts are eternally bound together by Ohm's Law:

V = IR

In plain English: volts (V) equals current (I) times resistance (R). So, assuming resistance is constant, voltage and current are in lockstep. As one goes up, so does the other, and vice versa. You can't have a lot of amps without a lot of volts.

So, back to which kills you, the amps or volts. Given your body is a constant resistance, it really is a combination of both. Higher voltage means higher amperage, and thus higher voltage has more potential to kill. It takes only 100mA to stop your heart. I believe the resistance of a person with dry skin is somewhere around 100,000 ohms. This means, even touching 120V is far from lethal. The probem is wet skin is around 1,000 ohms, and the inside of your body is even lower, thus making 120V potentially lethal. OSHA actually has a good page describing this (even if they resize your damn browser window). And here's another explanation of the biological effects of electric shock.

You also, of course, have to take the power supply into account. All power supplies, especially batteries, are far from ideal. As they supply current, the voltage drops. A standard 1.5V AA battery cannot source 1A for any sustained period of time (if at all), for example. That's what makes a 12V car battery a lot more powerful, than, say, 8 AA batteries. I sincerely doubt you could start your car with a pack of Duracells.

BTW, even a standard 9V battery can kill you. Don't believe me? It's happened in the Navy. And I've seen that story before, so I think it is actually true.

I also think that many people are injured or killed, not necessarily from direct contact with an electric shock, but the aftershock. For example, a television tube usually runs at somewhere around 20,000 volts. But, it doesn't have a lot of current capability. The voltage drops off quickly as it discharges (i.e. you touch it). So, even though the shock is not lethal, the involuntary muscle contractions can cause you to touch something else more dangerous. Perhaps something inside the TV (like the power supply), or maybe it'll through you off your chair and into something sharp in your workspace. Either way, the potential for injury is still significant.

Anyhow, that ends my rant on weather amps or volts will kill you. The truth of the matter is they are both dangerous in the right quantities and situation. So be careful around electricity!

He is not comfortable, it is obvious with two days to go lol

it's also probably high frequency that causes the current to all be on the outer skin, which in this case is the chain mail suit

NEW YORK — Magician David Blaine's latest stunt boasts lots of high-voltage snap, crackle and pop — but experts say he'll be safe from electrocution as long as he wears his chain-mail suit and metal headgear.


---

Blaine's stainless-steel chain-mail suit is a Faraday suit, an adaptation of the principle of the Faraday cage, in which an enclosure of highly conductive material shields whatever is within the enclosure from an electric field. It's a version of the protective suit that some linemen wear when working on high-voltage power lines, or that hobbyists make for themselves when playing with homemade Tesla coils.

"He has a conducting suit, all the current is going through the suit, nothing through his body," John Belcher, a physicist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, told Life's Little Mysteries . "There is no danger in this that I see. I would do it, and I am 69 years old and risk-averse. I just would have to take a nap."

I believe they call it the skin effect, at high frequency the electricity travels along the surface of the object being hit by it.
Tesla himself used to use the effect for demonstrations in the lab in New York when he was trying to inspire people to invest in his technology.
It looks impressive, but it is no real feat to withstand it.
What would be impressive would be to see the low frequency effects of resonance withstood for just an hour without stopping to go to the bathroom.
To get an understanding of the genius of Tesla I recommend reading man out of time.

This is the type of noise and electrical pollution that we are under daily as humans living in the year 2012. We just do not have a suit or stand for 72 hours at a time. But belive me, if we could see this pollution and attacks with the naked eye, it would be akin to what we see here with Blaine and his suit.
