I'm going to assume Clint was referring to rigor mortis <G> ... yes it is a
VERY healthy (for the ignition system) spark and a very UNHEALTHY circuit
for the human body to complete. Can you believe when I was a pre-teen, I
used to take one of these transformers out in the back yard, poke the
electrodes in the ground about 2 yards apart, and gather earthworms for
fishing? Looking back at some of the stunts I pulled, I wonder how I made it
