        ROFL!  *POOF!*

      hehe, normally you wouldn't think anything would happen. But with the amount of power stored in that cap, the solder vaporizes quick enough to cause a shock wave - without any casing - it was loud as a firecracker. And everyone in the lab thought something blew up. That's all the solder I dare give him.
