26. Something you might look up is "Vector Inversion Generator" and similar technologies.

Once you figure out how to generate a pulse measured in nanoseconds, gigawatt pulses from car batteries become quite a bit easier.

Basically what you are doing is compressing a high voltage high current pulse in time, somewhat analogous to the way big waves are generated on some shorelines...

I was always a danger to myself and others when I surfed, even when I was merely body surfing. I once broke some guy's arm with my head. I have a brother who is a similar danger to himself and others surfing. His wife just said "NO." I think it's in their unspoken and unwritten marriage contract that he not surf. Yet his kids are horse whisperers, something I think is just as dangerous. I've met mean horses.

My youngest brother and my wife are our family's only accomplished surfers. But as middle age parents with kids we mostly avoid danger and try to model proper adult behavior to the young ones.

My major vices as a young adult were very high voltages and explosives.
