Aww shit, someone killed a nightfinder again.
Edit: Sorry, didn't notice this was old.
Maybe we should have a warning like NHQ does so noobs (like me) will necro topics less.

in this way everyone in the room is flashed.


added that hilarious quote to my signature, while playing with my butthole :P

The almighty eye-damager may be fun, but you've got to be careful. I've had high-powered flashlights, laser pointers, spotlights and camera flashes shone in my eyes and I was blinded for a short time. While it's useful for night wars, I'd suggest using actual blasters and flashlights more often so you don't damage people's eyes.

EDIT: Oops, didn't notice the necro.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. A good nerf gun is like a good woman. It shouldn't require extra lubrication.

^ He isn't kidding.

You can actually be killed by the charge stored in a camera capacitor.


I would take care as to isolate the capacitors well.


I didn't think a flash bulb used that much current at that much voltage. While the voltage is sufficient to do damage, I sincerely doubt that at 2500V, the amperage is high enough to do any damage at all.

The electrical resistance in the human body is several million ohms (measured it in my Digital Electronics lab in high school). So lets take 3,000,000 ohms*.015 amperes (fatal amount across the heart). You would need 45k volts to kill. That doesn't mean it won't hurt like a bitch though.

Edited because I type too fast and can't notice small spelling errors.

You also assume, that all people are the same average.


Trust me. I had a professor get thrown 20 feet back into a chalkboard, caused by a shock from a disposable camera capacitor.

Capacitors are not things to be taken lightly.

If your prof was thrown across the room, 8 times out of ten it was arc-flash. Electric field strong enough to throw a person across a room would probably pull screws out of every computer in the building. I say this because human beings don't have a very strong magnetic field. However, if the magnets are strong enough, any piece of matter can be affected. But a rapid flow of current can vaporize metal, and the concussive force from that can be lethal.

I am not saying that a capacitor discharge can't be deadly as an electric shock. I just don't see the magnetic field associated with the electric field in a camera capacitor being capable of throwing a screw a few inches, let alone a person across the room.

You can also turn a disposible camera in to a tazzer! I don't know how legal that would be, just something to think about though.
