This is the same mechanism that keeps you safe inside a car during a thunderstorm (the bit about the rubber tires being the protective factor is a myth – it’s the metal body of the car acting as a Faraday Cage that protects you).

A Faraday Cage


Author: Stink

Former jet-fighter jock, currently an eccentric philanthropist and international playboy, Stinkfinger is devoted to juxtaposing the sacred and the profane to both baffle and entertain you, and possibly to save Western civilization from utter dissolution. Stinkfinger neither engages in nor understands the practice of “felching.”

  1. Gentlemen: I am professor emeritus of the university of Tokyo. I am now writing a biography of Michael Faraday for a journal named KAGAKU (chemistry) for Japanese university students and high school science teachers.
    Your photo of Faraday cage is the best one as far as I can search in Google. I should be most grateful if you admit me using this photo in the appropriate place in the journal. I certainly acknowledge your kindness in the article. Please let me know how I should write your name and address if the permission is given. Sincerely yours, Yoshito Takeuchi
