Build Your Own Van De Graaff Generator

I know, I know, I've already posted one of these.  Sorry, but this one's cooler than the last, so I had to put it up.  This also has a great in-depth tutorial that shows exactly what to do and why you do it.  There are photos for every step of the process, so you can actually make this one without too much head scratching.

A dome more than a foot can give a decent jolt, but will adding the leyden jar really up the shock by 50 percent? I suppose it would. Never seen one with a leyden jar. Seems like a cool project to try out, easy enough. Can't wait to see how long the current lasts before dissipating.
