When I was about ten, I connected some wires to the leads of some large capacitor then plugged them in the wall socket. Very nifty trick. But I am not very intelligent either.
similarly, at around 12-14 I would put a capacitor inside a pen tube, apply a short circuit, wait for it to heat and POP! (most times)

"spit balls" had nothing on that device :smile:

For the OP, there's this thread with some real classics. In short - yes, intelligent people can do dumb things.

And let's not forget one of the Tribdog classics.

Just a smaple of the stuff that's in the General discussion classics thread pinned to the top of the General Discussion section.
