    Dare I ask, what's the risk of an individual cell exploding in an experiment like this?

    I'm all for experimenting, and drinking, and experimenting and drinking. But dudes, seriously, no eye protection?

    Gee, and people wonder why Tesla doesn't want people messing around with spare batteries.

    Nothing good ever followed the following statement: "Hold my beer and watch this..."

    Maybe it's just me, but my take away was enjoyment that I was riding on top of something so beautiful.

    Yes, I've never seen the battery before and I didn't realize it was that beautiful.

    Obviously, the fontanelles have yet to fuse:)

    My wife often refers to me as her 4th kid, says my brain
    is stuck in childhood, only my toys (MS included) have
    become bigger.

    The difference between men and boys is the cost of their toys

    You are SO LUCKY that you didn't start a chain reaction lithium explosion. Fortunately. Speaks to the quality of the Tesla design.

    I also love experimenting and drinking on occasion. But have learned to only do it when I am pretty damn sure I won't kill myself!

    My number one rule is that I do not operate any power tools, except a drill driver, if I have had even only one beer. Almost took my index finger off with an 18V Makita skill saw, no drinking at all. Gave me a renewed respect for how dangerous my woodshop can be. And I thought I already knew that. That's when I set the rule. If I can do that stone cold sober, I am sure I could something really stupid after a beer.

    LOL I'm pretty sure they were well aware of the bond wire fuses.
