February 2008

Steve demonstrated how to turn 120 volts of electricity from the wall outlet into 50,000 volts of static electricity. Ellen mixed two colorless liquids and nothing apparently happened - and then the liquid instantly turned black!  Steve put a bang into the show by safely igniting bubbles filled with hydrogen and oxygen in her hands. They ended the second segment with a member of the audience walking on a 250 gallon mixture of cornstarch and water (Cornstarch Water Walk).
