The One Joule Experience

Who brings an electric fence to burning man? Why, The Phage, of course. Who finds a way to make it into a hilarious educational-ish experience? One and the same.


A joule is a unit of energy equal to lifting an object weighing approximately one kilogram one meter straight up. Volunteers first hefted a bottle of water about three feet to the mark on a piece of rebar, expending one joule of energy. That energy was then graciously (and shockingly) given back after they kneeled on an electric fence. Brilliant.
