He neglected to mention the fun that can be had by inserting a number  
of those 10uf tantalum caps into a switch-controlled wall outlet.  (I  
entered the comment on the youtube video).  Years ago in my high  
school electronics lab, someone did this.  When the teacher came into  
the lab, and flipped on the lights, explosions occurred from all sides  
of the room! :-)
