With more than 700v across some places, I'd be careful.

Apart from that, looks like an almost reasonable circuit design.

The "to center of the sun" part may be a little tricky, I'll have a mess-around with some worm-holes and get that bit sorted for you.

The ground into a beaker of holy water blew me away.

I know what the moral rectifier does but what is the vibrator for?

EDIT: Never mind, my wife just told me.

I'm going to copy the "touch tongue here" subcircuit and put these connections on my tube amp circuits. I wonder how much the designer charges for the arduino code...

Crap, I just noticed they didn't specify the electric eel voltage. Not sure which species to use. Maybe the neck strap has a rating that will provide a clue.

Hmmmmmmm........... I spy a container of "Magic Smoke" AND a light bulb load. I suspect that this designer has been around some of "Papa's" Zen Amps - and with a huge solder blob in there I have narrowed the list down to only a few suspects. Anyone seen ZM around lately?

Yeah, but only if you attach special rocks to the beetles, and dissolve some into the water.

... Then add some quantum purifiers to keep the electric eel happy.

There was an electronics magazine in the 60's that ran a column called noteworthy circuits. It was either Popular Electronics or Radio Electronics. Every April issue contained a version called notworthy circuits. The diagrams resembled this sketch. Since transistors were not too popular with home builders yet most were tube circuits. The one that I remember contained things like the grid leak (a dripping water faucet) the plate load (a dinner plate) the dog bone resistor, the heater, and other oddball items with names similar to actual circuit components. I guess nobody saved this old stuff.
