  This handy little circuit is the key to generating THOUSANDS of volts of
electricity for warding off attackers (notice the plural).  It generates it all
from a hefty 6-volt source and is easily fit into a tubular casing.  Originally
used as a fence charger, this circuit can be put to other uses such as:
charging a whole row of lockers at school, a row of theater seats, or a metal
bleacher set in the gym.  More on this later.

  To build this, all you need is a GE-3 transistor, a 6.3-volt transformer, and
a handful of spare parts from old radios.  The ammount of shock you wish to
generate is determined by the setting of potentiometer R1, a 15,000 ohm
variable resistor.  Hint:  for maximum shock, set R1 at maximum!
