Electric effects on vegetable oil

Beyond the boundaries of established science an avalanche of exotic ideas compete for our attention. Experts tell us that these ideas should not be permitted to take up the time of working scientists, and for the most part they are surely correct. But what about the gems in the rubble pile? By what ground-rules might we bring extraordinary new possibilities to light?

Electric effects on vegetable oil

This covers a number of topics discussed on this board, Moderators please feel free to move this thread if you feel it should be somewhere else on the board.

I discovered this account on Youtube - Kreosan - wher the guy plays around with electricity in various, unadvisable, ways.

His latest upload really caught my attention - Oil Under High Voltage! where he plays around with the effects of electricity on cups and bowls of vegetable oil.

The spilled oil also seems to want to climb back up the sides and into the container

He also produces an electric wind:

In addition to dune and rille formations he produces waves in his bowl of oil. At one point he places his electrode under the oil which then discharges at the bottom of the bowl producing a small tsunami

A very interesting little video, well worth a look.
