Most of the things you describe here are fairly easy to control. Electricity, on the other hand, is a completely different matter. You can't control electricity. It does what it wants, which is take the path of least resistance. If you become a part of that path (which is easy to do accidentally), then you will get a shock, and with 110vdc 9A, you will probably die from it. You also can't easily control the heating of the magnet once it has started, and if it is between you and the outlet, you could have a problem.Dangerous? Lots of things are dangerous. Anyone drive a car? Take medicine? Go to the hospital? Have sharp instruments around the house like a knife?
You're free to disagree with me. I have no problem with that. I am simply concerned for the safety and well-being of the OP.QUOTE - "You can't control electricity."
You can control electricity! That is what this forum is all about.
If you couldn't control it there would be no TV, Radio, iPod, Computer, electricity delivered to your house etc.
QUOTE - I'm not saying "it's dangerous, so make sure you're careful". I'm saying "it's (IT IS) dangerous, so you shouldn't do it".
Ok! those things I mentioned as dangerous we shouldn't do??? Because they are controllable and electricity is NOT??? Sorry just can't follow your reasoning.
I got started in 'electricity' sticking a knife in a wall outlet, and I've been in unpleasant contact with 800Vdc on the plate of the final power amplifier of a ham transmitter. Would I undo those because they were dangerous? NO! Absolutely Not! I learned more from those experiences than if I'd read it in a book! But neither did I have my children do them because I had done it. I certainly new better than that. Danger is NOT to be avoided. Rather experienced with understanding and caution being aware of the risk vs reward. And yes there is possible reward in doing something that is dangerous. Where would we be today if our predecessors had avoided all danger? Some stupidly go into danger - many or most respect and engage in danger and I believe the world is better for it. And some give their lives in danger so that we might live better lives in peace.
Sorry DER I just simply disagree with you on this!
