The tittle itself is wrong. Nobody understand electricity. We can only describe it, Even Einstein did not understand electricity so Neither Neils Bohr. Finally electricity is beyond logic

There is no evidence whatsoever that Franklin ever performed the "kite" experiment! it's a complete myth!!!! Faraday is the man who left Franklin eating dirt!!!

The only reason Nikola Tesla gets so little recognition is because he didn't care about dollar signs like Ben Franklin did

At the beginning I thought it was okay not mentioning Nikola Tesla... since I know of him not by eleon mask ( or whatever) then I realized that it's unfair.
This is too light on electricity, I guess that why no mention of Tesla?

Saying voltage will not kill you is ridiculous. Without the high voltage there in the first place to push the amperage through my body then amps are harmless . Wtf !!?? Simple ohms law 🧐

Not a mention of Nikola Tesla ? It's a shame we applaud business men who thrive off the success of others while banishing the true hero's of our day. You should be ashamed of yourself.

Yes they did not mention Tesla, its an older documentary, most of them didnt, chill and learn what you can. Tesla didnt invent electricity even though he made electronics inventions, this is about electricity. PS: Tesla talked to Pigeons...WITH HIS MIND!!!!!!!!!! look it up

.If voltage determines the level of pressure, so it must have affect on the amount of amps as much as I understand it the two units are sort of intertwined.

Ben Franklin was a con artist, he didn't invent anything his many members of staff did but his name was on the patent application, he owned the company and as far as he saw it he was in charge, he was paying for it.

That satellite generation plan is just stupid. At the end of the day, all you are doing is converting the spacecraft's momentum into electricity. Where did that kinetic energy come from in the first place? Isn't that from the rocket propellant? You might as well be bringing extra fuel for your fuel cell battery for the trouble deploying that.

They got TV! That is such a terrible thing to do to those people. They have no idea that brainwashing has begun!

You can bet that the people that live without electric are twice as healthy as us electric living people. And EMW are killing you! That is 5G cell towers and the modem in your house and any cordless device.

Too much baloney and theatrics. I'm halfway thru and I haven't learned shit. And I don't think her number on how man electrons go thru a filament per second is correct. And to say that voltage is not what kills you is ridiculous. And what's all that Arabian writing doing down near the bottom? What a mess. And didn't Nikola Tesla invent the electron? I think they should throw him a bone somewhere here.

how come they fail to make the public understand how we've been suckered by criminal banker morgan and his gang of perverts after their piracy of both Westinghouses and Edisons companies to subvert and perverts all of Teslas electrical ideas of bring light and progress to the world into a sickening money grab and suppress any further developments so they could continually reap huge profits and solidify their physical and financial control over the people.

Apparently Nikola Tesla single handedly developed electricity when he sold polyphase patents to Westinghouse, and some sort of great wrong has taken place by not mentioning that in this video. For the record Tesla did not invent AC or high voltage lines, or transformers, his big contribution was in electric motors.
Dominic 2 years ago
What the fuck does Tesla have to do with a docu about UNDERSTANDING electricity? You idiots need to read a fucking book to understand the role of Tesla, guess what? The bullshit you read in a reddit circlejerk are not actual facts.

I read the comments first and stopped watching it 2 minutes in, since Nikola Tesla wasn't mentioned and gave the 665 thumbs down...I apologize to the next person, but it is beyond my control.

Yes, Benjamin Franklin, among many things he was a diplomate and a Satanist!?Noooooooo!? .......................... When he stayed in England, a place he used to stay became later quite famous because he lived there, or visited that club frequently. ............................ They decided to restore the building and took down some walls. They found a dozens of babies and young children locked up in the walls, all of them had marks telling the tragic story of child sacrifices! ........................... AND WHAT DID THE AUTORITIES DO!? RIGHT, SPOT ON!!!!!!!!!!!! SOS SOS SOS SOS SOS SOS SOS

"4 billion kilowatts a year"! More balls. Maybe 4 billion kilowatt HOURS per year. This is high school physics. Maybe JHS. Enough. Visuals good content dubious like most stuff from American producers.

VOLTS do NOT FLOW! "50,000 volts "through me" is wrong. 50,000v "ACROSS" me or BETWEEN my toe and thumb is correct. AMPS flow. Current flows. I'm really surprised that with the research and advice this program had that such a basic error should be transmitted.

This video is bullshit. It starts out by saying Everybody needs to obey the law's of physics. That's a lie. September 11 2001 physics was rewritten. Ask anyone of the criminal's on the N.I.S.T. investigation panel.
