Did you know that by attaching a 9-volt battery to your scalp — with the help of some electrodes and some wet sponges (or conducting gel) — you can more than double your brain’s learning rate and boost peak performance?

So who's going to mill the LN2 pot that fits the human skull so we can push 12V+?

Be sure to pre-tin everything (even soldered stuff!) with leaded solder. None of the RoHS junk. You want good old fashioned toxic heavy metals. ~ Bobnova

There's the beasty in charge of current control in theory. That schematic is oversimplified and likely doesn't work though.

I know many different ways to "overclock" ones self, but somehow sticking a battery to your head doesn't seem like one of them.

There's a 230kV transmission line not far from my house right next to a lake. I have the volts, I have the cooling. Think I have a WR brain in the making. Can't find the category on HWBot though.
