In July 1820, Danish scientist Hans Christian Oersted published a groundbreaking pamphlet on the relationship between electric current and magnetic fields, effectively kicking off our modern electric age. You may think about electromagnetism every July when you look at your power bill and see how it spikes when your air conditioner is on. In honor of everyone getting zapped by the electric company this month, we've asked Jeopardy! 's Ken Jennings to set us straight on some high-voltage misconceptions about electricity, correcting all of our shocking ignorance. He knows "watts" up. He keeps current. The Debunker: Are Power Lines Insulated? Lightning kills as many as 24,000 people every year, and injures ten times as many. It's a real safety issue, not one of these overhyped 11-o'clock-news dangers, like shark attacks. When you've got bolts of electricity blazing out of the sky with a currents of 50,000 amps and temperatures up to 50,000 degrees, you don't want to fool around.

This song about soldiers at a brothel was certainly an odd subject, but it's delivered like a normal pop song. For 1968 it wasn't even sonically daring. But it's cool. Which is something Scott Walker was very good at being. The Walker Brothers - The Electrician It won't surprise anyone to learn that David Bowie was a Scott Walker fan (they even briefly dated the same woman) or that Bowie was openly floored by this song. Today it sounds current, of course, but what you're hearing is from 1978 . This was basically the end of The Walker Brothers, but it was also basically the start of the Scott Walker we now know and love. Scott Walker - Track Three This song doesn't even have a name . 1984 was the year when branding became more important than anything, and the Scott Walker comeback song didn't even have a name . At list point a lot of people talked about how scary Scott Walker was, and how the odd musical decisions made them feel nervous.

The Debunker: Are Power Lines Insulated? If you've ever watched birds sitting idly on power lines, footloose and electrocution-free, you might have inferred that the black coating on the outside of the wires is rubber or some other kind of insulating material.
