Maybe in the future we will see something akin to seizure warnings: "Warning: Artificial neural network generated content, may trigger schizophrenia"

The things they call "shooters" behave the exact same way as "feelers" do for lightning. I also cannot wrap my head around how that works, but in the case of the ballbearings, I'm like "that's not new, they're just taking a ride along with the electrons."

Cool, lightning made from ball bearings. Nothing really mysterious going on here, but it's nice to look at.
