you could probably find some youtubes of Stelarc's performances -- I had a
friend who volunteered for a live performance with him -- he wired her up to a
'driver' box that he had made, and by sending jolts of electricity through her
muscles, had her 'dancing' -- afterwards she was in such pain for days that she
could barely move! When you send a current into the muscles, it causes a 100%
strength contraction of the muscle (where normally you use less than 50% of the
total muscle strength even with maximum exertion)... It will actually
internally shred the muscle tissues!
Dr. Frankenstein, I presume?
