shorting the capacitor will make it drain the capacitor. You want 2 wires coming from the capacitor, 1 + 1 -, seriously though, dont use these. They're different than joke shockers. Joke shockers use thousands of volts at MINISCULE amperage. Camera flashes offer 350 volts at full amps (for a millisecond). It can vapourise skin. They aren't a prank, they are a weapon.
