    Do not do this? This is coming from a person who nows what circuits are and the proper way to build them and this is not how you build one

    Did the phrase "Do Not Short Circuit. Do Not Disassemble. Do Not Dispose Of In Fire" not catch your attention?

    Although PP3 batteries are quite wimpy, shorting them out will make them angry, and the cells inside *will* go pop with sufficient force to blow out the plastic end cap. If you want that in your hand, along with caustic goo, then try this. Otherwise, don't.
