    Here is what happens when you add household current!

    Aren't those usually referred to "D" cells opposed to something else being called the other?

    Did you want to electrocute the pickle? You should try that with household current and you will see it glow!

    Aren't we starting with April-1st pranks a little early? LOL! The pickle, would generate it's own electricity, if a steel nail was used on the opposite side of the 1st copper nail. Though, not anything strong enough to drive anything but a volt meter.. (say .5V or so..) Now.. for a real electric pickle, I've seen the picke alone, on 2 nails (copper or steel), with 110V-AC attached to the nails.. (carefully!!! but it will actually light up the pickle from inside.)
