Actual accupuncture by a truly trained accupuncturist. Good stuff.

Care to elaborate as to why?

Bwahahahahah!! He generates electricity through his own body!! I'm thinking he doesn't know the actual biological process of how electric eels zap people either. LOL. Lighting the newspaper trick!!

Of course. All that machinery interferes with Real Chi.

Probably won't even need machinery. Just protocols to disallow any magician's tricks."Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities." – Voltaire.

Protocols stop the flow of Real Chi.

The electric eel (which, by the way, is not a true eel but a Cypriniform
fish) can produce an electric discharge on the order of 600 - 650 volts.
In order to do this, there must be numerous excitable cells set in series
with one another. For example, if there are somewhere around 4500 of these
excitable cells sitting in series (and thus summating the voltage), and
each cell produces 140 millivolts, you would arrive at around 630 total
volts of discharge. The individual cells of the electric organ are
designed such that only one side of the cell carries the electric
potential, and all of the cells are aligned similarly. Thus the charge is
carried in one direction from the body. The head then acts as the
positive end of the 'battery', and the tail as the negative. When the eel
is resting there is no electricity generated from the organ, but when it
begins to move it emits electrical impulses. In some electric fishes, this
electric current is used for communication and/or recognizing prey items.
In the electric eel, when the eel touches its tail and head to an animal,
it sends electric shocks through that animals body, much the same way, you
can shock someone with static electricity and not get shocked yourself.

So without a specific organ to generate electricity, we can't? Brilliant.
You'd have thought that if we DID have the ability to do crazy **** like that, it would have been discovered in our ~10,000 year existance.
