Discharging is not the idea. If all is well it will NEVER discharge
anything. A nail with a good hooked ground strap in a broom handle is
perfect. This is to keep you from making a sudden trip to the hereafter
only. If it should ever actually be called on to work you will normally
holler out the name of the Christian Savior in a loud voice! This is why
folks in the business call them "Jesus Sticks!"
