Dex, Steve & all-
Dex's comment about a big toroid reminds me of another of my
conjectures: Suppose you took a large metal sphere e.g. a big "gazing
ball" and set it atop the toroid--the ball exhibiting a significantly
larger minimum-radius than the toroid. Before breakout from the toroid
occurred, the ball would store a considerable amount of additional
charge, which would then flow into the spark at breakout. Would that
serve to extend the spark-length?
