DIY Electricity

I've decided to get off the grid and generate my own hydroelectric power. I think I've almost got it!

This water defies gravity, it comes out the top outlet only...

That's because Sprucey is a technical genius.

Well clearly there is a bad connection in the lower outlet.

It's supposed to flow top to bottom, that's how the elekumtrickity is generated.

I thought about it all day, and I think I get it, get it, got it!!!

The reason why the elekumtrickity flows out from the top and not the bottom is because you cut the silver and brass tabs that connect between the bottom and the top, right spruce ? ;):D:confused:

But you have to do that to prevent a feedback loop.

Obviously, the water is under pressure, making it rise to the top outlet.
