"If you jump into a black hole, your mass energy will be returned to our Universe, but in a mangled form, which contains information about what you were like, but in an unrecognizable state. It is like burning an encyclopedia. Information is not lost, if one keeps the smoke and the ashes. But it is difficult to read."

Actually a lot more to get a spark to jump the gap - just about 75,000 volts per inch (3000 volts per milimeter).  You can sustain an arc with less once you have ionized the air in the gap, but it takes a bunch to get it going.

I always fill my kettle with cold water because i read there's critters in the warm water pipes.
