A little weather event that woke me up this morning with the corresponding weather radar. The hail was very loud on a tin roof. The lowest red spot of very high rainfall/high radar reflectivity on the map is exactly over us.
Some years back many thousands of cars in our capital city, Perth, were dented by once-in-a- century hail.

Tearing a phone book in half sounds pretty difficult but can be done with the right technique.

There's an episode of the old 50s Superman TV show where someone challenges Superman's powers, so he tears a phone book in half. Someone says, that's just a trick -- anyone can learn to do that! So Superman says, how about this? And he turns the two torn halves 90 degrees on top of each other and tears through them again.

The twin musical Tesla coils are in cages to reduce interference to electronics and increase safety.
One might expect sparks would be from the nearest point to the cage (ie about 8 inches = diameter of the steel sphere). However, sparks can't breakout from a smooth surface of this size unless there is a breakout point. By positioning one at the top of the sphere,  they preferentially go up the 20 inches or so to the ceiling. 
Now 20 inches is not huge but it is in proportion to the exclusion zone for the operator and equipment without the cage.
This is still loud and needs earmuffs if you are close. In actual use you would have powered speakers behind them to provide the backing music track that the sparks are played to.
I can sit between them so it becomes a compact installation that I can setup without help.
And the cages? Four dog cages that fold flat to the same dimension as one of the walls
Here the Tesla coils play the Imperial March:
