they can touch the walls, the current still takes the route of least resistance i.e. the wall and not the person within

But what about use a 'circuit' like situation where you put both your feet one far from each other, and the current runs through your body and out? (Like on the 1st Avatar to repel lightning tho they did it in a 4 points way which I think would be deadly) I was wondering if that was possible or not, not sure if platinum would affect it.

Does this work if the base of the box is made of metal aswell? because it is, otherwise she would've earth.bent the **** out of there.

What i don't understand is why amon didn't secure the Avatar himself. it is much more of an important job than securing Tarlok

the easiest answer is to just say, plot
but it could also be for the same reason he didn't take her into custody before when he had the chance, doesn't want her to be a martyr, if he were to take the avatar he'd get a **** load of attention from benders, which I'm assuming he doesn't want. But then again, why would he tell them to go after her in the first place =/, ******* plot.

Possibly it wasn't that important to him. Last time he let her go on purpose, because he felt taking her out too early would make her a martyr for the people to rally around. He could hardly have expected Tarrlok to capture her. His reason for going after Tarrlok was probably not to capture the Avatar himself, because Amon didn't make any attempt to capture her before that (and he probably could have if he wanted to - we've seen how powerful he is). I think he went after Tarrlok because a) Tarrlok could have prematurely made Korra into a martyr simply by framing the Equalists, which Amon didn't want, and/or b) to free Korra from Tarrlok, who was basically a loose cannon Amon could not account for in his plans.

A woman hangs from a piece of cloth when in a metal cage which wasn't really necessary is a realization that rustled your jimmies... yet creating/manipulating fire, water, metal, dirt, and air using only your hands makes perfect sense.

If you're like me and you didn't know what a Faraday Cage is, here you go:

A Faraday cage or Faraday shield is an enclosure formed by conducting material or by a mesh of such material. Such an enclosure blocks external static and non-static electric fields. A Faraday cage's operation depends on the fact that an external static electrical field will cause the electric charges within the cage's conducting material to redistribute themselves so as to cancel the field's effects in the cage's interior. This phenomenon is used, for example, to protect electronic equipment from lightning strikes and electrostatic discharges.

Just wondering if the fact that it's open at the top would do anything?
Anyway, Korra may not know that, and thus she did what she thought would work (it also aloud her to make them think she was down so she could buy some time to fire-kick them in the face--she didn't know when the cage would open exactly, so once it was open she would buy herself some time by playing dead and then when they lean in closer to make sure, she would surprise them and get the **** out of there.)

No...if you are inside a metal box the electric current just travels through the box and leaves you alone, because electricity takes the path of least resistance

yes but (i might be wrong) after the box it has to go either to the ground or to korra i think korra might be less resistant

Yeah the box has to be grounded somehow so the electricity can travel that way instead of into the person

For anybody who doesn't know how to its... basically because the metal box is a conductor, all of the charge stays on the outside of the box because it allows the electrons to be the farthest away from each other. This is also the reason why you are safe inside a car, not because of the rubber tires.

so your saying that if I have a giant metal box that I can open up and go into and if a lightning bolt strikes it, then I am safe from electrocution. but the metal will still melt from the strike.

Actually, yes. I know it sounds crazy, but the metal has a lot less resistance than your body, therefore it will go through the metal only, as electrical current flows through the path of least resistance.

Also, another funny thing about physics involves gravity. Imagine that you have a hollow sphere that you can sit in, and has the same mass as Jupiter, but is not as big as Jupiter. Everything outside the sphere would be subject to the force of gravity created by this mass and would basically tear apart. However, if you are inside the sphere, you would be completely unaffected, this is because no matter where you are inside the sphere, the forces always cancel out equally, and this is proven by the fact that on Earth, if you drilled a line from one point on the surface to another, and a line from one side directly to the opposite side, and travel both paths only accelerating due to the force of gravity, both trips would take 42 minutes! And ironically, 42 is the answer to life, the universe, and everything.

Oh, and you can only be electrocuted by a current if there is a change in voltage along it. So, technically, if you are floating next to an electrical wire, and grab on, you won't be electrocuted. You would only be electrocuted if the voltage between you and whatever else you are touching, is different.

Also when they korra, mako and bolin were electrocuted in the water, all the current should've gone directly from one electro-weapon to the other

also water doesn't actually conduct electricity

The minerals in the water conduct electricity. I'm pretty sure they dont use de-ionized water for pro bending matches.

I was waiting for Korra to use the airballsphere-thingy that Aang used to fly up and not touch any of the walls...

And she simply hung there with a piece of cloth, not cool...

What can one do?

Gah people, please think about it...

I thought she would airbend in "panic" or something to save herself. Stuff like that happens in cartoons. I was thinking about the same as Ruspanic was above...

I kind of expected that too, to be honest. I thought she'd either go into the Avatar State for the first time (since she finally learned to get in touch with her spiritual side), or she'd spontaneously learn to airbend because she had to, similar to the way Aang learned to earthbend (I know he didn't actually earthbend while trying to protect Sokka, but that's how he gained the ability to do it).
Tbh that's probably how Korra will eventually learn to airbend, considering there's only 3 episodes left, and she probably doesn't have much time left to train.
