@LuboŇ°Motl Thanks for the comment, the quote is actually from a paper, I wonder if you could expand your comment into answer so that I can give you the award...

comment Why does the universe exhibit three large-scale spatial dimensions?
I wonder if its possible to answer this question, as it asks for not merely the law but a reason for the law. Asking why gravity one should terminate at a phrase like because we observed... Likewise the 3+1 dimension theory exists because quantum experiments were observed - in the same manner as it is increasingly apparent more dimensions might not exist due recent LHC runs.

comment Can high charges (like $1\times 10^{-3}$ coulomb) be acheived?
@MichaelLuciuk does charge stored in a capacitor bank qualify? The largest capacitor is 50 MeJ at 24kV, which means about ~1K Coulombs depending on AC/DC, you may be surprised to learn the trade-off associated with capacitance...
