The capacitors hold enough juice in them to give you a zap for up to 10 minutes mate. Muppet!! lol, best way to learn though!! still laughing at you now!!

Hahaha. Next time sticky your tongue on it to check if the cap is discharged.

If the capacitor has a large load on it (like a big resistor) it will take a while to discharge.
