i talked to a guy the other day that said that a fully charge capacitor can kill or heart someone if touching both + and - terminals.

is this true?

Yes. Capacitors are, by design, made to discharge nearly all of their stored energy at once.. If nothing else, a smaller cap will give you one hell of a nasty shock..

Yep. They can be somewhat dangerous if you don't know what your doing.
