Clearly I've been living a sheltered life.

Yep. I took the battery out of my garage door opener and gave it the standard test. Been doing this my whole life.

I've also grabbed an electric fence at my grandpa's farm. That is very much not recommended, especially if you're older and have heart issues. It's a good way to have your heart explode through your chest wall and land 30 feet away in a puddle of pain and stupid.


i remember back when i was about 10 or so we went to visit a friends family in Tennesee...we were trying to pull his 4 wheeler out of a small stream that ran through their property and i backed into the electric fence :*)

Crazy story about electricity. One time when I was a younger dude I was jumping around on my bed, just general little kid horseplay. Anyway I fell back off the bed so that the back of my head/neck hit the lower part of the wall where the electrical outlet was. It just so happened there was a lamp plugged in but the plug wasn't all the way in to the outlet. I was wearing a necklace with some sort of pendant on it, I forget, I also don't remember if it was gold or silver. Anyway, the back of the necklace landed perfectly on the exposed portion of the prongs that were partially plugged in and made a connection. I wasn't electrocuted, maybe a little...I forget, but I remember the necklace "popped" and the pendant flew off. :-o

This sounds potentially even more fun than licking it.

I did this a couple weeks ago. That was the only time in my life that I ever wished Ben Franklin didn't invent the stuff.

I too have done this, it hurts. I've been zapped by a 220 plug as well....that REALLY hurts. I had to sit down for a while after that one.

It was pretty crappy, I still remember it vividly. We were finishing up a brick job and I was packing up the tools, our big brick table saw ran on 220, I went to unplug it from the dryer outlet and ZAP! I literally felt ill afterward. :-t

Where would I get zapped by 440? So I can be sure to avoid going near it. :-o
