    Well… um… ah… ditto nursemyra.

  4. Bunk Strutts Says:

    mak– I had a friend in Hi-skool who learned not to whiz on an electric fence. Not fatal, but no fun.

  5. izaakmak Says:

    Sounds like an example where fatality might be the desired outcome!

    I was thinking about doing that, … but just a little wouldn’t hurt … would it?

  7. Bunk Strutts Says:

    plane– I promise you won’t feel a thing… forever after.

    Ja, es ist eine Dummheit zu tun.

    To planetross: You know, it’s one of those “curiosity” things, like putting your tongue on cold metal fencepost in sub-zero weather to “see if what they say about it is true.” 🙂

    Some cattle/hog/sheep farms have electric wire in case any livestock should wander off. It is a much lower voltage than perhaps a streetcar cable, but I have heard peeing on one of those fences (barefoot or not) can kill, or at least give you a permanent learning experience that never grows dim or doubtful 🙂

    When IO was in the Navy a similar thing actually happened in Sydney, Australia at the Navy’s Garden Island Dockyard. A dockyard worker pee’d off the edge of the wharf & accidently misdirected his stream of urinary flow onto a set of 440 volt warship shore supply connection terminals. They later used pictures of his fried corpse on a safety poster. The photos were not nice

  12. Bunk Strutts Says:

    Tony– Not a good thing to do.

    A contractor friend told me a story about a construction project near the U.S. border outside of San Diego. They’d pulled wire only to find that it had been stolen the next day, presumably for copper. So they rewired the building, and it happened again.

    So they worked overtime, rewired, and powered up.

    The female thief did not survive her third attempt.
