    Electricity

    I've found some out about electricity.
    I accidently put my finger in a lightsocket while it was on, and I got a 250V (or whatever the fuck it is here) shock.

    And I can tell you.
    My hair didn't stand up.
    And I didn't shake like a motherfucker.
    It didn't even hurt that much, it just gives shock, and afterwards it just feels like a slight burn.

    So all the things that are said to be true about you "touching" electricity aren't true.

    And if I die because of this
    Then goodbye to all

    I'm going now anyways, so ttyl (fuck yeah, paris hilton)

    Because it's not powerful enough. It takes about 500 volts to kill someone

    No it takes 5 ampère to kill someone.
    Tasers use like 5000 volts but they remove the ampère so you don't die.

    Volt doesn't kill you! Ampere does.

    No it doest, electricity doesn't play a role here, amperes do, how ever, only 1 amps is needed to kill a human.

    Try it with something metal. While touching something metal with the other hand. Then you will really feel it. Actually, don't because I will feel at least a little bad if you die.

    Personal experience: Working on a computer and touching a live exposed power supply cord. Felt like having a seizure, and i got freaking burned on my fingers.

    You're all wrong 50mA is enough to stop your heart. It depends on the resistance that your body offers to the electricity.
