That would be too scary for that guy. Poor fellow.

Good thing the charge went through his legs (and other portions of the male anatomy such as feet) instead of his heart. Just wondering, what was the voltage and the peecofarads?

A friend did this to himself, back in the mid-late 1960's. At the time, he was living in the loft over a barn on some friends' ranch. Troubled with rodents, he built a trap powered by a rectified television (yeah, vacuum tube) power supply (~350 VDC) and some large electrolytics. One night, after much "beery relaxation", he went to relieve himself - in the wrong corner of the loft. Fortunately, the otherwise dry oak timbered floor didn't conduct enough to cause permanent harm... Dave

And every electrical utility company has a story about some guy who relieved himself on a high voltage wire. Just as painful and little more permanent
