Hehehe I remember when I was a kid we're out in the fields and a buddy of mine decided to take a P against a fence, he had not seen the wire on the other side of it....I had....needless to say I decided to wait until I found myself a proper tree :twisted: it took the poor lad about 30 min. to stop screaming.

EDIT:
The lesson here was: Always check BOTH sides of a post before taking a piss, just because a field is empty does NOT mean the electric fence is off.

well, that one is more of a myth...the mythbusters found that to be busted/plausible....the thing that made it plausible was distance
Mythbusters on wikipedia wrote:Peeing on the Third Rail
Myth statement
Urinating on an electric fence can cause electrocution. (Spinoff of Peeing on the Third Rail)

Status
Busted/Plausible

Notes
Upon retesting the myth on an electric fence it was found to be Plausible, but the rail was still Busted. Distance was the factor, as the urine stream breaks up less at the close range needed for urinating on the fence than urinating on the third rail, thus ensuring a direct line of current between one's body and the electrical source.
now I know Wikipedia isnt the best place to go to for info, since anyone can alter it, but this is more or less what the mythbusters did
Player of Shosin Llevan
