Three electrical engineering professors conducting an experiment to prove how birds can sit on a live wire without harm. If there is no return path it is perfectly safe...........until someone tries stepping out of the pool to disconnect the power.

Sorry, but I thought I had a good link to a humorous caption, but my tablet won't let me do it, and I can't cancel it with the way the editing setup is...so the bottom line is that right now is that I'm kinda dead in the water.

And young people are doing this for "fun and adventures"? If you or me were to attempt to try this, lyn, there would have to be be a trained paramedics team nearby, with a clear roadway travel to the nearest cardiactric care hospital. I'm actually semi curious of what being tasered feels like, under the right circumstances, while not being arrested by an overzealous, Mr.Zappy cop. There are YouTube videos of young people's bodies and faces distortingly recorded as they are willingly volunteering to be zapped by tasers. Its intriguing to say the least.

Hi guys, I'm from the TV show "Miserable Creatinious Maladroit Humanoids" and we would like to film your demise.

Sure, knock yourselves out.

Hey Dug, what does "demise" mean?
