This happened to me once.  It was a shocking experience. Cry

Only once...so you weren't revolted by the experience...? Grin

I wonder if this circuit would have an SWR?

Depends on exactly what "SWR" stands for in this instance.  Shocked weewee ratio = 1:1.

Probably only a descending wave!    Grin

I find this topic, and the posts therein, to highly vulgar, rude, disgusting and extremely offensive.

Offensive perhaps, but so didactic considering that "going" in the wrong place can cause both electrocution AND death! 

BTW any risk from sneezing on HV?

I know that on those parts of the British railway system with a third rail electrification, it was (and maybe still is) advised to train crews avoid so doing. It may be distasteful, but it is a safety matter....

I pose the same question.  I'll tell you one thing--this is mild compared to some of the humor and vulgarities being spoken out in the world.  Hey, if you don't like the humor, don't read the thread.  Simple.

Many, many years ago, I started my career with IBM as a Customer Engineer working on "unit record" equipment that included the newer key punch and verifier equipment.  One of the tools we were issued was a probe that consisted of a neon light and a banana plug at the end of a wire.

Years later, one of my co-workers had a farm with horses and had an electric fence installed, but not the electric part of it.  I was promised a home-made dinner if I'd hook it up and test it.

Not even 5 minutes later I wondered if it would work.  Remembering the probe in my tool kit, I retrieved it and holding on to the banana plug touched the end of the probe to the fence.  Oh, mama, that was dumb.  How could a neon bulb pass that much through to me?  Some thirty years later and I still don't know how.  I can't remember what I had for supper tonight, but I still remember that SHOCKING experience.

A friend and I was trout fishing one very cool autumn day when we ran across an electric fence across the stream.  I big argument ensued as to how or who was going to test the fence.

My buddy, being bolder than me touched it, found it dead and went through.  I walked up to the fence and touched it with my steel fishing pole and it damn near stretched me out horizontally! 

To this day I think that ##$&(R^& farmer was watching the whole thing and had the fence down until it was my turn to cross.
