Re: O/T Electrical Arc Video

grab your rod and find out [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

THeres another cool vid out there somewhere with a little black bear that climbs up a pole and steps on the primary of a can, he straightens right out, hair stands up, catches fire, and he falls to the ground. Bear promptly gets up, shakes around a little bit, and *walks away*.

Make you wonder why the human body is so weak comparitively to others out there....

Not a matter of weakness, but direction of flow. Most people have the current cross their heart because the current enters through their hands/head/shoulder/chest and exits through their feet. The bear had it enter one foot and leave through the other.

Re: O/T Electrical Arc Video

The bear had it enter his foot and leave the paw, it did travel much the same way it would in a human with one end of the body to the other travel.

My point wasn't only for electricty, but "strenght" in general. There are many things that are fatal or quite near fatal to humans that many other creatures simply shrug off and keep going....
