First Electrocution Experience « on: May 19, 2018, 07:44:51 AM » Author: F96T12 DD VHO
Well lets go back in time to where I was about 6 y/o...

There was a dryer plug that was being installed with POWER ON! It was a 4-prong 240V outlet halfway out of the wall with every terminal and I touched it, fully grasping the whole thing. I touch everything but the ground and got 10 sec of 240V in my body and still luckily survived

Well, since you survived, it would be a shocking experience, not electrocution.  ;)

I haven't been shocked by AC current thankfully, but I have gotten shocked from batteries before.

Collect vintage incandescent and fluorescent fixtures. Also like HID lighting and streetlights.

Last time I installed a dimmer switch for some spot lights in my parents’ kitchen, I accidentally touched a live wire in the wall box. I forgot to turn off the breaker and the consequence was shocking, haha!  It felt as if my whole left arm was paralyzed, and a powerful and pulsing force was traveling through my arm.

Electrocuted or shocked at the age of 6?

Same here but I never learned from my mistake as I still (to this day and on) continue to get shocked

I've never been electrocuted (obviously since I'm still here .lol. ) but I have been shocked multiple times...most of them from Christmas lights, but a couple from light fixtures too.

Let's get the terminology right, shall we..? If you'd been electrocuted, you wouldn't be here now talking about it  :o

Receiving an electric shock is not quite the same thing  ;D :D

I've been zapped quite a number of times, the first must have been in my early teens I think.   :o
