Hopefully this doesn't catch on. Although I did have a helper that used to enjoy getting bit a little to much. May not be such an isolated case eh.

I assume that "holy man" will be meeting his creator in the near future.

Something tells me this guy hasn't had the "pleasure" of contacting 2 phases at once! [Linked Image] I wonder what voltages this clown is actually touching???

I wonder how the good doctor came up with this:
Quote
According to Dr Amit Chaturvedi who works at the Lalitpur Civil Hospital, the human body can absorb currents up to 12 volts. In the baba's case however, repeated exposure to electricity seems to have built up his body's tolerance levels to as much as 16 volts.
Sounds like the usual sort of electrical nonsense written in newspaper reports.

The "Current Baba" may be interested in making the Florida Dept. of Corrections an offer for a piece of equipment which will soon be surplus to requirements! [Linked Image]

The consumption of bhang, ganja, and liquor from the age of 10 might have something to do with his stupidity.

My uncle used the 'old timer' method of checking for voltage in a panel by contacting thumb and forefinger to the bus or cables...by the time he was retired he couldn't feel 120v without licking his thumb and finger first, and even then sometimes he'd check across phases to be sure it was hot!

EEK!! [Linked Image]

What a nut...

The human body can withstand thousands of volts; it is the available current that determines the level of cooking. Viz; electric fences send a pulse of > 10,000V down the line, but the available current is negligable for such a short burst. Having been brought up around dairy cows I learned not to pee near electric fencer units [Linked Image]

As you say; a typical 'knowledge-free' media response [Linked Image]


If hindsight were foresight, we'd all be millionaires!
