I almost died.

My computer died, so I went to plug it in. It's dark in my room and i can't see shit. I find my charger and use my fingers to guide it into the outlet. However, my finger was on the metal part when i plugged it in and it shocked me. It hurt.

pfft I stuck keys in a power outlet when I was 3-5.

Depending on how bad you got shocked, it may have messed with your tempature/heart and you should probably go to the ER unless it was like, a second or something.

For the past four years my shower has constantly tripped the circuit breaker. We never knew why so we'd just flick it back on and carry on.

Recently it stopped working altogether, we got an electrician in and basically the water has just been flowing around all the electrics in the shower. Every time I have taken a shower in the past 4 years I could have died. Shocking yourself on a plug has nothing on that, bitch.

Okay Pit, I get it, your life is worse than mine. Whatever. That shower story is funny as hell though.

If your arm feels weird tell your parents and explain to them you might need to see a doctor.
See what they have to say about it.

You probably have health insurance, the only draw back I can see is they might really want a parent there, but I can see them being reliable if they didn't check up on you just because your parents couldn't take off work or w/e.

Electricity is an evil bitch and will cause some lovely internal damage if it wants to. Best get it checked out if you don't feel normal again shortly.

As an aside, can you shoot lightning from your hands now?

But serious Pit. You are making me nervous as hell. It's been 30 minutes since the accident. I feel okay but my fingers tingle.

30 minutes?

Get worried if it's still there in 30 hours.
