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.

Nope. I'm still cold.

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.

But serious, my arm feels weird.


Well then get it checked out.

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.
sometimes I see us in a cymbal splash or in the sound of a car crash

Got a 240v shock earlier this year.
Beer was my doctor.

I had a friend who told the class when he was 16 that he still removes toast from the toaster with a metal knife while its still on and had no idea what the problem was with it

I do that sometimes on a morning when I'm still a little dead <.< Only with crumpets though, toast comes out easily.

My old computer was a hunk of shit, one time I turned it on with the on button (REALLY?) and it electrocuted me and knocked me across the room. Shit was cray. It was in the skip the next day.

DVD players man, you should unplug them when you load the disc tray back onto the rails.

I get static shocks off everything in the recording studio at university- the mixing desk, the computer, the chairs, the mics, even the windows.

I get so traumatised that I can't work anymore and have to leave.

This is why when I was a little kid I stopped messing with my dads guitar.

From the strings/pickups or something I felt slight buzz/shock feelings.

It's torture, when you don't know if you're going to get a shock off something, or you know you will and you're trying to build up the courage to touch it.

Some people seem to think it's right to mock a person with this phobia.

My parents told me that when I was like 2, they found me with a pair of metal scissors mere seconds away from cutting the television wire.

Those McDonalds plastic play parks with all the tubes and stuff. Those were static shock habitats. I hated them.

Isn't it that amplitude that kills you and not the voltage?

Current(amperage), if you want to get technical.
Potential difference(voltage) can, if high enough, cause electricity to spark, which is awesome.
