If you put nylon strings on you can't hear anything ebcause there not metal. And the guitar runs of magnetics... And your guitar explodes...

explodes?
as in Just kidding?

Afraid not.

I did the same thing with an old beater because I was curious. I put the strings on and when I turned around to grab my tuner the thing exploded. Really hurt my side, but didn't leave any permanent damage. I'm just glad it wasn't one of my nice guitars.

literally rofl'ing

Well, steel acoustic strings are probably less magnetic than electric strings (depending on the material). Just, unless you know what you're getting into, don't go with acoustic strings on electric.
Oh, and the guitar will explode. No joke. When it blew, the neck pickup broke a window. Not fun. Try explaining that to your mom.

Mom: What did you do to your room?
Me: My guitar exploded

Yeah, there's a reason they keep guitar strings behind the counter and so carefully organized, and in special bags all separated.

This poor kid probably thinks we're serious.

are you telling me none of you even bothered to read the volatile-guage warning on the back of the strings before you change them?

to answer your question TS you could put any king of acoustic strings on an electric except the bronze wound ones. if you choose the latter, the phosphor in the bronze will oxodise when exposed to concetrated amounts of magnetic current (ie. an electric pickup) which in turn will give your hands serious chemical burns if they come in contact with the strings.
