metaphorical question.

if i were to throw a toaster into a bath full of water, would it short the electricity in the house.


if answer was yes....

would it work as a suicide method, or would i just end up in the bath with a toaster and all the power shorted?

thanks

Why would you throw your toaster in the bathtub? You'd get the bread all wet, and soggy toast is nasty.

So let me get this straight...

You want to toast water?

soggy crumpets maybe?

It would short out everything but the water in the bath will be electrified for a small amount of time, you would die if you were already in the bathtub and then dropped it in. Not if you dropped it in then got in.

This is actually a suicide thread, isn't it?

I don't know. Personally, I have never encountered a scenario where bread/bread-like substances mixed well with water. Tastes marvelous with soup, however.

cool. so if i were in the tub, then pulled in the toaster, the short amount of time the water was electrified would be enough to kill me?

any confermation?

you're going to look like an idiot, so don't do it. and if you really want to know, a toaster does not produce enough electricity to kill you.

i am sure. you are going to need something a lot more powerful to generate enough electricity to kill you. btw, if your looking for attention by looking like a total moron, you fail miserably. if you are really going to kill yourself, just don't

A hairdryer works, thats why you never have a hairdryer near the bath.

i dont have a hair dryer. and shouldnt they be the same principle, only a hairdyer has a fan behind the toasting bit to blow the hot air.
#23
Well basically anything that has power running to it, and put in water, will send electricity though the water killing you.

No, being shocked isn't fun. I've done it many many times, I used to live in an old house and the wiring must have been all sorts of ****ed up. If you touched the counter and the fridge at the same time it would electrocute you, same with the stove, and sometimes...I have no idea how, but if you were touching the counter with both hands it would electricute you. Obviously most of these problems occurred in the kitchen. Incidentally I once put my finger in the light socket of the fridge on accident, I was just raiding the fridge and I was holding on to the top inside edge of the fridge, where the light would be, next thing I know my whole body tenses up and I'm stumbling backward...it didn't take me too long to put two and two together. Long story short, I ate some food.

You are kidding, right? Toasters don't generate electricity, they use it and convert it to thermal energy and some light energy. In North America, you're going to get 240 Volts from your outlet straight up your ass.

False.

It seems like there are always threads about shit they've already done on Mythbusters. Does nobody watch that show?

I stopped watching after they got the other people in that do a side project. They're retarded. Adam and Jamie are the only ones worth watching IMO.

Or even better, if you only have piss in your water.

The real question is wether you wear clothes or not while doing this, i mean who wants to be found dead and naked? but then again, no one goes in the bath fully clothed, thats why if i were to kill myself i wouldn't choose my method.

In all seriousness though, it has been explained in mythbusters, you'll be toast.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.

Yeah? And? Volts =/= amps. A weak static shock from touching a doorknob or getting out of a car is over 10,000V; 240 isn't even noticeable.

Now, an amp running through you will fry you beyond recognition.

Yes, if you are in the U.K, the toaster will be attached to the mains, so if you get in the bath tub then dopeed the toaster in with you while it was on, then you would almost certainly die.

I hope you are talking hypothetically however, electrocution would be a bad way to die, you are better off taking a fukload of sleeping pills or strong painkillers with a load of booze, getting into a warm bath and slitting your wrists.

But it would be better if you didn't kill yourself unless you are really really suffering in your life.
