other - "Peeing on an electrical fence" - because it will really give you an electrical shock (people die from this each year)

    You should not die from peeing on an electric fence unless it is someone who has made their own with lethal current or you have a weak heart/pacemaker. Proper electric fences use a voltage of around 10Kvolt but in very short non-lethal pulses. Of course some idiots just plug a length of conductor into mains and manage to kill people every so often but then you have a good chance to die on contact, no peeing needed.

    I can confirm one case of pee on fence survival, a mate of mine did this when we were about 14 to prove how tough he was. He screamed like a girl and ended up on his back with an embarrassing wet patch. Most amusing for the rest of us but the string of profanity from him confirmed his non-dead status.

    Cheers,
    R.
