Tough Mudder Electrical Wires - Will I Die? 3/7/2011 3:16PM Reply | Return to Index | Report Post
10 Mile obstacle course in Virginia this fall says 1 obstacle is wires that can cause 10,000 volt shock, is that true or a lie? Seems like that would kill people.
They're lying right?
nope

Not if the amps are low enough. Stun guns are like 50,000+ volts.

Ran the Tough Mudder earlier this year and had a blast. The worst that those wires will do is shut down your body and make you poop yourself. Otherwise, you're all good.

Only a moron who knows nothing about electricity would ask a question like this. It's not the volts, it's the amps that kill you.

if a 14kV transmission wire falls to the ground it will arc and conduct through only a very small amount of moisture all the way through to your body and kill you.
