You touch, you die.
@Wespala, nah, it'd probay blow the breaker
@Darth Panserbjorne, a breaker in your brain.
@Darth Panserbjorne, most definitely
@That one lurker, gottem
@Wespala, nah you touch you get a painful zap
It should trip the fuse as soon as you plug it in.
@AussiePatrick, "Should" not necessarily "Will." You could also get a loud pop.
@AussiePatrick, who says they are even using fuses? Direct from the power source!
@AussiePatrick, ya, that's a short circuit so either a blow fuse or a house fire
@ReadyPlayer3, if you're living in a place with no fuse box then there are probably worse things waiting for you.
@AussiePatrick, yeah, sorry, my sarcasm didn't really come through. I was downplaying the possible fatal nature of this "hack" with a noise that doesn't sound threatening at all. In all seriousness though...
Please, nobody should do this.
Wow, that’s super stupid. In addition to electrocuting you if you touch the metal, that’s going to cause an electrical fire, it’s only a matter of time.
@I Are Lebo, better hope that cable thing is made of straight rubber 😂 youd think theyd take it a step further and, assuming they're keeping the same setup, at least have the hook made of rubber or some less-conductive material than metals
@I Are Lebo, as soon as it gets plugged in the breaker will trip but you will see a good spark before.
The premise is cool but the execution is electrocution.
@Needless Contrarian, #Deathhacks
Well in the event that this doesnt trip the breaker. It is now basically a heating element (think how toasters work) and is gonna be a fire soon
That makes life so much simpler
If those hooks were plastic would that work?
Get out the dancing Nigerian funeral
Oh no, im not falling for that again.
I smell.... Story time!!!!
*Excitedly awaits story*
Or you can just wrap the cord around on the plug itself and not electrocute yourself
