It was early in my audio days and I was fooling around with a Dynaco ST-70. Using a DMM I rested my finger on something. It was a shock that made me realize this stuff really CAN kill you.
If I did that today it would have killed me.
We used to have cattle and used electric fencing. Sometimes you would touch it when closing a gate or incidentally while working around it. But that shock will make you scream and lose control of your muscles. Fortunately, the current carried by the fencing wire is only a few milliamps so no real damage. But it really hurts.
