Beyond Doofus . . .


There's a group of guys in Finland calling themselves The Dudesons.  They do all sorts of crazy things and record them on video.  This one made me shrivel up . . .





I hope they didn't record it for posterity's sake, because after that he may not have any posterity!  You can see a lot more of their stunts on their YouTube channel, and at their Web site.

Blatant stupidity... It's going to get them killed! Hopefully BEFORE they sire any sprogs...

Not long ago I read some nameless denizen of the Webz' assertion that "Peeing on an electric fence won't really do anything to you." I beg to differ, and not because of watching this video.

I saw a slo-mo video of a stream of pee and it is never a solid stream. It always has breaks in the stream, preventing a path for direct current to flow.

So, you can pee on a 12V battery and nothing happens... no current path. BUT, an electric fence has very high voltage that pulses and can arc across the gaps in the pee stream, resulting in what you see in this video.

If it had been high voltage and high current(like a power line), the dude would have crisped his privates and most of the rest of him.

A calculated risk resulting in a painful shock but I'll bet these guys knew the science behind this from the get-go.

As a kid I pee'd on a pasture fence once, since then I have never pee'd on any fence.

My father-in-law grew up on a farm, many years ago. He has told me many stories from his youth, but two of the most memorable are 1)peeing on the electric fence (yes, it was a dare) and 2) holding onto the electric fence the longest(like rodeo bull riding, and yes, it was a dare).

The electric fences that he tells about are not always charged, but emit a pulse every so often (like every ten seconds or so). It was entirely possible to pee on the fence and not have that happen. Sort of like Russian roulette with high voltage.

According to him, it hurt enough that you'd never want to do it again. But nobody ever died from it, either.

Any country boy knows not to pee on the fence. I have sat and watched a fence arch against wet grass. Kind of like watching the camp fire.
