When you see the words electric fence and experiment in the same sentence you can probably surmise that someone is going to get shocked. This video will not disappoint you. What we have here is a basic scientific understand of how electricity works.

Electricity seeks the path of least resistance and as long as each of the people in the hand to hand chain are insulated and not grounded there is no shock. The moment the last person joins the chain and provides a path for the current to flow through all of the people and into the ground that is when the shocking results occur.

We don't recommend you ever toy with an electric fence. For goodness sake never touch or toy with a downed power line either. The results can be more lethal than just a tingling sensation and a desire to urinate in your pants.
