Dear Dr. Chris,

Will you get shocked if you urinate on an electric fence? 

Thanks.

Ye indeedy as Sophie says! My brother decided between ten and twelve years of age that he would Whiz on the wire fence around an old horse pasture ' and much to his and all of our dismay was was promptly and abruptly zapped quite hard by the fence and let me say he never tried it a second time.. as a matter of fact he would not even come in the vicinity, a shocking education I must say!  LOL.. LOL...LOL 

Lets just say "electricity travels up stream!!!"

You have to do it in such a manner that the stream of liquid breaks into droplets before it reaches the fence.

When I do it over a bridge, I find the water's very cold and very deep, too.

Yes, a fella will get electrocuted when peeing on an electric fence. I screamed like a girl and danced round holding on for dear life to me wee-neir. Not at all fun.

PLEASE ! PLEASE ! Trust me . Peeing on an electric fence HURTS! No it wont kill you but the spasm that several THOUSAND volt flowing up your urine stream and thru your kidneys causes IS NOT PLEASANT ! I walked like John Wayne for days .......
