Yup, it's not voltage that is deadly, it's the amperage.

Have you ever seen those electro static machines. The ones were you touch them and you're hair stands straight up and a huge lightning bolt jumps out to your hands? Those generate up to 300,000 volts, but are extremely low in amps. 300,000 volts would be like a slap across the bareback with a wet wiffle ball bat....

So i know what 300,000 volts feels like, that stings like a *****, exept the whiffle bat wasnt wet, but i smakced someone in our pool with a whiffle bat, and it was wet ( BIG, BIG, BIG red mark on back)

Yeah the conclusion here is static+mobo=hell for a gamer
