Today, I found out that when an officer screams, "DON'T MOVE OR I'LL TASE YOU", it really means, "If you so much as flinch I'm going to shoot and 50,000 volts will be directed through your nose and groin." FML

Shit....finished the whole documentary there. It's bad enough I don't carry my ID when I bike, just in case it falls outta my pocket. Now I gotta fear being arrested just because I don't have it on my person. Hell, I gotta fear even being within 1 mile of a police officer after seeing that!

Dammmmn. I watched it too and started crying at the part with that burnt kid who was murdered. The ones in that video are just...assholes, twisting everything and flat out lying because they have a badge, meaning the law's on their side. You don't see /me/ beating people up because they "disrespect" me - those cops do it because they know they can get away with it.

Anyway, FYL OP. That can't feel very nice. D=

Don't try to sue the police! If you spent every day of your life with a strong chance of being shot then you are going to get a little edgy. I know this because my dad was a police officer and he died from a random person on a random street. He was shot point blank by someone who knew nothing about him or his family. Next time you see a police officer don't just walk by, thank them for what they do.

Doctors should be thanked too. And red cross volunteers. And soldiers. And inventors. And mail employees. And people who work in retail, who give great service. And just about anyone else with a job. But there are assholes of all types, and there is no doubt that many retail workers, mail employees, inventors, soldiers, red cross volunteers, doctors AND POLICEMEN don't even deserve a millisecond of your time. I'm not saying your dad was a bad man, but if you really think policemen should be thanked just for being policemen, then you might as well go around thanking every single person you pass on the street.

Actually, a taser works in two phases. Phase one is 50,000 volts so that the electricity can arc to the victim. As soon as the connection is made, phase two kicks in and the volts drop to 5,000. So TECHNICALLY, for a brief second, OP was tased by 50,000 volts

This is quite correct, it's current that kills you, not voltage. Doesn't even need to be much current, 0.2A is enough to potentially kill a human.

Problem is you have Ohm's Law I=V/R for Ohmic materials and as a general rule, the more volts you have the more current there is. Once you start hitting 5 million volts many molecules will ionize and change properties even so yah voltage will kill you despite what teachers tell you.

Myth Busters is 100% garbage shit for morons who get all their information from stupid TV shows. Anyone quoting it has to seriously have been born without a brain inside their head or something.


Mr. 101's post... Allow me to use my Irate Dumbass-to-English Translator.
*whrr, click, whrr, DING*

There we go. Ahem:

"I don't like Mythbusters, so I'm going to accuse it of being full of shit without a rat's ass worth of proof! I just smoked crack and sniffed paint thinner before typing this!"
