Today, I'm supposed to start my new job as a Crime Scene Tech. Instead, I managed to electrocute myself with my hairdryer. I'll now have to attempt to explain to them that I really am qualified to safely operate an electrostatic lifting device, and other expensive equipment. FML

Anyways... She's still retarded...

Electrocution does not always kill people. There are many many people who live to tell the tale. Know the facts before you try and correct people..

If she accidentally shocked herself with an electric chair maybe... Electricution is the term used when an electrical current passes through an organism. The voltage/amperage and thus lethality in the current makes no difference.

No. NO. NO!! Do you people really not know the difference between an electrocution and a shock? Here, I've gone through the trouble of looking it up for you.

Electrocution (v): 1: to execute (a criminal) by electricity. 2: to kill by electric shock.

It drives me completely apeshit crazy when people try to call someone stupid and try to "correct" her when the original person is ABSOLUTELY CORRECT. I expect thumbs up for finalyearsofhate and apologies from the rest of you lot.

Sorry, DeeVee, but electrocution does mean death by electric shock. It is a word formed by combining electricity and execution.

It's like drowning. If you drown, you're dead.

Electrocution means you've been killed by electricity... Is this what happens when people can't go and check their facts on wikipedia before posting?

I guess im sorry... I've grown up having people say "electrocute" when they shocked you with static electricity, or were shocked by anything... Thus why I wasn't aware of the literal meaning. I assume OP is the same, considering they used it the same way.
