    If you were unlucky, the shock could cause your heart to stop ..

    Now, this....is why they tell you not to put your body parts in a bug zapper. (yes I did read that warning before I stuck my finger in.) I was curious about how the bug feels upon entry. This basically is what happens....first...intense burning, electrical pain, followed by sparks, and the odd aroma of cooking meat.....yours.

    The moral here is....don't put your finger in a bug zapper, no matter how curious you are or who dares you.

    I accidently shocked myself today, from a $15 zapper. It was much more painful then i thought. Actually intense pain for about 5 secs then is gone. I have high pain tolerance, have broken my finger without screaming.

    They don't put out near enough current to kill you. It would make you say a few words your mother wouldn't approve of.

    They would get a shock but it would not kill them unless they had a medical condition. (Pacer)
