this is extreme. the 3rd prong on an electrical plug is the like really big ground. idk, stick a metal rod into that, and then hold onto that rod.

if u die, it isn't my fault.

Torture

Electric shocks have been used as a method of torture, since the received voltage and amperage can be controlled with precision and used to cause pain whilst avoiding obvious evidence on the victim's body. Torture can use electrodes fixed to parts of the victim's anatomy. The genitalia are amongst the most painful, and at the same time humiliating. The nipples of a woman's breasts are also another very frequent target. Another frequent method of torture is by stunning with an electroshock gun such as a cattle prod or a taser, (provided a sufficiently high voltage and non-lethal current is used in the former case).

In a case in Vietnam, a man was electroshocked by a guerilla warrior for not giving out information. The warrior discharged 5000 volts to the man's chest using a improvised electric shocking device made out of 2 electrodes connected to the man's chest(around the nipples) and 1 on the man's groin and set off by a computer. The man survived the extreme torture which he described as 'like going to hell and back'. The man had severe injuries to his heart and lungs and was rendered impotent by the local doctor. He suffered for 10 years with numerous treatments and finally died from cardiac arrest.
