As we know... volts do not kill someone... amps do. I suspect if 460V at 100A (or for that matter 40A) hit someone... it would do strange things to their body.
Ever see that thing about popping a hotdog? The power co shows it to linemen. They put a hotdog between probes and hit it with 8700 volts (what is usually on the lines just before the Xformers that feed your house). Hotdog explodes instantly when hit. Literally no parts larger than the end of your pinky left.
The human eye is the most sensitive part of the body exposed to air... it probably is the part which reacts the worst to external forces also.
Just my , not arguing with anyone.

As far as the chair goes under 6 amps. Otherwise the body would COOK
Guess he ran out of blue wirenuts...

It only takes 1/10 of an amp to kill you at least thats what they taught us in the Navy.

I was thinking about painting them orange and using them as safety road cones to put around my van when I park.
i have bypassed disconnects when i had to get something working ....
then i cut the handles off so they cant be operated anymore....
Ive had my ass jumped by building owners for doing that and i ask .. .do you want a dead guy on your roof ? they usually shut up after that
GFCI's trip at 6mA. It's enough to make you rather uncomfortable, but will keep you alive. Now I know the Navy uses some rather unique power systems, but I'm pretty sure the 6mA is fairly standard.

Some dumbass had feed the pumps from a new breaker and left the equipment number plaque on the old breaker.

Wow...at least my hacks are courteous...
(The wise men of modern thought) adore a god made of putty or of wax - plastic, effeminate, molluscous, with no masculine faculty about him, and no quality that entitles him to the respect of just and honest men, for a being who cannot be angry at wrongdoing is destitute of one of the essential virtues, and a moral Ruler who is not angry with the wicked, and who refuses to punish crime, is not divine. ---Spurgeon
