Peeing is fraught with danger in Austria.
Elekroshutz is a book at Vienna's Technisches Museum, containing thirty illustrations of how one can die by electricity. Bre Pettis uploaded the lot to Flickr! Here's a slideshow.
30 Ways to Die of Electrocution [Bre Pettis's blog via Gizmodo]
I suspect that a lot of these hazards haven’t really existed since the days of knob-and-tube wiring, particularly the plenitude of ungrounded appliances in bathrooms, and high-voltage telephone circuits.
We need new, sustainable ways to electrocute ourselves with solar and wind power.
I find it interesting that while most are directed as warnings to humans, some are warnings for animals who may happen to be reading the book and one is actually an instruction on how to create for a lethal prank.
