Things You Didn’t Know You Wanted To Know: What Type Of Electric Shock Hurts More

Last Updated on: 13th July 2022, 10:21 am

Time for a little early morning science.

If you’re anything like me, well, first of all I’m sorry, but more importantly for our purposes at the moment, you’re probably too busy yelling things like “Ahh son of a whore!” when you manage to give yourself a shock to wonder if AC or DC electricity hurts more when traveling through the human body. But since this is the internet, somebody wondered. And in the search for an answer to this burning question, he decided to run some tests…on himself!

Now you know. It’ll make a nice bit of trivia the next time you have some friends over to help out with a DIY wiring project.
