fun fact: water got such high resistance that it is not enough alone to transfer electricity over long distances (You will have to place your finger between the wires to actually feel it).   
But if the water is dirty (sand, mud, chloride, salt) it wil lover it will become more conductive and will allow for a longer distance to travel.   
Here is a video showing what i am talking about: www.youtube.com/watch?v=dcrY59nGxBg   
   
That said, you shouldn't try this at home even if you got totally clean water.

In truth, that power strip doesn't conduct unless something is plugged in. You can have in the water fully and those people would be OK. Granted most other power strips would be like making toast in the bathtub, so I can see why they look stupid.

The one with the chainsaw isn't that bad. The chain of the chainsaw doesn't move unless you pull the trigger mechanism (which I believe is part of the throttle). Most of the time it has a locking mechanism on it as well, which means the trigger can't be depressed by accident.

But, honestly, I really don't know much about chainsaws and avoid them in the first place.

Chainsaws use a centrifugal clutch, when the RPM's reach a curtain point the chain spins.

Most of the time the chain doesn't move when started, but there is a chance it can. If the idle is set to high, the chain will move on its own while idling or on start up. The idle adjustment screw tends to spin in or out over time due to engine vibration. If you prime the engine with to much starter fluid or gas(which is easy to do), you will get a huge RPM spike on initial start up. Sometimes it does it just for ***** and giggles. Saws typically come with a chain brake, but you have to disengage it to start the saw(at least that's how mine works.)

depends on the chainsaw, mine wont start unless youre holding the trigger down, which has its own lock. you could pull the cord all day and it would never start if youre not holding the trigger

I have 3 chainsaws at my joint and when you start all of them the chain spins straight away, until you give the throttle a hit then it stops and the chainsaw idles. Or maybe its just and Australian thing...

So basically it's dependent on the particular chainsaw, but can we agree that he is still trusting his nuts to a mechanical system that may or may not be operational? Just saying, what if the safety mechanisms have all failed right before this happened and he doesn't know.

I treat them like unloaded guns.
I'm just not going to **** with it even if it is safe, and I sure as hell am not putting it near my junk.

I agree. And in fact, they're in the safest location. If it falls, it will most likely fall to one side, not straight down. The most dangerous place would be about 6-10 feet to either side.

Nope, That only nets you an honorable mention. To receive a full Darwin Award you must have drank from the big Pepsi in the sky.

Nah, honorable mention is when you do something stupid, but survive. If you remove yourself permanently from the gene pool in any way you can win a Darwin, and that includes removal of reproductive organs.

I've got the first and second books right here. To quote from the first.

"To win nominees must significantly improve the gene pool by eliminating themselves from the human race in an astonishingly stupid way (...) The prime tenet of the Darwin Award is that we are celebrating the self-removal of incompetent genetic material from the human race. The potential winner must therefore render himself deceased, or at least incapable of reproducing."

You have to remove yourself from the gene pool. So you have to die or become sterile.

Cause it isn't dying

It's removing yourself from the gene pool

Terminating your reproductive organs or dying are common methods of doing so
