If you're tinkering with an electrical outlet without cutting the power first, then it's natural selection at work.

Actual trained electrician here: I thought this post was about stabbing yourself in the hand(Which it happens a ******* ton with flat heads). Then i saw comments.

You won't die. Also you won't get shocked unless you touch both the HOT(Small slit) and the GROUND(half circle) or the HOT and NEUTRAL(big slit). If the screwdriver goes in any of the holes by itself, nothing will happen. I have installed countless Receptacles while the power is on. It isn't a big deal at all.

Even if you go get shocked with a basic 20A circuit in a house, it will scare you more than hurt you.

a good electrician turns the electricity OFF before working

I have never in my life seen a screwdriver without a handle made of some nonmetal material like plastic. I can't imagine how you would get shocked.

Natural selection hard at work here

If you are not smart enough to know you are supposed to pull the breaker before working on them, then you deserve to die regardless.

Why the actual **** would you be holding the metal part to use a screwdriver? Are you that ******* retarded?

First: you have to hit both holes at once.

Second: if you use decent screwdrivers you are protected against a certain amount of power. Mine are tested for 1000V

no you godamn idiot with AC 110V or 240V you dont need to hit both holes.
if you hit the phase (unless your standing on a rubber mat or have decent tools) you will get shocked.

So yeah... our ones are all clip on, i mean i have never seen one with a screw in it.

I used to have to hold a (flat head) screwdriver to the positive terminal of my cars battery when I needed to jump it. I would connect the jump cable to the shaft of the screw driver.

I think you'll be alright OP.

Even if you don't turn off the power, you actually have to touch both in order to get electrocuted. You know, closing the circuit. That's how it works here, at least.

no worry now a day all outlets at that height are tamper resistant    
you have to plug in the ground for the hot and neutral to open    
 now lets all get on our dolphins and rid into the sunset

Or you know, you could just get a screwdriver with a wooden grip.
#44 to #38 - anonymous (07/03/2014) [-]
I'll remember you buddy.

Aren't you suppose to turn off your electricity before messing with those anyway??
#5 - anonymous (07/02/2014) [-]
In jail you take the metal part off of the end of a pencil and place it in the end of a ciggerette then catch a spark by inserting into plug. Don't be a pussy my cousin did the penny thing and sure he's retarded but thats because his birth parents threw him down some stairs high on crack not because of a plug.

no way someone could die, it would either slip into the ground part (no power) or either one of the other two slots, not enough juice to kill anyone, plus all decent normal fricking screwdrivers have an insulated handle.
