    of course, that means we need to add moisture sensors to alert the cleaners!
    Or an electric fence charger w/ wires along the wall.

      Debunked by Mythbusters... Our "streams" look solid to us, but when viewed with a high speed camera they are a stream of separate droplets at about 6" from the "source", so no conductivity backward. And yes, they filmed it with high speed cameras.

        Agreed. Here, in UK, these in use locks are in all public places like restaurants, pubs, shopping malls. Usually it is just a red sector that is shown. I don't know if they are mandatory.

          I don't intend to test this out myself.


          Especially with most the fencers you see local farmers/ranchers using - they often have 12-15 kV output, and can jump a pretty good gap.
          I live for today, I'm just a day behind.

            Physics must have changed in the last 70 years, because I ended up on my backside in a muddy field road. I thought I had been struck from above.

              OK, I admit a mistake here. Mythbusters debunked a story of peeing on an electrified rail, not a fence.

              But apparently they later did a fence and found that you COULD get close enough to it to present a path for current to flow.

                  I think you can get fired for that now, maybe for even just mentioning it.

                          Well, sitting on the bog is not a fun activity. I had severe ulcerative colitis. You plan your route by where the loos are..........

                            I'm in an office complex that has 5 stories and restrooms shared by everyone on each floor, probably 6 different companies on our floor. Somewhere on our floor is a guy who has the worst aim I have ever seen. It's almost as if once he is inside of stall he not paying ANY attention or something (probably talking on his cell phone). Not a week goes by that I don't have to call the building manager to send in a cleaner even though the cleaners have taken to cleaning the bathroom just on our floor 3 times per day now because of him.
                            His parents should be ashamed.
                            That is just nasty. That guy needs someone to call him out on his filthy lack of control.
                            Make him start cleaning up his own mess, he will start aiming properly or start sitting down.

                            I guess his mama or his wife cleans up after him at home.

                            There can’t possibly be an excuse for that. It’s just pure lack of training and sorryness...

                              I believe they use switches in the door frame

                                it was my understanding the toilets have mandoors. those rely on a switch mechanism in the latch. not sure that latch would be compatible with a mandoor.
