69yr old Kiwi bloke uses neighbours 8000volt electric fence to correct his irregular heart beat after getting sick of waiting for treatment at his local hospital.

Good old Kiwis invented number 8 wire, speedboats, bungy jumping and now a home defibrillator.

Sorry can't work out how to provide a link but it was in the NZ Herald today and also posted in the uk daily mail. If someone could help me out by posting the article I would be very great full.

Wow, an electric fence. Why not just hold the sparkplug on the lawnmower instead. Any gas engine with plugs will work, cars have plugs.

Volts vs amps is a possible reason. I dunno.

Heart irregular and weak, low potassium. Heart irregular and strong, too much potassium. Overall weak body and too slow heartbeat, possibly low sodium.

I am parrotting what I was told by an ER doctor here, of course, I checked out if it was true and it was.

That reply is just so stupid it defies logic.

This is not about your US crazy health care non-system. It is about jump starting your heart.

Our healthcare is free.

The kiwis also invented the eggbeater and the referees whistle, and helped Bondy cheat in Australia winning the Americas Cup way-back-when (wink)

Also, they supply the planet with nightclub bouncers, these are the facts.

Bahahahaha

The good ole Gallagher electric fence unit was repurposed huh. Those things give out a nasty bite though - growing up on a dairy farm I have had more than my fair share of shocks from them

One night a group of boys decided to pee on an electric fence... needless to say they all got a rather painful surprise.. Boys are so stupid sometimes.. Nope I did not participate and by the screams I was glad I didn't !

Yes I had a friend who was very drunk at an outdoor festival he woke from his drunken stupor while peeing on an electric fence about a kilometer from the party.

Yeah I know mate. I got tangled up in one with a whipper snipper once on a dairy farm. Shut me and the machine down real quick.

Foggy cold morning. Found it testing to light up a fag after that.

kind regards,

Actually, bungee jumping was created by the Pentecost island people (pre World War II), A.J Hackett (a newzealander) was just the one to commercialize it in 1989.

Yes good point but I think their bungy cord was not of the elastic kind.

That's only the wealthy who can go to another country for treatment. The Rast of us wait and probably end up on sickness benefit while waiting.
