The uncontrolled flow of continuous electric
current over the earth, building steel, metallic piping, etc. has
become a serious problem that lacks recognition by the
greater part of the electrical industry. The resulting electric
shocks appear to be of little concern to the majority of the
electric utilities, electrical engineers or the public. However,
with the advent of sensitive computers and electronic
equipment, the problem will continue to grow. The recognition
of electrical hazards associated with trailers, marinas and now
ranges and dryers being wired with only three wires, has
brought changes to the National Electrical Code. No longer
can a single conductor serve as a neutral and ground. Due to
electric shocks to humans in swimming pools and showers,
this logic needs to be extended to the services to residences,
commercial establishments and industries to protect
occupants from potentially hazardous electrical shocks.

Uncontrolled Flow of Continuous Electrical Current – In
this paper the uncontrolled flow of continuous electric current
is the flow of continuous electric current over the earth,
building steel, metallic piping, etc. from the multiple
connections of the neutral conductor to earth or ground or
from the interconnection of neutrals from different electrical
systems, which have multiple connections to earth or ground.
The uncontrolled flow of continuous electric current over
the earth has become a serious problem that lacks recognition
by the greater part of the electrical industry. What has started
out as a problem for farmers and their cows failure to drop
their milk, due to electrical shocks, has now spread to humans
who are receiving electric shocks in swimming pools and
The flow of uncontrolled current over the earth appears to
be of little concern to the majority of the utilities, electrical
engineers or the public defenders. However, with
the advent of computers and other sensitive electronic
equipment, operating on lower and lower voltages, they are
becoming sensitive to noise and stray current generated

Mind sharing what you know? Or are you advertising something?

It depends also on whether you are shocked by AC or DC. AC will push you away, due to the switching of polarity, thereby making muscles contract and expand with the current.

You know whats great is people that think you can be shocked by a car battery. I used to work at an auto store and would freak people out by grabbing both terminals and act like I'm convulsing. But in reality the voltage is too low on a car battery to do anything. However they produce hundreds of amps of current which if you were to lay a wrench across the terminals will weld it to the terminals and make the battery explode. A car's ignition system is around 50,000 volts but very very minute amperage.
