Why Doesn’t a Bird Get Electrocuted When Sitting On A Pole Wire

We all ask ourselves these questions when we look up at a power pole and see a bird. How come that bird isn’t being electrocuted, well the reason behind Our feathered friends and humans alike the bird just simply isn’t touching the ground.  If the bird was touching ground it would look more like a rotisserie chicken. Same thing with humans we just don’t have feathers and like to roost on power lines. In theory we would be able to do the same thing as long as we are not going to ground. 

Sometimes I wish I was a blue jay, my work would be a lot easier. Next time you see a bird on a power line, you will have a good story to tell your family or friends. Remember no climbing power poles and trying to roost on power lines unless you have feathers and a beak!

Why You Don’t Get Shocked In Salt Water

We all have heard stories in the past of somebody getting shocked do to water or even worse, electrical shock drowning which is a cause of death that occurs when a swimmer is exposed to electric currents in the water.

Have you ever took the time to think what would happen if you put a ton of salt in water? The truth of the matter is that you will not get shocked in salt water, as you may know water is a conductor but salt water is a good conductor, due to salt being made of molecules called sodium ions & chlorine ions. These ions are what carries electricity through water, therefore the current will take the path of least resistance and you will be safe of getting shocked when in salt water.
