What a dumb guys, both the people in the pool and on this forum. I am afraid that this is real, looking at the wooden support part they attached to the plug and the slippers. The worst thing is, they are probably thinking THEY are smart. Besides the all the semi so called intelligent remarks on electricity, I think its clear to everyone that if a power cord with 240V falls into water despite of any breaker you WILL get a flash of 240 through your dumb ass (it will close circuit). Ever touched those threads in a farmfield? And did you wear rubber soles?

why didn't they just run a line up over the pool? or cook right at the edge of the pool?
2008-12-09 14:28:28
it wouldnt need to be grounded. have you ever heard of a short?
2008-05-15 19:00:04
LOL, ingenious stage. I see that many had trapped into the thought it's actually PLUGGED to any electricity source at all....
2008-04-09 05:51:06
Its staged lol they just do it for shits and giggles in some pictures they are tuning the plug bar upside down and pouring the water out of it.
2008-03-05 11:35:09
I'm not 100% convinced. Water itself is an excellent sink for electricity. It itself could act as a ground here. Therefore, if you're anywhere near the plug, you could get electricity passing through you to spread out through the rest of the water.

Which probably is intended to mean they are great engineers and know perfectly well what they do.
2008-01-14 04:33:09
It just take someone standing outside the pool to pee into the pool to complete the circuit. :)

i believe he was making a joke. lighten up a tad.
2008-01-13 00:27:08
So, if there is at least one drop of water going out of the pool, they die :p But I guess those guys would never have done it for real.
2008-01-12 20:49:22
This is a setup... I can't believe someone can be so retarded. This must be a joke!

this rubber pool will not save these idiots from becoming redneck soup. rubber is not a reliable insulator.
2008-01-11 01:10:08
We use 120v. Those plugs are clearly 240v. If they are Americans they are NOT in United States of America.
2008-01-10 22:21:47
They are clearly americans. Fools.
2008-01-10 01:44:05
are they still alive, these guys?
2008-01-09 06:26:48
Yes the are in a PVC/Plastic pool and yes a tub the was is generaly ground throught the copper tubing. BUT!!!!!!! the Water will conduct electricity between the terminals of the strip plug the is floating. Porbably will blow the breaker before the possiblily or electricution but it is still possible for the water itself to be electrified and all it would take is one person outside the pool to put an arm in and the show would be over.

so sad that in some countrys, public eduction is so bad...

I doubt it's actually plugged in. But if it is, it's still a stupid idea. Though they may not be grounded, it only takes a fraction of a second before the circuit is complete. If you notice in the photo, the guy closest to the grill is pulling the wall of the pool dangerously close to the water. If he were to pull it a little further down to cause the water to pour out of the pool... well, let's just say that's when Darwin will kick in!
2008-01-08 12:40:00
They seem to have the outlets out of the water, and there may be a GFI but this is not a smart idea. The pool water in the pool may not be grounded, but the first one to have one foot it the pool and one on the ground will complete the circuit.
2008-01-08 06:10:46
too funny! :P no use discussing physics... just lol
2008-01-08 02:48:01
IF their electrics are functioning wel, what I think they are seen as it's a pretty fool proof system, they don't have to worry about a thing even if the bath is grounded.
2008-01-08 01:37:31
Isn't there a grounding connection on the pug and on the surge protector? So if the pug and/or surge protector touch the water wouldn't that be enough to charge the water? I honestly don't know but that is how I understand this to work.
2008-01-08 00:32:16
You are right. It is the internet. Why don't you use it for something smart like LEARNING ABOUT ELECTRICITY, instead of leaving caustic comments. I am at least trying to correct people's ignorant views. Your name fits you well. You must be the product of fine public school education.
2008-01-08 00:24:23
Jr. High and Ummmm...ok are right. wyldwyll your only experience with electricity is obviously only changing a light bulb and flipping a light switch. The laws of electricity are few and basic and anyone who spent over 10 min to learn about it could tell you that. "People fear what they do not understand", You must fear everything wyldwyll.

Water is a conductor
2008-01-07 13:39:46
finally, someone who knows what they're taking about. Remember when only smart people owned computers? I miss those days.
2008-01-07 13:38:30
Nobody believes you because this is the internet.
2008-01-07 13:26:30
Darwin's law: stupid people do stupid things, doing stupid things will cause people to die...therefore stupid people will die as part of natural selection.

Vuntz I had a kendy store Bizniss was so bad I asked mine vife what to do and dis is vat she said: Take yourself some Kerosene pour it on de floor Take a match, give a scratch No more kendy store! HEY!

Hey, Jr High School student, you're dumber than a fifth grader! why don't you get your kiddie pool out and try it, the world is too full of idiots already! "The trouble ain't that there is too many fools, but that the lightning ain't distributed right." ~ Mark Twain

LOL... this is simple electric engineering. These guys know what their doing (they must! this was a linux convention!) The water is not grounded being in a PVC pool and that is not mains voltage going in! I'd assume they'd be using 240v -> 24v outdoor transformer (voltage goes down, current goes up - grill still works) which would also have a power guard so as soon as there was even a little earthage it'd pop. A few splashes of water would not be enough to short 24v, submerge it and it'd pop the breaker though.

I never thought to put a table in a pool. That alone is genius to me.
2008-01-07 07:43:34
You all obviously don't know JACK about electricity. As long as the water is not grounded or anything in contact with the water is not grounded they are perfectly safe. This would not work in something with metal plumbing such as a bathtub because the drain would ground the water but they are in a RUBBER inflatable pool. As long as they don't touch anything out side of the pool that is grounded while still in contact with the pool water they are safe. Even if they did ground the water I am sure a circuit breaker would trip preventing anything fatal.

Funny picture, but that thing is probably not plugged in, you know...
2008-01-07 04:47:35
shouldn't that be murphy's law, not darwin's? meaning that if anything can gowrong it will.
2008-01-07 02:41:27
12V or 24V for electric grill? Please....
2008-01-07 02:36:37
12 v or 24 v
2008-01-07 02:20:07
i'm speechless, darwins law failed! these guys should be so dead after a stroke of genius like this
2008-01-07 02:10:50
:D:D:D:D:D:D:D this is toooooo ... :D:D:D damn^^
2008-01-07 02:03:55
pure genius
2008-01-07 01:35:38
Are they managed to survive after this?
