Great way to kill someone!
That's not even funny, and I rarely say that.

I can only hope that was a GFCI protected circuit so the most he could get was 1/60th of a second or so. Judging from the general idiocy of that prank though, probably not.

And even if they did, still not worth betting someone's life on a $5 GFCI just for a prank.

I saw a video once of a guy breaking a 4ft flourescant tube on his friends bare back. Glass shards and blood all across his back, the white dust (cant remeber what its called); looked pretty painful, just as this does. This is a very bad idea for a prank.

I hope that video was faked, but even so I'm afraid there will be idiots who see it and decide to copy that moronic "practical joke".

That white dust contains toxic levels of mercury. It's not a good idea to be rubbing it into open cuts.

Before there were Light Sabers we used flourescent tubes. The fights were pretty short, though.

And if you're out of table salt, phosphors from the tubes will do just fine.
