Have you ever thought about all the different ways you could electrocute yourself in the time it takes for you to walk between the kitchen and your bedroom? Probably not, but after you see this, you'll definitely start.

If you really want to make yourself cower in a rubber-walled room in an alternate dimension where Ben Franklin never discovered electricity, check out the illustrations from this creepy German book, which was written in 1931 by Stefan Jellinek. It's called Elektroschutz in 132 Bildern.

Thankfully, plumbing has improved since the 1930s, but electricity still moves through the circulatory system in the same way. Just to be safe, try not to hold onto two things that are plugged in at the same time.
