  current kills, not voltage ;)

  Yeah, but current is proportional to voltage for a fairly fixed resistor like a human. And voltage hurts, whether there's much current behind it or not.

  Actually, voltage kills too. According to Ohms law, voltage is inversely proportionate to current. Current is induced, meaning that only enough will flow as the resistance will allow and the voltage will push. Thus high resistance and low voltage = low current. 120 volts will kill or just really hurt _depending on where it touches you._ Your hands have the thickest skin in your body, thus 120 volts usually just tingles if you touch it. 4160 volts, on the other hand, is enough to easily overcome the resistance of your body and send all kinds of current through you, killing you.

And now you know :)

  This is a 3 phase medium voltage power line.STAY FAR FAR AWAY FROM IT JUST incase it decides to BLOW UP
