I was about 14 years old and we were detasseling corn
at the end of the field was an electric fence. I said all you
guys grab hands and I will grab the electric fence, one guy
on the end says you guys won't feel a thing when he grabs
the fence because he will get the jolt but when I grabbed the
fence big mouth on the end was doing his dance he was the
only one to get the shock! His arm and shoulder hurt for a
couple of days.
Back in the 50's a delivery guy delivered to the framers and
at this one farm their dog would always pee on his tires so
he got an old model T coil and attached it to his truck when
he came to the farm dog came running out lifted its leg and
left out a yelp and off he went and when ever he came to the
farm the dog was no where to been seen.

I got smacked in the face with a limb last year. I was on my father-in-law's Allis 170 bush hogging paying good attention to a hole that I did not want to get a tire in. Then everything went black for a little bit. About a 2" branch got hung up on the exhaust stack as I was creeping forward, when it slung off it hit me right on the bridge of the nose. Strangely there was no bruise or blood. But it hurt something terrible.

I hate bush hogging. I got one as part of the deal on my first tractor. Used it a half dozen times and traded it in when I bought my second tractor. It must be the second most dangerous attachment after a post hole digger.
