Top new questions this week:

Is this true: "At over 700 Hz, current simply flows over your body"?

I have heard this in a movie clip. I was just curious to know, is this really true? Because the one thing that I do know, is that at a high voltage, the current decreases, so that it doesn't harm a ...

Greatest hits from previous weeks:

How much voltage is "dangerous"?

Related: Safe current limit for human contact? From what I've heard: 110 V (or 220 V; household voltage pretty much) is dangerous (i.e. can kill you) I think there's consensus on this, no ...
