Went to an extended family gathering once on a farm. They had an electric cow fence and I was sooooo curious to touch it (we were kids, there was lots of “Dare you! Dare you! Dare you to lick it!”) but they’d obviously turned it off for the afternoon…I’m still really curious though.

Please GO VOTE in this week’s Shirt Woot derby: Love. Today is the last day and I have one design in the fog! I’m kind of surprised that the DOG version is doing better than the CAT one, it’s usually the other way around??

    ahh… so it was God (a God?) that gave Death his cursed powers…
    Oh dear. . . Death’s sister~ :(

  2. T-Shaw

    Lightning and touching the electric fence turned him into…Electro?
    Just Kidding!
    Really interesting on how he got his powers.

  3. Mr. Casual

    This is a back-in-the-day superhero origin story, right here. “I was struck by lightning and got these powers!”

  4. Sperkle

    Yeah…. They suck…. And hurt.

  5. Murphy

    Ooooh! so he got his powers ala Barry allen style.

    struck by lightning, but instead of speed death gets electric manipulation and turning into an electric wraith!

  6. Aldin

    Shocking past. Who knew?

  7. Todd Maccarone

    So, that’s where the powers came from… Might also be how he loses his family. Really hope I’m wrong, but… I doubt it.

    What psychotic idiot goes chasing after a bear in a thunderstorm? Does he love his garbage cans so much that his rage demands extermination in the face of conflagration? Come on. Humans are too lazy for that kind of nonsense.

    Awww.. Poor wee Death.

    Holy moley! Baby Death should be d-e-a-d! What a combo…wet+electric fence+lightning!

    @Alison: I touched an electric fence once when I was in my teens once. Didn’t know it was electrified and it must’ve been really low voltage because I didn’t realize it was live until my arm just kind of went numb.

    There was a great big FLASH
    Everything was changed
    His molecules got all rearranged!

    Baby Death is so adorable, just let him enjoy his bread scraps you monsters ;-;

    Well, just getting electrocuted is pretty bad but would be quite tame by Bear Nuts origin story standards so I’m waiting for the other shoe to drop :/

    electric fences don’t give a huge jolt, just enough to make a cow know “do this and feel unpleasant”. Being cows, they back off pretty quick… usually. My grandfather was a dairy farmer and had couple cows who seemed to enjoy the buzz.

    If you’re not wearing shoes or some other form of low-conductance material, it hurts a bit more, but again, not so much that you can’t recover in less than a minute.

    I touched one once and it felt like I got hit in the back of the head with a metal pan. I didn’t know it was electric I was trying to touch a cow

  15. Plethora

    Does Death have electric powers, then?

    So, I once bent over a little fence to pet some baby goats, and brushed against the electric fence…and as I hit the ground behind me, I wondered who had hit me in the chest with a 2×4, and why. That’s what it feels like.
