    I thought why not count how many times I get electrocuted over the year.
    I will update post # 1 If I can over the year. An Indication how many times I get shocked and from what. :D

    Just making a comment:

    Electrocution is like drowning. You can only do it once.

    You can be zapped multiple times, but electrocution means death by electrical shock ;):p

    I was shocked this morning so many times I lost count. It must have been at least 50 times. True!











    I had an EMG. :)

    If it doesnt create a significant emotional event, it fades from memory quickly.

    Ok. Enough of the smart a***es. An EMG is Electromyography. It is a test for muscle function. The test sends a mild (only in the Dr's opinion) current through the muscles and measures the electrical activity gererated.

    I've been unfortunate to have required the test many times. It's like torture by electrical shock!

    EMG is not like touching a single phase live or a Magnetron terminal when powered up.

    EMG and Donut. !! You guys eat too much fast food.

    I think an E M G is an Electromyogram , but I do not know what the test is for .

    I have heard the term used , possibly at the Heart Institute where I had two stents installed a few years ago .
