Russia is waging a disgraceful war on Ukraine. Stand With Ukraine!

Старушка (Starushka) (traduction en anglais)

Старушка

Недолго мучилась старушка
В высоковольтных проводах.
Ее обугленная тушка
На птичек наводила страх.

A Grandma

When grandma touched high-voltage wires,
She didn't suffer very long.
Just her charred carcass would inspire
A fear in small birds all along.

I realize that pressing "Thanks"
is really hard for most of you, yet
you should keep on trying...

Только не смейтесь
А чтобы get electrocuted, do you need to touch a live (kinda) chain? Like + and - connected? Or just + or - will do?

Electrocution is caused by a strong electric current (measured in Amperes). To create a current a circuit between points with different voltage potentials (not necessarily just between + and -) must be closed. Human body is a low resistance conductor, therefore it creates a circuit between a live wire and ground. So, unless you hang in the air when touching live wires or wear insulating shoes, you will be electrocuted by high voltage.

This is why I failed МГУ
I just don't comprehend voltage potentials
