I was going to attach pictures of people killed trying to steal electricity, but they are not pleasant.

I have nothing against you; I just don't want to see anyone harmed.

What makes you think anyone has been or will be harmed by this video? there are faaaaaaaaar more dangerous videos on youtube than this, why don't you get on your high horse and ride off and report all of them.

The guy is showing a scientific fact about deionised water, if some idiot tries this with normal water they will get hurt. If some parent allows their child to play with electricity and water, then it is the parents fault if the child is hurt, not the guy who posted this video.

You have made your point quite a few times in this thread, please do NOT keep posting with the same comments ok.

Andy, have a little faith in humanity. Despite what you may think, the vast majority of people arent dumb enough to purposely try something like frying themselves.

Good point; I just don't want it on my conscience and to just say 'it is the parents fault' doesn't feel right to me.

Even if it is one in a million who decides to give it a try, I'd like to think it wasn't my fault.

Look up pictures of people electrocuted while trying to steal electricity... unfortunately there are many; and then
there was Electroboom

Yes, I did quote electro-boom above; quite the goofball, but he knows his stuff.

There is also an interview where he confesses he would have killed himself were it not that the wires were weak.

I believe that proves my point.

I humbly request the moderators remove this thread.
You claim that this is an issue of morality yet you have not you do not demonstrate an iota of it when it comes denying the rights of others.

Rights to post dangerous content is not really a right.

However, this content isn't really dangerous in the conventional sense as there's a point where you'd have to be such a moron to try it, you were going to hurt yourself one way or another eventually, with or without assistance.

This crosses that threshold. Quit worrying.

Andy, I am a welder, accident/incident investigator, safety officer, safety trainer, and radio technician. I can appreciate your concern, but I watched a bunch of videos with my son this morning showing extremely dangerous "for science" projects. Molten metal flung from a bar of steel, flame thrower web shooter, molten metal poured onto glass, exploding closed aerosol cans with an extention cord, etc, etc. There is science, then there are these vids.

DI water expositions don't compare to backyard scientist. You can take that from a professional shocker.

I disagree the video isn't dangerous just that there is an inherent danger involved with the subject matter. So really the perceived danger here his subjective. This type of content is far removed from objectively dangerous content like "hey, here's how you build a bomb with common household items," "let's synthesize cyanide and best ways to use it on people," "convert a semi-auto firearm into full auto" or "How to build a meth lab anywhere."

Is this discussion we're having dangerous? Because he's asking for this thread to be taken down.

I didn't say otherwise.

This thread should be about Deionised waters use and application in PCs. Instead, here we are.

Not to anyone else but himself. If anyone else thinks that is a good idea, all I have to say is they have learn somehow. Policing such behavior is a waste of time and effort.

This is a great demonstration of a scientific principle, but it's done in a very cavalier way regarding safety. I cringed my way through this video and hope he doesn't do himslf a permanent injury one day. There are better ways to demonstrate these things.

The guy puts 220V on his tongue...
He doesn't, he's faking that bit. If he did, then he'd jump a mile and possibly be dead. Look carefully and you can see he's joking. Just touch a 9v battery to your tongue and see how painful that is. 220v on the tongue is way off the charts and will badly burn your tongue in an instant.

I've had 240v electric shocks to my hands before when I was a lad. It was extremely painful and my reaction to it was involuntary and violent, jumping backwards very suddenly. It took me some time to recover from it, too. After that, I vowed never to go near anything with high voltage again, eg open PSU while operating, open CRT monitors while operating etc and have so far avoided any further shocks, which could kill me nowadays. Heck, those things retain a charge too once switched off, so one still has to be careful even then.

I have fucked around with a lot of things in my life, but i have learnt not to fuck around with electricity. When i was a kid about 10 maybe, i was with a friend and we saw a street light with the cover off. For some reason i touched the wires/controller, it threw me about 6 feet, if i'd have grabbed it instead of touching with a finger, i'd have probably been killed.

But anyway, I am using Deionised water in my loop, that's why i posted the video, interesting to see proof of it not conducting electricity, but theres no way i'm trying this myself.

Distilled water/ionized dont conduct but after six months or so in a loop it conducts very well after stripping copper ect from rads and blocks and it can do it from day one with some colours.
some folks are worrying about the vid i see nothing wrong with it just saying.

even if water conducts electricity
i will need a whole lot of voltage to become deadly
as water has a high enough resistance, and your skin also has some resistance in it
it's not the voltage that kills you it's the current (amps) and you only need 250mA to kill yourself that's why if you're going to frig with electricity you keep your left hand away from it

Benchmark Scores not benching anymore...
it's not the voltage that kills you it's the current (amps) and you only need 250mA to kill yourself that's why if you're going to frig with electricity you keep your left hand away from it
if the voltage is high enough, the resistance is low enough
the current will be higher

and that will kill you
so everything has a correlation there

I agree the guy in the video is too happy go lucky and doesn't care to put enough warning to his viewers, but the drama around it in this thread is ridiculous. There are tons of videos about physics or chemistry that can be labeled as dangerous, are you going to hunt them down all of them?

Watercooling your pc has more or less the same risk as this video and there is a forum here dedicated to that, are you going to ask the moderation to close it?
