Good thing you can't read my mind.

For a real person death, I strongly doubt that the "F to pay respects" would be appropriate.
at the risk of sounding completely ignorant.....and I'm going to just use a random example here.....I understand the concept of viewers sending "F" when Doom Guy gets killed by the demons when someone is live streaming it sort of thing....but where or how did that practice start? like what originated that whole "thing" of "F" for paying respects to death in game?

My entire left eyebrow did get sent up a good 3 mm I believe. This is just laughable news, people get shocked everywhere but BTC made it end up here for some reason.



Yes , it does. We just fail to capture it in legislation. Its abuse at the expense of others, plain and simple. Ask future generations how they feel given the current climate issues.

There I said it. Live and let live goes both ways. Mining is greed. Cant explain it any other way, sorry.. in 2014 perhaps, but now? No.
Just because he offends your sensibilities by mining he deserves to die. There are far worse things in life than upsetting some neckbeard by depriving him of a new GPU. How exactly is it wrong to mine? he spent lots of, seemingly, his own money buy the 20 GPUs to speculate with the possibility of making some money, not really much worse than a lot of other ways to make a crust now. I would mine if i had the means, I am sure fair few of the frowners would too, though I doubt they would admit it.

Greed is the driving force of todays society now, get used to it.

See that's where we disagree and why you say what you say.

Meanwhile, no worries, to each their own, but its not 'offending my sensibilities'. Its offending common sense to let greed 'drive' a society, casually agreeing with it, and then it gets utterly ridiculous if you think there is a moral high ground in saying 'everyone wastes stuff so this is fine'.. You're not and he's not - its waste for the singular purpose of trying to get rich. No value is created anywhere. A core issue that feeds crypto and negates its purpose to begin with.

And hey, its not like I'm saying kill all the miners, but if shit happens, shit happens. No reason to feel sorry for anyone here, its completely misplaced to me, and mostly serves to pat yourself on the back 'look how nice I am'.

As for 'driving force'... I call it a human condition and it creates more problems than it solves, as we can see the world over. Sometimes, enough is enough.

Household 110/230V will kill you just the same as 110kV, it will just take more time, which is a false sense of security since your muscles will contract and you will involuntarily hold on to whatever shocks you until you die. Respect things which can kill you.

Thank you now I know a little more what's happening.

When you fight try to release yourself, you can't, your body is completely locked. My muscle feel like they are hardening, getting very stiff because the naturally thing to do is pull away, no don't do that, it's stiffening the muscles even more & it's going to take longer for you to get them back into a relaxed state. ..I do know when most of you body muscles is stiff or locked you begin to feel or hear your heart slowing down. I'm not sure which one, but something is happening to your heart.

Even thou I'm under continuous shock, I'm not even aware if I'm actually breathing, I have no sense of this. The last time I was under continuous shocked, it took longer for me to release myself. That was around 3-4 years ago. (dodge grey import TV)

I've been shock many times with my body completely frozen, mostly accidently, but I'm not going to say what the other are because it's very dangerous & I don't want anyone to copy what I did.

The only thing I can say to anyone who get's continuous shock from mains voltage, if you feel like your muscles are stiffening your going in the wrong direction.

They refer to GPU's as hard drives a few times... you're telling me in all this crypto craze no one there caught it?

Also an explosion and an electrocution, must have been some kind of nuclear mining rig.

I also only see it in a few tabloid esque UK sites and not being reported anywhere else (one that is written like a hit piece calling him a "GREEDY" person in capital letters). I'm hesitant to believe this actually happened.

His profile isn't that hard to search up on Facebook.........plenty of Thai people presumably people he knew (judging from the messages) posted condolences on his profile. I don't see why 20+ people who knew him would be somehow all involved in some fake news conspiracy, I trust that neither would they be getting their information from the Daily Mail. Some of those messages are pretty sad, hard to believe it was just a few days ago.

From his insta looks like man really was pretty deep into mining. Unfortunate it had to end like that.

{...)
Yes, even if you consciously know what's happening it's almost impossible to react in any way other than try to relax your muscles and hope you fall down away from danger and not down the stairs. That's why electricians working in high-risk environments always work in pairs.
The main idea is AC makes muscles violently contract, high frequency AC, like 400Hz used in aviation, makes them palpitate but not contract and high voltage DC makes them extend - which seems like a good thing, but DC voltage high enough to penetrate the skin usually has enough current behind it to boil you alive, remember that humans are bags of mostly water.

Yeah, I'm just gonna drop this here and let you think:


Yes it's "bitcoinmagazine" but the facts behind it are well researched and do make you think about how it's not really an issue at all.

Anyways: what you just said is legit awful. No other way to put it. And I knew there was gonna be at least one. Sad you had to prove me right.

Good thing you can't read my mind.
God almighty, just stop people. I wanted to be wrong. I knew I wouldn't be for long, but heck, I wanted to be. Leave the genocidal rage thoughts at the door when you come here please.

@Thread,
This was not a death from bitcoin mining. This was a death from an accidental electrocution. The title of this thread is misleading to say the least and so is most of the hoopla about it.

People need to learn how to context better.

Yes that's right. In most cases you will be standing or in a crouched position. So when you relax your muscles, your hand/arm will slides off the apparatus or your body will fall towards the floor. You don't have control of which direction you are going to fall, that I know, but if you are already leaning over in a certain direction, then that's the direction you will fall when released from a frozen state. Gravity is playing a big part in me escaping. from a frozen state.

If I was lying flat on my back with both arms touch each apparatus at ground level, then there is no escape, no matter how much you attempt to relax your muscles, because I think most of it is gravity assisted.

I don't think it is fake news. MSN has picked up the story now. Here's a pic of his mining rig. It looks like it's drawing a lot of power to me but I really don't know anything about these mining rigs.

When I forgot to break the circuit, I didn't kill myself, but my screwdriver never picked up any magnetic metal after that incident.

It's my least favorite part of any job. And I've been trained to do it!

I'm really just wondering what he did... how he had it set up to where he touched something and got a lethal combination of voltage and current. The mains are the easy assumption. He had to have messed with the power arrangement. Perhaps there was a fault that energized one of the frames? I don't really know how these things are typically assembled, so it's even harder for me to speculate on what corners got cut. Grounding issues come to mind. Lots of big pieces of exposed metal in proximity to all of these wires packed in with fans and power strips everywhere....

I really wish they would be more clear on what actually happened, you know? As said above, crypto didn't kill him, an electrical fault in his rig did. Where was the fault? That's probably the most important piece of information in the story. And nobody seems to have it.

Like... 'don't do crypto' doesn't necessarily protect a person in this instance. Knowing how the fault that killed this guy, did, might at least save a life.

Truth. I was very careful running my 240V lines for my brief comparison series I did of 240V vs 120V on my mining articles (240V 20amp like that can kick HARD). The lines are now an interesting story in the garage that don't do much of anything, but I digress...

interesting thing is, even a 12v car battery can kill you in the right circumstances, they have 300+ Amps

Truth. I was very careful running my 240V lines for my brief comparison series I did of 240V vs 120V on my mining articles (240V 20amp like that can kick HARD). The lines are now an interesting story in the garage that don't do much of anything, but I digress...
Did you do that for giggles or was there a science methodology behind the effort?

interesting thing is, even a 12v car battery can kill you in the right circumstances, they have 300+ Amps
Also true.
