A New Hampshire high school student shocked so severely in shop class that his heart stopped beating is suing his teacher, the school district and the city of Dover.
Kyle Dubois and his parents claim teacher Thomas Kelley did not warn Dubois and other students of the dangers of the electrical demonstration cords in their electrical trades class.
On March 11, Dubois attached an electrical clamp to one nipple while another student attached another clamp to the other. A third student plugged in the cord.
Attaching electrical cords to your nipples and plugging them in is stupid. Blaming someone else for your having done so is similarly stupid, and should carry the same penalty. If I were the judge in this case, my ruling would be: zap him again. I'm sure there are penumbras formed by emanations somewhere I could use to justify it.
My fiancee noticed this:
