Let's get something straight here...I didn't lick the battery, I put my tongue on the + and - posts. (I assume you're talking about a 9V battery, like you use in toys). This was when I was a child, BTW.

Anyway, it was not, for me, a pleasant experience...and it won't happen again...unless someone decides to perform some recreational torture on me or something.

I'm sure there was a "dare" involved...older neighbor kid or something.

:rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: .... Boy, does this bring back memories. Yea, my brother and I 'did it' to see who could out last the other. Well, I did, but I had a very sore tongue for the next few days; and I talked real funny, too. I was trying not to use my tongue at all...........my dad laughed so hard he choked on his coffee when he heard about it. My mom just rolled her eyes and murmured something about 'shoud've had girls, instead'..............:D :D

Okay, confusion reigns supreme.

GOF, if you'll check the poll, you'll see that PeterJ has tried this. His response was in answer to a something he thought I said.

PeterJ, I wasn't saying that someone had dared you...I was saying I think that someone had probably dared me, and that's why I did it.

Clear as mud?

Yep, I used to do it quite a bit (and still do when I need to see if a battery's still good or not). Then again, back in high school one of my friends and I used to have contests to see who could hold on to the electric fence the longest... :rofl:

I was an electroholic in my model railroad days. I'd lick the ends of two fingers and press them against the "+" and "-" contacts on the back of the power-pack. Good times.

Peter, your odd questions never cease to amaze me, however, this time I had to admit I was, along with most, one of the wierd ones.

However, I was twelve years old at the time.

Yeahhhhh! Me too! See...I'm not the only dorkus here...there's plenty of us! :lol:

I like chicken!!! :pp I'm gonna have to try more!

A few weeks ago, when we were moving my mom, my brother says "hey...want a piece of gum?" and had a pack of gum in his hand. I thought it looked a little odd, but stupid me, force of habit, grabbed a hold of the stick and ...SHAAAAZAAAAAAAAAAM!!!... I got a nice jolt of electric :rolleyes:. He laughed his butt off saying "Isn't this great! I got this in Canada when I was over there on vacation!" The man is 53 years old and still messing with my head! Of course my sister just said "figures you fell for it" :rolleyes:

Hi, my name is Yod and I'm a volt-a-holic


It started out innocent enough....licking batteries at parties with all my friends but eventually I moved to the hard stuff; like car batteries and welding machines. Before long I was sneaking around stealing batteries out of radios to get my fix. I had become a shell of myself...unable to function without a few tasty volts.

I came out of the closet when I was college age. Heck, all the kids were doing it, ya know? But this uncontrolable urge had a social stigma which kept me from getting my dream job as an accordian repairman and I became homeless...searching through dumpters for a few more volts.

But one day I met JESUS and He gave me a full charge! Now I no longer crave the forbidden fruits of a 9 volt battery! I can actually hold one without lusting for it!



Alas, by God's grace I hope to overcome it for the rest of my life....

I not only have done it, but have done it in church!!! My guitar pick-up uses one and it's the easiest way to check it.

I had a co-worker that used to wake himself up on long nights by zapping his finger or had with a hand held stun gun. That takes more guts than brains.

Wow, your brother sounds like a kick back kind of dude. Break out the warm root beer, cold pizza and a hot four pack of batteries. After a few shocks, the root beer and pizza taste real good. But, a word of warning here, and y'all listen real close. Do not, ever, ever pour the warm root beer over the battery posts and then lick it real quick. This will produce a larger, quicker shock. These are known as 'Battery Lickers' and those so addicted to them are known as " -ick hea-s " for the weird speech patterns and deform tongues and lips. Please avoid them at all costs.

:rofl: You have no idea what my family is like...you have my sister on one side and my brother on the other and there is no hope! :lol:. He was even will to let me borrow his precious shocking pack of gum so I could use it on my hubby but since hubby doesn't come home until Oct I didn't want him to go that long without it :lol:.

I think Coke would give a much better shock! Although it might take the silver right off the battery!

:hmm:...heyyyyyy...we have room at our recovery program for battery lickers! We will do a battery check at the door to make sure no one is sneaking them in and going to the bathroom to get their quick fix. :D

No not dangerous. But in Australia we test car batteries that way which can be deadly especially if you get sulphuric acid on your tongue:lol:

At last, a family after my own heart. I actually tried that, and the shock was greater than I expected. Guess that tells you how much of a scientist I was at about eleven years of age....:rofl: :rofl: I had a severly burned tongue, and lips for weeks. Funny thing, my dad could not stop laughing every time he saw his poor lacerated son..........sniff sniff.

However, on a more serious note we have to be aware that discomfort seems to be one of the devil's most subtle weapons of seduction. It offers a surge of feeling that, in the beginning stages, is almost intoxicating.

Sure, it's a good way of testing the 9V battries to see how much juice they have left in them. Once when I was little I put a bobby pin in a wall outlet, shocking! Another time I tried to unplug an electrical cord from an outlet but my fingers were too small and as I was pulling it out they touched the metal conductors of the plug. Dumb!
