    Where he hit a power pole. Then urinated in the ditch near the power line that likely fell when HE hit the power pole. Natural selection.

    According to Myth Busters this is not possible. Urine stream is a rapid series of drops, not a steady stream and will not conduct electricity.

    Probably not that far of a reach to think that he may have had some lingering affects which messed with his reasoning?

    Now if he was drunk, that's a whole other story.

    Either Myth Busters was wrong or that dude had to make direct contact with the live power line with that particular part of the body. That would be one messed up fetish.

    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.
