Path of least resistance.

I worked with a guy at my first metal fab job in Seattle that majored in sculpture at UW. He told me of the time he was working on a large piece outdoors in the yard where students could work on large projects. It was 20-25 in length. He hooked his buzz box at one end and tacked the corner. He moved to the other joint without moving the ground lead. He moved further away, and was then standing on damp grass. Suddenly, pow! Said he saw stars. When he came to he realized he'd wet his pants.
