back in the 60s [when i was a boy]i stuck one of mums knitting needles in the fire and got electrocuted [also got a clip off my dad] the needle was welded to the bar .Back then the fire had a 15 amp round pin plug on it [no fuse] The fire kept on working with the needle sticking out of it .My dad used to touch cigarettes on the bars to light them
