    I've gotten bit by 120vac from an outlet that had two different fused circuits in the same receptacle, it's not a big deal but will certainly get your attention.

    It's the amps that matter, unless you're talking about 220vac or 440vac. 220 will kill a person with a bad heart or poor health, 440 will kill everyone.

    I should mention, ya don't ever want to short out a 12vdc car battery, etc. That 600-800 amp rating will fuck you up.
    Never done it personally, but my old elec engineering profs used to talk about charging up capacitors and throwing them to a friend.

    Small circuit board capacitors will certainly pack a pretty good bite, but don't try that with 220vac start/run capacitors like found in an air conditioning unit. Probably won't be able to do it twice!
