This Book From 1931 Shows 30 Ways You Could Die From Electrocution

Published 2 years ago

Have you ever gotten zapped by a worn out phone charger or extension cord? Turns out getting electrocuted isn’t such a modern problem – someone even released a book showing all the ways you could die from it all the way back in 1931.

The book is called Elektroschutz in 132 Bildern, which translates to Electrical Protection in 132 Pictures. As you could probably guess, it shows 132 ways you can get electrocuted and the illustrations are both hilarious and brutal. We’re sure you’ll be glad most of these technologies are a thing of the past nowadays.

Check out all the ways you could have been electrocuted back in 1931 in the gallery below!

Aušrys Uptas

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
