Quote:You are right In the sense that you need some voltage to have amps. Hence, the first statement of the saying, "it's not the volts that kill" should be changed to "it's not necessarily the volts that kill" to convey the intended points of the saying. However, since amps are, by definition, defined as volts/ohms, the second part of the saying, the "amps are what kills" is correct. Have the proper voltage-resistance ratio, i.e 10 milliamps of current through the heart, and it will result in the same thing despite the many different combos of voltage and resistance values there are that result in 10 milliamps.
In the case of the taser vs. CRT monitor drivel you spewed, the taser has low amps precisely because it has both high resistance and voltage. In the finger under here=dead video, Resistance is far lower while voltage is also very high; that means higher amps. This is, again, derived by using the equation. Amps=Volts/Ohms
