5V is nothing. I popped the back off a cold cathode inverter attached the a 5V power supply line and grabbed (I don't know why, I'm guessing I forgot it was plugged in) and it shocked the crap out of me, but not enough to move me or even leave a mark.

This guy is just a fat butthole. (and yes, fat is relevant, how many skinny successful nice folks sue for something like this?)

Well, it would have been 220volts most likely or whatever the European standard voltage is, but a million volts wouldn't throw a person across a room. In order to apply force to object...you have to have either insane amounts of energy or mass and not even the massive energy given off by the sun is pushing things away all that hard. Take a lightning strike. If you get hit by lighting...you don't go flying through the air. It isn't Thor's Hammer crashing down. Trees may explode due to water instantly boiling, but that is it and where the myth likely came from. If the guy moved at all it was due to his own reflexes kicking in after he was no longer being shocked.

We have gigawatt lasers and they will just heat things up...they don't send objects flying. So yeah...this story is a sham from some one hoping for a settlement outside of court.
