Well at least there is proof that this idea started with the statement "here hold my beer...." LOL

Also I believe the word idiot in the title should be plural as there are 3 idiots in that picture.

Yeah, I bet the picture was staged and there was no live electricity. If it is real, then this is a great example of how natural selection works.

I think from the shape of the outlet it's a non-us electrical system.

According to mythbusters you will be dead without a gfi protected hairdryer falling into the tub idiots................

With or without a GFI you'd still be in trouble... a GFI will detect a shock is happening and stop it, but by then it's -still- happening. You may escape with your life, you may be fine, you may have muscle damage, or it could fail and leave them still in a bad place...

But then again I alway have wanted pancakes & beer while swimming....

An electrician would tell you that they're actually pretty safe. The kneejerk "water + electricity = death" response often isn't based in reality.

So they're either dumb, or electricians. It might be a little of both.
