Watt A Shocker!

Want FREE electricity from Con Edison? To get a personal volt-jolt, simply touch the right (or wrong, depending on how you look at it) Con Ed-managed light pole, electric switching box, manhole cover or other equipment. Some of them leak electricity! In fact, this can occur in roughly three quarters of a million places in New York City. According to Con Ed, 295 people "made the connection" in 2007. But before you make plans to turn yourself into a power user, remember this. Con-Ed's loose-juice can be powerful enough to kill and regrettably has before. So be careful out there. Don’t turn yourself into another "light on Broadway."
