Have you ever done this? I thought everyone had tried it to feel the shock at some point, but my wife swears she has not. I was shocked. (pun intended)
Link Posted: 2/13/2013 5:01:05 PM EDT
Nope.
I don't have a reason to do that

Of course. That's how you tell if they are good, or not.
Link Posted: 2/13/2013 5:02:07 PM EDT
It's how I test them without a meter handy.

a good indicator if it still has charge, also works on coin batts.
Link Posted: 2/13/2013 5:03:18 PM EDT
How else do you tell if they are good?

Saliva is a fairly decent electrolyte. She needs to give it a shot! IIRC, it has a somewhat sour sensation.

Best way I know of to see if it is a good hot battery or not.

Leaves a metallic taste.

Bridge the contacts with a .22lr round.



Seriously though...you really don't want to do that.

Nope. Never even occurred to me to lick such a thing.

What would happen if someone were to pin someone down, pry their mouth open, and forcefully hold down a 9v on their tongue in such a way, that the victim could not "unlick" the battery? Would it eventually "cook" the tongue?

Tastes like chewing on aluminum foil.

Easiest way to see if it still has a charge...

Funny story my orthodontist said she had never heard one like it before. In middle school I had braces and I stuck the battery to them and it would spark. I was amazed. I did it again and it melted the little rubber hootuses off. Wish I had a video of it.

Probably not. Still too much resistance.

PSA:

Do not ever accidentally place a good 9V battery and a rag with goof off soaked thru in the same pocket.

When you discover your error at 40 mph on a busy road, you will have many new enemies.

We were poor.

Licking a battery was the next best thing to candy.

There's a joke in there somewhere.

It works on other pink parts too.

Just sayin'
Link Posted: 2/13/2013 5:13:38 PM EDT
Not recently, but I've done this from time to time as a kid.


Might explain why I am the way I am at times...

You say "girl" thing I say "not stupid" thing...

Of course. Your tongue is the only 9 V battery tester that's always around when you need one.

Cousin talked me into it when we were kids.... Jerk

Fuck yeah.

Anyone who hasn't been dared to do it has no friends, or enemies.

My wife would agree with you, but I would ask why this is "stupid"? You feel a coffee cup to see if it is hot. How is this different?

That's how I test to see if the battery has a sufficient charge. I thought everyone put a 9v to their tongue to check the charge??? Back in the 60's, that was the only way to tell if a 9v had sufficient charge to run my guitar pedals. I still do it with the batteries in my smoke detectors.
Link Posted: 2/13/2013 5:21:23 PM EDT
Once upon a time (early 80s) a hell of a lot of neat stuff ran on 9v batteries. We were always running out of them so we had to have ways of checking to see if they were any good.

Does anything really use 9v batteries anymore?

Feel it, yes pour scalding coffee down my throat, no.
Nerves on your hand are not as sensitive as your mouth.

Link Posted: 2/13/2013 5:25:46 PM EDT
I used to do it work to see if the batteries were good, because some jackass would always steal my tester, and would take a new battery and just pitch the old shitty one in the box of new ones. I used to work with a bunch of people referred to as engineers, lots of book smarts but zero common sense.
Link Posted: 2/13/2013 5:26:37 PM EDT
I hate doing it. I must be 220 and not 110.

Well, you can get your dag to do it for you...once anyway.
Link Posted: 2/13/2013 5:29:31 PM EDT
yep, nothing to it. Now try hooking a controller for a model rocket to your braces, and get back to me. I did this when i was about 12, hooked the alligator clips on, and hit the button, not fun.

oh you were lucky!



ETA: i think its a guy thing. My dad used to have me do it to tell if they were good. not a great taste but it sure lets you know if it will still work. My wife had the same reaction though, couldn't believe anyone would do that and thought it was just me.

We were all 5 once.

My son licked one of those pocket stun guns not too long ago. Didn't realize that it holds a charge after turning it off.. Of all those things I wish I had a video of.
Link Posted: 2/13/2013 5:33:08 PM EDT
What does a 9 volt battery and a butt hole have in common?
You know it's wrong, but eventually you are going to lick it.
