Bad economy. Must have used the water pipes as a conductor.........

wrong.... water is not conductive.... it is the minerals found in most water that makes "water conductive"

So if I jumped in a blow-up pool of distilled water that's electrified I should be all right?

*edit: Quick someone send that to myth-busters

Did you really have to get technical here? So much for my sarcasm

it is not true that distilled water does not conduct electricity. Distilled water is almost pure but it will still have some conductivity (0.0001-0.001 mS/cm).
Other methods such as reverse osmosis (filtering out the ions) and deionization (removing ions by adsorption to ion-exchange media) can also produce very high purity water, but they cant get rid of all the ions. For example, as soon as water is exposed to the atmosphere CO2 dissolves into the water and ionizes.
And even absolutely pure water still has some conductivity (0.00006 mS/cm) because H2O itself exists to some extent as ions (H3O+ and OH-).

I would but I don't have an account damnit, and I refuse to use my fb to "log in". This would make an awesome myth to test!

When I worked at the plastic injection molding plant it was said of one of the crew he could work on a machine and make the electrical cabinet leak water hydraulic fluid or both. Also way back in school didn't they often compare current flow to water flow???

Just for arguments sake. Distilled water is conductive like PV said. I've been building watercooled computers for years. Every now and again I've messed up and at least twice it's fried my video card due to a leak somewhere.
