Not about tasers, but related to original question:

Lightning Specifics

Voltage in a cloud-to-ground strike is 100 million to 1 billion volts.

20% of all lightning victims die from the strike.

70% of survivors will suffer serious long-term effects

From Lightning Facts

100 million to 1 billion volts only kills 20% of people it hits.

It's the amperage that kills.
I'm sorry, I was just imaging what you would look like with duct tape over your mouth

The body is a very bad conductor of electricity. When you get hit by lightning most of the current passes around the body rather than through it. If it all passed through the body then the body would in effect turn into ashes.
(pulverised) I love that word!

I think there was a US Park Service Ranger who had been hit something like four times with no ill effect. My luck I would get hit once and end up like a breakfast sausage...

Speaking of tazers, I have some questions. 1st of all here is a link

on this site there are tazers advertized up to 400 thousand volts. My question is how many volts are needed to make a man instantly fall down and choke on his own vomit? U know what I mean, isnt 400000 MORe than enough?
Second my friend owns two cattle prods. We dont know the voltage on them. Are cattle prods similar to tazers? He says if he held it to someone theyd instantly be unable to atttack him. I zapped myself with one (yes I know, not bright) but I found it far less painful than id expect, and I told him i doubt it would take me down before i got at least a few good hooks onto him, especially with adrenaline going. He disagrees. What do you think?
And lastly, what is the cost in canadian dollars for a good effective (NON DEADLY) tazer?

wow,dude it's illlegal to have tasers in canada,

Tazers are illegal bud...cattle prods are a tool and your "bud" shouldnt be playing Luke VS Darth with them.I cant beleive you guys even honored this guys question..
"how many volts are needed to make a man instantly fall down and choke on his own vomit?"
Come on..this guy has to either have the mind of a 10 year old or actually be one. Plus he's a little too interested in illegal weapons..hope they catch you at the border if you try and pick one up.
