Vintage books and magazines can tell you a lot about the way people used to live back in the day. When this old publication resurfaced on the internet, however, it raised more questions than the answers it provided.

It's from 1931 and it's called Elektroschutz in 132 Bildern (Electrical Protection in 132 Pictures). The book simply lists ways people could've gotten electrocuted and while some of them totally make sense (for example, touching a lamp), there are some that look... bizarre, to put it lightly. Like, that one about the guy peeing off a bridge. Continue scrolling to check out what I mean!
