Okay, so here's another thread about my magnum opus, the one mentioned here and here. As a reminder, the story takes place in mostly Malaysia (though the first five minutes is set in Indonesia) in 1967. Anyways, there's a scene that takes place in the abusive circus where the gibbon character is forced to swing across some monkey bars with a deep vat of water at the bottom, to get some fruit on the other side. At first he's excited about this, but as soon as he touches the first bar, it shocks him. He continues swinging across as he gets more and more shocked until he reaches the end and finds his hands and feet are badly burned. I was wondering if electrified monkey bars would be a believable (not necessarily realistic, but believable) thing to see in 60's Malaysia. I mean, people did all sorts of crazy things with electricity beforehand, so I guess it wouldn't be TOO far-fetched, but I just wanted to check.
