Not a bad idea. However this would put the damper on a few men
on these Tesla lists who do it to get away from their wives ;-)

Yes. I was once saved by half-inch thick rubber soles. Shortly
out of school on my first job in research, I was hooking up a 3-kV
power supply which I thought was off. It wasn't. (Kids! I was
too confident.) I felt the tiny tingle and was quite surprized.
Would have been more than a tiny tingle if it hadn't been for the
shoes, as I was standing on a bare-copper ground plane.
