I used to have a scrund that could have led to disastrous results if I had acted on it. Fortunately, like most people, I was never in a situation that would have called for such action. I bet many of you have had the scrund, too. What is it?

Scrund about...
politics?
government?
law?
literature?
history?
science?
food?
art?
languages?
medicine?
transportation?

Do people ever actually act on this scrund?

Would acting on the scrund lead to physical harm? Death? Interpersonal strife? Loss of property or money? Would acting on their scrund only have disastrous results for you?

The physical harm that acting on the scrund would bring, would it be electrocution? Poisoning? Blunt force trauma? Suffocation? A burn? A chemical burn? A specific illness? Radiation?

Are there specific chemicals involved in the scrund? Is the scrund confusing one or more kinds of chemicals?

Insulating oneself relevant? e.g. standing on wood? Sticking something into a socket?

Random thought, are toasters relevant?

Did you think you could extinguish them with water? But in fact it's dangerous because the water might conduct the electricity to your body?

*********** SPOILER ************
I used to have the scrund that all fires could be extinguished with water. But using water on a grease fire or an electrical fire is inviting disaster.I invite you to check out my new, harder (I hope) puzzle.
