Newbie level 4
I recently got shocked when I touched a live lightbulb socket with a butter knife. However, I was standing on a wooden chair when I did so. How did I complete the circuit standing on a wooden chair? I have been reading a lot in order to understand the specifics involved in electric shocks but I still don't understand why I got shocked if I wasn't grounded. The shock was pretty intense. I involuntarily threw the knife across the room at 100mph.
