    Wow you people are smart up in here!!!! :eek: ;)

    I've a question refferring to a fanfiction I'm writing. If an electrical device (like an Ipod docking station) is dropped into a bath tub containing a person, what will happen to their body? I.e description-wise plus internal organs, damage etc..?

    Thanks :thumbsup:

    try this (a very good book I used to do some research some time ago):

    http://books.google.com.ar/books?id...0CDUQ6AEwAQ#v=onepage&q=electrocution&f=false

    or this one:

    http://books.google.com.ar/books?id...=gbs_selected_pages&cad=3#v=onepage&q&f=false

    I think they describe electrocution very well :)

    Welcome to the board, thequeenjanice. Hopefully when the season begins some questions will come up and there will be some posts on this board.

    When they go through the house to get forensics, why don't they turn the lights on

    I've heard Grissom and others say it's because they want to see the house/scene the way it was when the crimes took place, and from the killer's perspective. Since they work the grave shift, it's night most of the time, until the case carries over into the day. Plus I think TPTB think it's more dramatic, and then they get to use all of their fancy flashlights :lol:

    Ladybronco's right that it's important to see the scene how the offender(s) would have seen it, having said that there reaches a point in processing when you can turn the lights back on again! :lol:

    I had asked this question on another thread, but maybe I can ask here, what was the chemical used to break the strings on the man's parachute when he jumped out of the that plane. I can't think of the name of the episode, it was on several weeks ago. The emergency parachute would work either. I think it was Frank who found the parachute pack with some kind of chemical that caused those strings to break. Watching that make me scared of ever want to jump out of a plane with a parachute!

    Yes, it is Miami and this episode just was on TV several weeks ago. Things on CBS have been so scattered on Sunday Nights that I never know until Sunday Night if CSI Miami is going to be on or not.:confused:

    I need to create a 'murder' scene and need to be able to create blood splatters to be detected with a uv light. I have the kit and have been researching various liquids to use but nothing shows up very well under the light. Any suggestions?
