As long as electricity can move through a loop, it is OK Hazards arise when there is a break in the loop. If there is a break in the wires, the electricity, being unable to move through its circuit or escape to the ground, will start to collect ans store at the breaking point. This is what we call a HOT wire. If you touch it, the electricity will use you as its conduit and you will be shocked. Three pronged plugs include a grounding pin. This pin acts as a conduit to the ground if there is a problem in the wiring. Although this does not mean a hot wire won't hurt you. Grounding electricity certainly helps, but it does not prevent you from shock if you touch a hot wire.
