Nice puzzle - try to crack it ...

Once there was a bus conductor, who was very rude to his passengers.

One day a beautiful young girl, of around 18 years,tried to board the bus,
but he didn't stop the bus.

Unfortunately the beautiful young girl came under the bus and died on the spot. Angry passengers took the conductor to the police station, who in turn took him to the court.

The judge was not at all impressed with him and gave him capital
punishment.

He was taken to the electrocution chamber. There was a single chair in the
center of the room and a single banana peel at one corner of the room. The
conductor was strapped to the chair and high voltage current was given to
him. But to everyone's amazement, he survived. The judge decided to set him
free, and he returned to his profession.

After a few months, this time, a good looking middle aged woman tried to board the bus but the conductor didn't stop the bus. Unfortunately, this time also, the good looking middle aged woman came under the bus and died on the spot.

Again angry passengers took him to the police station, who in turn
took him to the court. The judge took one look at the conductor and gave
him capital punishment. The Bus conductor was taken to the same electrocution




chamber where there was a single chair in the center of the room and
a single banana peel at one corner of the room. He was strapped to the
chair and high voltage current was given to him. This time also to
everyone's amazement, he survived. The judge decided to set him free, and
he returned to his profession.

A couple of months later, an elderly gentleman tried to board the
bus. This time the Bus conductor, remembering his earlier experiences,
stopped the bus. Unfortunately the elderly gentleman slipped and died due to his
injuries. The conductor was taken to the police station and then to the court, to the same judge. Though he hadn't done anything wrong, but considering his past record the judge decided to set an example and gave him capital punishment.
The Bus conductor was again taken to the same electrocution chamber where there was a single chair in the center of the room and a single banana peel at one corner of the room. He was strapped to the chair and high voltage current was given to him.

This time he died instantly !!!!!!!!!!!

The question is why didn't he die on the first two occasions, but died

instantly the third time??

Try to solve it yourselves. This is rather interesting and answer is

perfectly logical. If necessary read the puzzle once again.

Still you couldn't, Then see below.........

think hard

common yaar.............

tired....

wanna know the answer????

ok........ there is the Answer............

During the first two times, the conductor was a Bad Conductor,
therefore electricity didn't pass through him. But during the third time,




he was a good conductor, so electricity passed through him freely and
he died !!!!!!!!

Ha Ha Ha ha !!!!!!!! Obviously you gotta revise your science chapter

on Electricity ???
