To the Metalbending Police Force of Republic City:
…since you’re dealing with electrocuting foes, why can’t you just wear rubber shoes? Problem solved!
Also, remember: you can’t be electrocuted while flying, falling, jumping in middle-air (you’re not touching any ground). No need to scream and fake pain like that.
No, not even if you’re into a car, a plane, a zeppelin or anything that is flying.
