Electrical question - suppose some idiot plugged

A disconnected plug into a 220 outlet and it zapped. What would break? Breaker? Would the plug?

Was it a dryer plug you were swapping out and you were checking to see if it was the right kind, but you weren't thinking and plugged it in, and then it popped? Did it spark and leave a little scorch mark on the tile floor of the laundry room?

Bro, I’m not saying that.

But what if I were? Nothing happened to tile. Just some scarring on end of wire and some soot.

Next time use the tip of your tongue to test the receptacle

Did it sound like a firecracker and make a really bright spark?

Just curious, because that's what I'd imagine it to be like.

Get that dryer hooked up so you can dry those drawers after you wash them.

I knew it!

I may or may not know an idiot who may or may not have done the same thing. Nothing may or may not have been damaged from it.

Should flip the breaker. I’ve made that exact mistake before

I'm glad to hear that the person I may or may not know isn't the only idiot who may or may not have done this.

Did you also have several head injuries growing up?

lol I did this last year. I was making sure I had the correct prong for the outlet and plugged it in. Zap. Lights gone.

Flipped the main and everything was back to normal. Felt like an idiot. Had to purchase a new plug.

The idiot I know must have gotten lucky. The breaker for the dryer threw, but no damage was done. The plug was fine.

Because it was fried? The dryer isn’t working, and I think it’s because the plug may be fricked up?
