it actually felt pretty good, though enough power to even light the lights didn't pass through.
Ah so you completed the path to the lights with your hand. I think since there was a resistive load (lights) on the end of that line, less current was able to go through, hence it didn't hurt your hand, but was more like a massage
It would have been painful if you did a direct hot-neutral bond with your hand :O
I'm not sure if I'm correct with the above assumption.
Well at the time the load was 4x 100w incandescent bulbs and a ceiling fan, and the amount that passed wasn't even enough to dimly light the lights.
However upping the resistance by using a finger from the other hand made it much more painful. (though using the other hand like that is a bad idea.
