I've just written the Stray Voltage Detection app. It's foolproof.

Before you test for stray voltage, you press the "About to test" button. 

Then you touch the surface that you think might the electrified. 

After that, you press the "OK, I didn't die" button on the app. 

If you don't press the second button, the app reports that stray voltage was present.

A variation of "Hey, watch this"...

Except the body laying there is a dead giveaway.  :o

The trick is to touch with the back of your finger so the grip reflex pulls you away.

Yup, I was taught to always scrape a knuckle on any box or wire that had ANY chance of being electrified. Even after I metered it and confirmed it wasn't hot. I just never grab onto anything metal any more. Learned my lesson in my youth...
