Is lupus spread by touching?

No: Lupus is not a contagious disease, so is not spread from one person to another. Lupus is an auto-immune disease in which the ill person's immune system is reacting with his own body.

If you are touching someone who is hit by a taser will you be electrocuted too?

Probably not: For a bystander get the 5 seconds of high voltage when touching somebody else who is getting taser'd, the bystander would have to conduct electricity very well. The electricity wants to go from one prong to the other, so travels in between the prongs. However, if the main person got hit with one prong and the bystander with the other prong, the electricity would have to travel through both people.

Strange, scary,: Early on, when child is with others without a parent, need to get across to them in a non-frightening manner, that if feel in any way uncomfortable about a particular person, or there is something scary about that person, move away and find a trusted person. If anyone, even 'trusted', touches private parts (even if it feels good), same thing. Accept nothing from a stranger. Teach them a firm 'no'.
