Faster PC or instant fire?



"A 240V mains lead found during a clean up in an Australian university engineering faculty. It has been tagged out and the pins bent after it was found. Yes, that's a DB9 female connector on the other end, just the thing to plug into the serial port on your PC. Nothing is known about the history of this cord, but the DB9 looks like its been fitted in the factory"

Is there a valid reason for this, other than frying main board, ram and hard disc? if so please let safetyphoto know.
