Like most of you said don't do it. In the rare event of a power outage running a extension cord will just fine. No risk to myself or others. So I say Thank You for all the sensible responses.

Please do not ever make a dead man's extension cord. This is an extension cord with a male connector on each end. A very dangerous thing to have around...

I've done this for years as backup power, but you need to know what you are doing. My generator is 7000 watts 220V so I can run just about anything I want in my house.
