At least i know not to stick my fingers in
When I was straight out of CSU Long Beach, one of the temporary jobs I
had was repairing classroom computers (mostly Apple //c, but some
others). An OMR apprentice was doing her rotation in the computer shop,
and working on a monochrome CRT monitor. And she brushed up against the
12KV "well." Thankfully, she survived, and didn't have to leave by
ambulance, but the expression on her face was priceless. Later, I was
working on a Commodore PET, while it was plugged in, and brushed up
against 120VAC. It left me with some sore muscles.
And more recently, at Touchtone, I changed out a blown fuse in an old
3180 terminal. When I tried to power it back up, the fuse didn't just
blow, it *exploded.* That terminal was promptly retired.
