My brother stuck his finger in a socket when he was little, my dad said when he was by it "let him stick it in, he'll learn" he did too, he walked 20 out of it's way.

Na, but I've been hit by coils and capacitors a bunch of times.

BTW, that was way cool.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

Life has no instruction manual. Parts and labor can be impossible to find. Many go down the road with parts that are in need of service. A breakdown is eventual.

I once lived in a crappy old apartment in Montana and I was washing a spoon in the sink when I turned on the flourescent light above the sink. I got a very nice zap.

I changed a switch and thought the power was off. It wasn't and I touched both sides of the switch (one hand on each side) and felt the electricity go through one arm, across my chest, and through the other arm. Bit scary, but no damage done.

When I was about 10 years old I saw my Great Grandfather twist two wires together with his bare hands. My dad asked him if it hurt, he said it tingles a bit. He was a tough one.

Stuck a paper clip in an outlet when I was a kid once. I kinda remember it hurtin a bit.

My grandma used to have an un insulated switch going into the cellar. Wasn't a problem unless you were barefoot and standing on the concrete and touched the screws holding it down. You get a pretty kool tingle from the fingers to the toes. Man we had fun with that.

Been there and done that. Still have the scares to prove it. Whats worst is a high energy car coil from a race car. That hurts.

For some reason they couldn't unload one phase on these disconnects. If you noticed, the farthest two phases opened just fine, no arc. The workers looked like they were expecting it. Notice how the guys on the right are standing behind the truck and the guys in the foreground are far away? This is why I don't like working in our 345,000v switchyard.
