I can't recall ever doing anything overly stupid with electricity, but
I've been witness to a few "interesting" happenings...a printer that
caught fire, the results of plugging a heavy old floor vacuum into a
lightweight extension cord and the sound of 20+ computers suddenly
going quiet because of a fuse box failure.
I now see why this thread is so long. :-D
As a kid, I took one of those 24-hour timers, plugged it in, and shorted
the output prongs together with a Philips screwdriver. Welded a bit of
copper to the screwdriver.
Much more recently, I was in a computer room, one of a pair with
redundant power, when the electrician managed to short out the
interchange between the two, killing power to both rooms.
Life is toxic. It leads to death and
too much of it at once can kill you.
