Spouse is the hardy kind. When we were dating in 1964 (in Holland, 220V),
she had a problem with the electrical cord of her iron. It was too long.
So she cut it with the big scissors. That melted a hole like a half circle
with a quarter inch diameter in the scissors.

Could have been me. I don't recall why, but I was doing something
when I was about 10 that involved putting a plug in an outlet and it
had about 8" of pigtail on it with the ends stripped. I'd been using
it to test something and just left it plugged in. Later in the day I
saw it and thought "I need to pull that plug out" and I just grabbed
the pigtails and YEOUCH!!!. Luckily they shorted and blew the fuse.
The stuff I did as a kid with electricity would never be allowed
