Of course you are just jerking around about the penny (I hope, or you
have "issues"). But my grandfather used to do this in boxes with glass
fuses and cloth covered wire. We were lil tykes but me and bro recall
laughing our asses off when he took a jolt and flew back a bit.
Poor gramps. Just tryin to spend a penny to save a nickel.
since were on this fuse thing...
many years ago I was at battleship cove with my brother and some
friends, including my old electronics instructor:(
anyhow wqe all walked in this compartment and I noticed a old fuse box
with its fuse door removed...
fuse out I figured it MUST be safe, they wouldnt leave such a hazard
exposed, so I did what I always wanted to do and touched the base
Dumb move it was LIVE:( 440 Volts!
I flew out the door bacxkwards, my friends howled in laughter!
About this time the maintence guy walked in and asked whats up:)
He had removed the fuse to do some work in another compartment:( Fuse
door cover permanetely missing:(
He said be careful doint touch stuff you can get killed on this ship!
To this day those who were there talk about my poor move:(
ive been keeping a check on the fuse panel
the main breaker is warm, but noways near close enough to start a fire
well, we should stay away from each other, we could be dangerous
with you putting your finger in a live socket
and me putting spare change in the fuse panel
somebody could get hurt
the hazard isnt the main breaker box, its the line leading to the
outlet, which might cause a fire at any time.
hpomeowners insurance wouldnt pay for rebuilding after seeing your
internet posts and penny in the box.....
Is that really you?
I recall when you cut the end off the extension cord and connected it to the
TV antenna terminals after you saw that whole house wiring antenna
advertised ov TV.
I see you haven't changed a bit.
How you been getting along?
