    Very funny, but.

    I remember once when I was repairing a Microwave about 25yrs ago. A New Tech came up and said hey "whatchoo doin" I said, I just replaced the Magnetron, I'm testing it. He said, where's the Magnetron?

    I said right there in the middle the one with the 2 heavy wires and aluminum cooling fins. He said point to it, I said I'm not that stupid, it'll kick your ass or kill you.

    He said you mean right here and pointed his finger to it about four inches away.

    I said, I wouldn't do that if I were you. He went a little closer, I said that thing is going to bite you good.

    The big dumby said, couldn't be that b........... without finishing the "Word - Bad" his thumb moved closer to the cabinet and suddenly and Arc came off one of the terminals, about an inch" or more and drilled a small white hole through his index finger and went around to his thumb and shot out his thumb to the case. All the meat was cooked good as it snaked it's way through.

    I laughed so hard as he looked "surprisingly" at the tiny white holes, I thought I was going to pass out from laughter.

    If it would have been anyone else, I would have felt sorry for him. But, this "guy" did stuff like this almost everyday. I'm really surprised he survived.

    Some people should never breed, especially this guy:rolleyes:

    Being a ham, I have had my share of self-cauterizing RF burns. They take for ever to heal. Running 2kW into an old bread-board balanced-feeder antenna tuner, the RF voltages are high enough to reach out and touch you...
