Shocked myself with 40,000volts today. And shocked a coworker. He wanted to feel what it felt like. Needless to say he didn't want to try a second time. Lol!

That reminds me of one.

For about a year, I repaired barometric altimeters. My work bench had a test set that showed a digital indication of the altitude to ensure that the output match the indication of the needle. I usually had the altimeter out of its case so I could adjust everything, then connect power to check the accuracy, disconnect, and readjust as necessary. There was a round circuit card that the harness connected to. I would grab the edges of the card to hold it still while I disconnected it. I had never had a problem until this one time. When I grabbed the circuit card it shocked the shit out of me. It got me so bad I yelled quite loudly in our little shop. I was pissed so I reached up and slapped off the power switch on the test set to kill the power. Then I grabbed the circuit card again....and it shocked me AGAIN. I yelled again. Then everybody asked me how many times I was gonna let myself get shocked. Turns out the test set only turned off the DC power. The 115v 400hz power didn't go through test set. It was hot all the time. In fact, there was no way to turn it off at my bench unless I went to the power supply in the closet and turned it off. Let me tell you, 115v 400hz is SIGNIFICANTLY more painful than 110v 60hz.

400hz sounds like it'll scramble you but 60hz matches the frequency of your body which is lethal. I hate when I shock myself and then try to remove power then shock myself again!

Freaking capacitors will also get you every time. Screw those things!

Yesterday I almost bolted the flywheel and pressure plate on my friend's car back on without putting the clutch disc in first. That would have been embarrassing.
