More helpful advice
Disconnect power sources before messing with electrical stuff.

Last night I smushed my extension cord plug and around 2AM I was on the phone with my friend trying to fix it by shoving my soldering iron in there to open on the connections when I felt my body go rigid and I dropped the phone. Luckily the GFI kicked in and kept me from getting my foolish self killed.

Let's be careful, friends.

Haha, I don't think I should be allowed to work on cars.

Reminds me of when I was a kid. I used to break lightbulbs and take the tungsten wires out, and stick them into electrical sockets, again, and again, and again...

Two summers ago, I was in a catering cook tent, and I was running extension cords from a geneartor parked outside. There were two that were unconnected and I guess they'd been lying in a puddle, well when I held the two in front of me, and connected them a huge phosphorescent orb of light was created right before my eyes. I am happy the light did not engulf me or I would be in the matrix now instead of talking about gasoline. :)

I just stepped on my soldering iron, :(, foot it in a pot of cool wudder now.

Don't think I was meant to live too long.

Get some olivera lotion and put on, it work's fairly quickly, it eases pain, it keep's from blistering and pealing, it is your FRIEND!

Stop being so unkind to yourself.
