I hate electricity

I failed EE200 in college, and learned quite early on in my college career to avoid that aspect of engineering. I chose architectural instead. As a result I suck at wiring and I don't generally understand it....

With help from @Big Sarge @ChasUGC and @cicatriz63 I finally got my kicker sub wired the right way...but this guy below really emphasizes why I hate electricity in a highly entertaining way. Hope you can enjoy/appreciate it as much as I did

I've been shocked so many times, and nearly killed by getting cooked from the inside out once, that I embrace electricity. My mom told me I stuck my first fork in an electrical outlet when I was 5 years old. I was fascinated with anything electrical ever since.

That was my buddy Brian.....electrical engineer. Would stick a pair of insulated pliers in a hot panel in a heartbeat without thinking twice.

My other buddy Travis is an EE for T.E. and tests car parts to failure. He works with a bajillion volts sending current thru non-conductive parts until they explode. He loves it. OSHA and his company safety team aren't authorized to even be near his lab.

Well that's how you test if there are any loose exposed connections. Jam a screwdriver in the box and wiggle it around. If you see sparks, or you arms gets shot back launching the screwdriver across the room, it's hot.

Also make note. On a device with a CRT display, there will be a trace on the board leading to it. It will be labeled something along the lines of "DANGER 1000 VOLTS DO NOT TOUCH". They're not kidding.

On a related note... if some douchetard previous owner omits the neutral while making some home handyman wiring changes to the bedroom, standing on the metal roof and touching a window air conditioner will be an enlightening experience.
