I had an e-mail from a guy just now that said just that in the subject line. I would counter that with you are a long time dead my friend. I got rid of the e-mail but if any of you are stupid enough to send me an e-mail like that, make sure you beat yourself stupid afterwards. Because if you don't, I will. Idiot. Safety eh?.
Unreal he was most likely holding a light for someone else.We all have to do live work from time to time.I never brag about or think I am tough or any bs like that.I also never really lokk forward to it.Oh well he is most likely new in the trade.Everbody's got to be green once.I remember the first I put a fuse in a pad mounted x-frmr the exact moment I started to slide the fuse in a squirel bucked phases in the pot head right above me.Talk about bad timing.

I like to say "There are BOLD electricians, and there are OLD electricians....but there are no OLD BOLD electricians!
I really think there is no room in the trade for those who "think with their hormones." I don't want those kind of "men" on my jobsite; I want responsible adults.
I once got a letter that had but one word :"Wuss." Now, I've received many letters where the author forgot to sign his message....but this was the first where he signed, but forgot to include his message!

I'd like to say, we've all had to do "Live Work" (bare handed) at some time or another. I've never worked anything above 480 live (bare handed)and would flat refuse to do so. But, there are situations that arise such as emergencey's that require this. I do not like it! I do not condone it! I would never ask anyone else to do it!
Saying someone should be beat stupid is tuff talk from a keyboard, because I'd wager even you have done this.

I don't think the point was that he worked 480 live,I'd bet most or many of us have. I think the problem was that he for some reason thinks he's a badass for doing so. Im my opinion he's a child and has no business in this field if hes a Jman or if hes a young apprentice he needs to mature.
Want to be a badass and impress me, work on what lineman work on energized.
Hey Surfing, Im south of you in Martin County.
