Found this digging through some old files. A funny spin on some deadly serious subject matter.


Ten Commandments of Electronic Safety

1. Beware of the lightning that lurks in an undischarged capacitor lest it
cause thee to be bounded upon thy backside in a most ungentlemanly manner.

2. Cause thou the switch that supplies large quantities of juice to be opened
and thus tagged, so that thy days may be long on earth.

3. Prove to thyself that all circuits that radiate and upon which thou workest
are grounded, lest they lift thee to a high-frequency potential and cause thee
to radiate also.

4. Take care that thou use the proper method when thou measure of high
voltage, that it not incinerate both thee and thy meter; for verily, though
thou hast no account number and canst be easily replaced, the meter doth have
such and shall bring great woe upon the calibration lab.

5. Tarry not amongst those who engage in intentional shocks. For they are
surely nonbelievers and not long for this world.

6. Take care thou tamper not with interlocks and safety devices. For this
shall incur the wrath of thy seniors, and unleash the fury of the safety
officer down upon thy head and shoulders.

7. Work not with energized equipment; for if thou dost, thy buddies will
surely be buying beers without thee, and thy space at the bar will be filled by
another.

8. Verily, verily, I say unto thee: never service high-voltage equipment
alone; for electric cooking is a slothful process, and thou mightest sizzle in
thine own fat for hours before thy Maker seeth fit to end thy misery, and draw
thee into His fold.

9. Trifle not with radioactive tubes and substance, lest thou commence to glow
in the darkness like unto a lightning bug.

10. Commit thou to memory the works of the prophets, which are written in the
instruction books; They give thee the straight dope and steer thee away from
error.

Well, what other motivation do you need, to follow the rules?. [Linked Image]
