Pfft

by Dave H

Where I used to work we hired a new electrical engineer right out of college and I got to give him the "Electric Meters 101" lecture. About halfway in he mutters, "Kilovolts? Megawatts? Man was never meant to possess such power."

This in a lab where you could hear someone say "Relax, it's only 120" about once a month.
