I feel disoriented. Good job!

LOL - yes, anything that disorients Disco is a "good job." :-)Most things disorient me.

Just don't climp to the top to get a photo looking down. I think there is 50K volts!

Yow. That reminds me very loosely of something hubby read today (and read to me today). Said there's a generation of kids that think Transformers are robots that convert to vehicles, etc. and that they really do exist on some level or place. If you want to give your kids a great toy as well as education, get them some defunct transistor radios, a cheap voltage tester, and let them go to town on breaking it apart, figuring it out, and putting it back together. :-)

Just get your kids one of those Radio Shack 200 in 1 electronics kits.....well, if Radio Shack still makes them that is. I remember using mine to measure the voltage in the wall.....bad idea!

YoW! I ran my own electricity for a three-room addition and, in trying to figure out a three-way switch with complications, only electrocuted myself once - and mildly. It passed inspection! I was so tickled. It's amazing what you can do when you have to (KIDS, DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME!) :-)
