    A wearable gadget with an app which claims to be able to produce feelings of calm assurance or clear-minded energy.

    Bring your wallet.

    I can do the same thing by sticking a butter knife in any nearby electric outlet for free!

    Too drastic. Now a 9 volt on your tongue? That's more like it.

    Nothing says calm like a stopped heart.

    I'll go ahead and chime in with a NO answer..... Calm has never been a feeling going through my head, after being lit up....

    I don't know, I like turning my TENS/EMS unit up as high as it will go with a long pulse and put a butterfly pad on each shoulder. Helps me relax and calm down after a rough day.

    I agree on this 100%, I have a similar device, only mine is totally implanted on my spinal cord at C4, with a rechargable battery implanted also, and used primarly for chronic pain ( RSDS ) simular to fibryl mialga(sp). I can change the polarity, waves, and the four contracts that lay against the spine, and recieve a calming wave.

    Yeah, that's one option I have in the future. I shattered L4, L5, and S1 and crushed the discs at T12-L1, L4-L5, and L5-S1. Surgery helped for a bit but now I'm back to a pre-surgery pain level and function, or lack there of.

    277 ain't no picnic either! But your encounters, while maybe less immediately
    lethal, have the tendency to cook you from the inside out! :eek:

    I got 5kV from am Megger one day, on a 17 hour shift, and it actually felt like
    it "energized" me for several hours ;) But there was no amperage, just voltage.
    Amps are what causes the damage, voltage can be quite stimulating! :D

    What sucks even worse is taking a hit off a ballast while repairing the sign out in front of an amazing mexican food restaurant as trade for a free family meal because some jag off decided to flip the breaker on despite the lockout/tagout in place...

    Egads!!! $300 and $4 each for a strip refill?

    If you just want to feel happy, you can buy 40 oz Colt 45's for about $2.50 each.

    Amateurs. :rofl:

    Pull the dead-front, remove the feed wires from the breakers.
    Only really safe way to do it! Especially where unauthorized
    personnel are also working. He must have just went in there
    and started flipping, looking for something else... :confused:

    The panel was locked shut. He unscrewed the cover to get to the breakers.....
