1970/71 USS ORION we had an EM-2 named MIKE BOWERS....steroid freak who stood about 5'6" with 20" biceps and looked like you pumped 10 PSI of air into him.....

To test for A/C he would put his elbow on ground and bounce the back of his hand on the terminal.....saw him do that o a 440 vac power buss on a $100 bet

I don't recommend that...

No brain. no pain ?

I don't juggle knives and I don't play with electricity. Or anything else I don't understand.
