    News Story - Stray voltage: Hidden danger that can strike from everyday objects

    http://www.today.com/news/stray-volt...cts-1D80279142

    Did you see this on NBC this morning ? interesting & scary at the same time.

    I never heard of this before.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    Mrs. Maister dealt with some stray voltage cases when she worked with an insurance defense firm. It's not as rare a phenomenon as you might think.
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor
