    I've seen this on the news few hours ago. It might cure dyscalculia someday but does it have the prospect
    of making one an algebraic number theorist? If it does, then I will have to be supplied with large doses of it!
    On a serious note, though, this has a rather nice application: get good at maths or get electric shocks. Heh!

    I've had a 500V discharge through my right arm and out through my left eye.
    After 10 years, the eye had finally healed. Pity I didn't evaluate the effect of it!

    You are serious? So it was a lightning?

    No, it was an accident. I was fixing a power supply at twice mains voltage and my hand slipped.
    Luckily I had a few earlier instances of mains shock and my reflexes are very good.
    The arm muscles wouldn't work but I was able to jump pretty quickly!

    I would make some comment about removing fuses or using the circuit breakers when working on such, but last week when fixing my lighting circuit at least a couple of times I realised that I was working with a live circuit (its all that switching the power on and off between trying things that leaves one oblivious to the current state)

    Unfortunately, the problem with this one was a noisy signal that required tracking down,
    (rather complex circuitry) but yeah! good advice nonetheless CB.
