    There isnt much left on the World I havent taken apart. Still working together with the underworld to get me a corpse and take that apart !

    Bad jokes aside, my istp dad doesnt lay hands on shit he doesnt know about. I think he's a coward

    but to set things straight, he at least hadnt touched alternating current lines for 3 times already. I am convinced when I survive the forth one, I'll carry on a more significant brain damage that time

    People have suggested that I'm an ISTP because fiddling with things is a hobby of mine. I don't take things apart that are working, usually, but I get gleeful when things break that I really wanted to get into. Sometimes I manage to fix them, too. If not, I play with their guts.

    You purposely touch current lines? Why?

    I shouldn't talk though. I've purposely shocked myself with a stun gun once.

    Purposely ? No. But when your mind is faster than your hands at times you forget things like plugged in connectors . Last time I nearly shortwired and electrical cars battery. Had about 10 Amperes that would have been the end :/

    heh that's like a 20 minute job when you've seen it before but props for taking it on.

    The voltage hurts but it's the current that kills you.

    Also household 110 isn't that bad. Remember kids: when you pull the outlet out of the wall don't handle the sides.

    also, i just bought some nice jeans from the thrift store and i've realized they have a button fly which was probably pretty cool before they invented the zipper. if i was better with a sewing machine i'd take the fly off my "patch jeans" (the pair I keep around to make patches out of) and sew it in there but i'm not skilled enough. maybe if i destroy this pair then i'll try it out.

    i should have been a seamstress.


    of course by then i'll have figured out how to use these easily enough.
    Don't know how much it'll bend til it breaks.
