      Ten Commandants of Electronic Safety

      I. Beware to the lighting that lurks in an un-discharged
      capacitor lest it cause thee to be bounded upon thy backside in a
      most ungentlemanly manner.
      II. Cause thou the switch that supplies large quantities of juice
      to be opened and thus tagged, so thy days may be long on earth.
      III. Prove to thyself that all circuits that radiate and upon
      which thou workest are grounded lest they lift thee to a high
      frequency potential and cause thee to radiate also.
      IV. Take care that thou use the proper method when thou takest
      the measure of high voltage that it not incinerate both thee and the
      meter, for verily, though thou hast no account number and canst be
      easily replaced, the meter doth have such and shall bring great woe
      upon the supply department.
      V. Tarry not amongst those who engage in intentional shocks, for
      they are surely unbelievers and not long for this world.
      VI. Take care thou tamper not with interlocks and safety devices,
      for this shall incur the wrath of thy seniors, and unleash the fury
      of the safety officer down upon thy head and shoulders.
      VII. Work not with energized equipment, for if thou dost, thy
      buddies will surely be buying beers without thee, and thy space at
      the bar will be filled with another.
      VIII. Verily, verily I say unto thee: never service high-voltage
      equipment alone, for electric cooking is a slothful process, and thou
      mightest sizzle in thy own fat for hours before thy maker seeth fit
      to end thy misery, and draw thee into his fold.
      IX. Trifle not with radioactive tubes and substances, lest thou
      commence to glow in the darkness like unto a lightning bug.
      X. Commit thou to memory the work of thy prophets, which are
      written in the instruction books: they give thee the straight dope
      and steer thee away from error.
