    10 commandments for Technicians

    1. Beware the lightning that lurketh in the undischarged capacitor,
    lest it cause thee to bounce upon thy buttocks in a most
    un-technicianlike manner.

    2. Cause thou the switch that supplieth large quantities of juice to
    be opened and thus tagged, that thy days in this Earthly vale of
    tears be long.

    3. Prove to thyself that all circuits that radiateth and upon which
    thou toil are grounded and thusly tagged lest they lift thee unto
    radio heaven.

    4. Tarry thou not amongst those fools that engageth in intentional
    shocks, for they are surely non-believers and are not longeth for
    this world.

    5. Take care that thou useth the proper method when thou taketh the
    measure of a high voltage circuit, lest thou incinerate both
    thyself and thy meter.

    6. Take care thou tampereth not with interlocks and safety devices,
    for this incurreth the wrath of thy supervisor and bringeth the
    fury of the safety inspector upon thy head and about thy shoulders.

    7. Toil not thou on energized equipment, for if thou so doest, thy
    fellow workers will surely buy beers for thy widow and console
    her otherwise.

    8. Service thou equipment not alone, for electrical cooking is a
    slothful process and thou might sizzle in thine own juices for
    hours upon a hot circuit before thy Maker sees fit to end thy

    9. Trifle thou not with radioactive tubes and substances lest thou
    commenceth to glow in the dark liketh a lightning bug and thy spouse
    hath no further use for thee except for thy wages.

    10. Causeth thou to be tagged all modifications made by thee upon equipment
    lest thy successor teareth out his hair and goeth slowly mad in
    his attempt to decide what manner of creature madeth a nest in
    the wiring of such equipment.
