Subject - Verb Agreement

14 April 2015 21:50

There's pretty much no way that I can describe the act of cutting a live, 240V mains-voltage, wire in half with a pair of scissors which doesn't make me look like an idiot.

Yet yesterday evening that is exactly what I did.

There were mitigating circumstances, but trying to explain them would make little sense unless you could see the scene.

In conclusion: I'm alive, although I almost wasn't.

My scissors? They have a hole in them.

Glad you are alive and well! Now, throw that multimeter to the trash can, along with the scissors, before someone kills himself after trusting it.

I'm glad you're OK.

Just for the record the recommended fool-proof procedure before working on mains is using cheap voltage tester pen that was tested on known live socket first.

One big #yolo moment! Glad to hear you are still in one piece (well, in one piece and uncooked)!
