    Are people stupid....well yes they are!

    I was tiding up last night and found a pen my bro bought me a couple of Christmas's ago.

    So what? it's no ordinary pen because if press the top and you get a nasty shock. So I fitted a new AAA battery and took it in to work this morning to see what happened:

    1) I left it on someone's desk and sure enough they pressed the top.
    2) The person above handed to someone else and told them what it did, so they pressed it to find out!
    3) Some one else picked it up off my desk, knowing what happened above, then pressed it to see how sharp the shock was.

    I think it's like when your Mother told you not to touch something because it was sharp or hot, a voice in your head told you to find out how sharp or hot it was.

    Oh, I work in an office with intelegent people, or so I thought. It may be relevent, but all victims were blokes!
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!

    I would press the button to see how sharp the shock was...doesn't make me stupid...it's called curiosity

    ...although they do say it killed the cat.

    I used to have one of those shock games that shocked you while you were the unlucky one who was holding the joystick thing when it made its farty noise...I ended up having to throw it away because I used to scream regardless of whether it was me or not who got the shock!

    Now my natural reaction wouldnt be to press the button, it'd be to unscrew it and see what size battery it was to see the power behind the shock... then to stab someone with the button so they got a shock

    kieth can you send me then pen so I can touch it too please.

    As a radio technician I've had my fair share of shocks. The best one though was when i decided to fit a new light switch in my bedroom with the power live cos something was recording on the sky+

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring
