I've done single breaker lock out tag outs... honestly the thing you use could easily be broken off though... always made me worry.
User avatar #87 - dammriver (07/03/2014) [-]
I know. It's more like a sign saying not to turn it on..
User avatar #88 - thegamerslife (07/03/2014) [-]
when I was in job corp, we did work/training on industrial breakers. I like those, cause with some you have the little holes and can individually lock out the breakers.

I am not talking to you like you are stupid. It just takes more than just touching the ground to be grounded. If everything touching the ground was grounded there would be no need for ground rods. I can kneel on cement in a basement and hold a single hot wire and not feel a thing.

I am talking from experience not research.
User avatar #92 - dammriver (07/05/2014) [-]
Electricity takes the path with the least resistance, hence why we use copper in the field. It's cheap and has little resistance -less than steel- so it grounds out boxes, devices, etc. That's why we use grounding rods, GFCI receptacles, and all sorts of protection. Also, grounded literally means grounded. That's exactly why the ground rod goes into the ground.

By holding the wire, you're talking about the copper, right? If you hold the insulation, of course you won't feel a thing. Holding the copper on a live wire that is hot most definitely should shock you.
User avatar #93 - pawnman (07/05/2014) [-]
I have held live hot wire, the bare copper while kneeling on a cement floor in a normal 20A 120V circuit. It did not have enough current to be pushed through my body and into the ground since the cement itself was not a good conductor for electricity.
User avatar #94 - dammriver (07/05/2014) [-]
Cement was more figurative, but it acts as a [better] conductor when damp.
But, lets go to the second thing I said-outdoor receptacles.

Plus, the voltage would be what would push it through.
#95 - pawnman has deleted their comment.
User avatar #96 - dammriver (07/05/2014) [-]
Current is amps. Amps are pushed through the wires by voltage.

The way you say this makes me feel like you intentionally try to shock yourself.

I JUST completed four years of training in the electrical field, both classroom work and field work. I also just received my OSHA 30..
User avatar #97 - pawnman (07/05/2014) [-]
Congrats. Have you never gone through your whole electrical career and have not tried to shock yourself? It's natural curiosity. I have 4 years of college and am in the middle of building a power plant. In my Vo-tech highschool me and all of my class would try to see who could hold onto the neutral and hot the longest in one hand. I didn't win but hell it didn't kill any of us. Just felt weird as fuck. We were dumb 16-18 year old kids, shits what you do when your young. We experimented all the time with it. we had 5 of us grab hands and both ends had the hot and neutral but it didn't go through. Humans are week insulators but good enough to handle small circuits.

And it doesn't come down to what should happen. it's what does happen.
User avatar #99 - dammriver (07/05/2014) [-]
Well yeah, that wouldn't kill you. If both the hot and neutral were in your hand, it shouldn't kill you since it's only traveling through your hand.

Also, no, I haven't tried it.
User avatar #100 - pawnman (07/05/2014) [-]
I have also had it in either hand. Didn't kill me. I have had 280 go through my chest, felt like someone punched me. But i didn't die.
You keep saying should. It doesn't matter how many things you know or research. Just because things should happen because that's the way you learned it, doesn't mean it's the way it will happen.

Well i hope you aren't barefoot on cement. I'm never grounded. the only time i am shocked is if i grab hot and neutral on either side of the outlet when i am screwing on the wires. All it does is give me a tingling sensation. And i said 20A circuit not 20V
User avatar #79 - dammriver (07/03/2014) [-]
Don't talk to me like I'm stupid, because if you didn't notice, I said 20A too.

You don't have to be barefoot, but as long as you are touching the ground, you're grounded. Depending on how thick the rubber is on your boots or shoes can change that, but it usually doesn't (unless that's what they're rated for).

So, when you kneel down to get to that receptacle (if you're an electrician, it should be off anyway), your knee is only protected by the thin layer of your pants, which isn't really much at all.

Unless you're installing doorbells or emergency lighting on a low voltage circuit, it should do more than just tingle.

I stuck my finger in a light socket twice in the same day when I was like 5 and was just fine.
#39 - gaffateip (07/03/2014) [-]
You may still die from that.
Was your fingers stuck in the socket for a few seconds, or did you pull them out immediately?

You can rule out disrupted heartbeat cause it's so long ago, but electrical burn may still be a problem.

It's been almost a year since my last FSE course, and I remember something like cooking your flesh if you are stuck to the power source for a few seconds.

Cooking your hand isn't fatal because it's cooked, it's fatal because it releases a protein into your blood stream that's toxic to your kidney cells.

Here is something I found on the web after a quick search:
The injured muscle cell leaks myoglobin (a protein) into the blood stream. Myoglobin can be directly toxic to kidney cells, and it can impair and clog the filtration system of the kidney. Both mechanisms can lead to kidney failure

TL;DR : Respect electricity, if can and will kill you.

He's probably saying this assuming that no-one is stupid enough to deal with anything electronic whilst grounded/without insulated shoes etc. But I know tons of people who have legitimately no clue how electricity works and would happily do wiring in bare feet without killing the power first.

Where do you plan to put these solar farms? You can't put them in a place where there is going to be bad weather on a regular basis, you can't put them on private property without permission, and you can't put them on government property for fear of invading an endangered species.

"thelastamerican", I am so disappoint...
You say that as if there isn't a tiny checkbox on your electric company's profile of you that, when checked, provides 10% of your electricity through their renewable energy sources, costing the consumer nothing.

Many American electric companies offer this...
User avatar #195 - thelastamerican (06/24/2014) [-]
Do me a favor, and explain to me how this is in any way a good rebuttal to my comment. I don't know where you live, but there isn't a little check box where I live. Probably because I don't live near any feasible source of renewable energy. The terrain is too hilly to provide wind power. There aren't any rivers near by that are large enough or fast flowing enough, and solar cells are hilariously inefficient.

So, you're willing to make stupid remarks, then not back them up with any well thought out argument or facts? I guess that's alright too. But first, let me ask this. Is it because you have no good arguments, or is it because you're too lazy to actually present them?
#356 - pitifulsoul (06/24/2014) [-]
You keep saying "good rebuttal" and "good argument", yet commit so many logical fallacies yourself...

User avatar #449 - thelastamerican (06/24/2014) [-]
But you haven't actually made an argument yet. Unless you're considering the comment about the checkbox that some power companies provide to be an argument.
User avatar #178 - dammriver (06/24/2014) [-]
Then again, they cost more than they produce.. Some of the solar panels were dying after just two years of use, and when one solar panel shaves like $150 per year off of your bill, it doesn't add up..

User avatar #1163 to #1162 - dammriver ONLINE (04/18/2014) [-]
That's actually one of the reasons that I joined the fire department (I'm volunteer as well). I wanted to know what I'd be seeing, and what I would be dealing with.. Kinda also wanted to make sure that I could handle all of the blood and gore (though I was pretty sure that I could). After I joined, I fell in love with it.
User avatar #1164 to #1163 - wfddfw (04/18/2014) [-]
that's exactly what happened with me.

I'm still involved with the junior firefighter program, actually.. I joined fairly recently, and I'm 17.. Been to a lot of overdoses, some to people that I knew.

I think that my biggest problem is going to be children.
User avatar #1166 to #1165 - wfddfw (04/18/2014) [-]
I'm 17 as well, to be honest.


My biggest problem is children. I refuse to go to calls involving kids and pedis. We had a pedi CODE a while back and I just couldn't bring myself to go.

I've had my fair share of CODEs and doing CPR already, but it's just something about calls with kids that I can't handle

User avatar #1167 to #1166 - dammriver ONLINE (04/18/2014) [-]
Yeah, that's the same thing I hear with a lot of people.

But, on the brighter parts of it, the brotherhood is amazing, the bonds between us and t=police officers is awesome, and the fact that we are a community that does everything from have a cookout at somebody's house to fighting a fire in a matter of minutes is also awesome.. It's one big family, and I really enjoy it.
User avatar #1168 to #1167 - wfddfw (04/18/2014) [-]

I only joined abut six months ago, and I've met a lot of awesome people as well. Plus, it's an exciting conversation starter. Wearing a sweatshirt that says what department you're from, and all of the other firefighters start to talk to you.

Well that's kinda good.. Why do you have to move?

And I'm alright. Joined my local fire department as a volunteer, and I should have my Emergency Medical Responder certification by the end of June. Helping people out around my school and stuff.. It's good.

User avatar #1152 to #1151 - greedtheavaricious ONLINE (03/24/2014) [-]
God, I should really stop replying so slowly.

Well, where to start... job offer from dad at his company. Well, not his, but he's a high ranked animal there, so I'll be learning under his wings. He's living a couple hours away from here, means I'll have to move. Electrician! Something I've wanted to do since I was a toddler. Obviously wanted it because my dad does it, and sons usually try to become like their dads, eh?^^ Well I still want to, this time out of own reasons though.

Hey Dammdamm.

User avatar #1116 to #1115 - dammriver ONLINE (05/05/2013) [-]
Hey, what's up?
User avatar #1117 to #1116 - haunterbrony (05/05/2013) [-]
Doctor Who, and lots of it.^^

What's with you?
User avatar #1118 to #1117 - dammriver ONLINE (05/05/2013) [-]
Not much' kinda miss a couple of users...
*sigh*
How are ya? Coming to the Tinychat 'party' later?
User avatar #1119 to #1118 - haunterbrony (05/05/2013) [-]
Naaah, I need to sleep early. Not that tomorrow is anything, just getting used to more sleep. Which is also by far better for my metabolism, which I need.

Who do you miss?
User avatar #1120 to #1119 - dammriver ONLINE (05/05/2013) [-]
Zephy, Shy, and a couple more... Those two are closer to "top" of my list right now, though...
User avatar #1121 to #1120 - haunterbrony (05/05/2013) [-]
Zeph is going through a hard time right now. And what happened with Shy... I don't know what's with him :I
User avatar #1122 to #1121 - dammriver ONLINE (05/05/2013) [-]
I know about Zeph, thanks to Delta, but Shy... I just wish I could give him a hug :/

I hope that he either didn't go through, or something failed... I really do... I don't know where he's from, though... I don't know much :/
User avatar #1123 to #1122 - haunterbrony (05/05/2013) [-]
Let's just say I hope he's still breathing. One time the only reason he didn't do it is because the lack o a rope. I dearly hope he didn't find one.
User avatar #1124 to #1123 - dammriver ONLINE (05/05/2013) [-]
Did he ever say why he wanted to?
User avatar #1125 to #1124 - haunterbrony (05/05/2013) [-]
He is constantly depressed. I tried several times to get to him but.. well, he never really opened. Doesn't mean I won't try it again when he returns from wherever he is.
User avatar #1126 to #1125 - dammriver ONLINE (05/05/2013) [-]
I'm going to try to take a passionate/calm and caring approach at first, then, if that doesn't work, I'm going to try to be more 'assertive'... Damn my mind and its desire to help everything with everything. I guess it's a good thing, though, because it makes me stand out from the average crowd...

Anyway, I hope he comes back...
#1107 - haunterbrony (04/29/2013) [-]
Hello, Dammy.
User avatar #1108 to #1107 - dammriver ONLINE (04/29/2013) [-]
Hey... How are you?
#1109 to #1108 - haunterbrony (04/29/2013) [-]
I'm pretty good. Nothing to complain about for once. How are you?
User avatar #1110 to #1109 - dammriver ONLINE (04/29/2013) [-]
I'm okay... Got some more 'fun' news this weekend :/

April just needs to be over, and May needs to be better...
#1111 to #1110 - haunterbrony (04/29/2013) [-]
News? What news? Need to talk it out?
User avatar #1112 to #1111 - dammriver ONLINE (04/29/2013) [-]
Don't really need to talk it out, but I found out that someone that's in my shop (a 'friend', but not close) at school was involved in a serious motorcycle accident... They don't know if he's going to make it...
#1113 to #1112 - haunterbrony (04/29/2013) [-]
That's pretty harsh... I'd say go and visit him.

How's life treating you otherwise? Going halfway okay?
User avatar #1114 to #1113 - dammriver ONLINE (04/29/2013) [-]
Yeah, I guess... I can't wait for April to be over...

#1086 to #1085 - princesscadence (04/15/2013) [-]
Well still not doing too well......
User avatar #1087 to #1086 - dammriver ONLINE (04/15/2013) [-]
Well,what's bothering you?
#1088 to #1087 - princesscadence (04/15/2013) [-]
A lot of things...primarily losing my house and such......
User avatar #1089 to #1088 - dammriver ONLINE (04/15/2013) [-]
Do you have a place to go?

Like your friend in Las Vegas, or the one in Cali?
#1090 to #1089 - princesscadence (04/15/2013) [-]
Possibly....only problem is the cost of getting there....would love cali more than Vegas cause my friends in Vegas are not so understanding of me.
User avatar #1091 to #1090 - dammriver ONLINE (04/15/2013) [-]
Do you have an income, yet?
User avatar #1092 to #1091 - princesscadence (04/15/2013) [-]
No....and it wouldn't help since my parents would use my pay to help pay off what they owe to banks....while they just pressure me and sit around watchign TV
User avatar #1093 to #1092 - dammriver ONLINE (04/15/2013) [-]
Is there a way that your friends could come get you?
User avatar #1094 to #1093 - princesscadence (04/15/2013) [-]
not sure since only thing they would be doing is a round trip to here......my friend in Cali wont mind having me over there but my friends in Vegas may get a little irritated at how long it may take for me to actually start paying them rent....only problem I have is getting there and such......not sure how anyone can help me with this and not entirely sure how to get their own my own.
User avatar #1095 to #1094 - dammriver ONLINE (04/15/2013) [-]
Hmm... So basically, you just need transportation...

Somewhat a waiting game, now...
What else is bothering you?
User avatar #1096 to #1095 - princesscadence (04/15/2013) [-]
Ponyville kind if having a lot of drama lately.....and stuff.

Mostly my worries are in transportation seeing as how I have no way to cover that cost on my own.
User avatar #1097 to #1096 - dammriver ONLINE (04/15/2013) [-]
Any way to start a fundraiser of some sort?

Well, I was going to go to sleep, but decided to check how things are here first. How are you?
User avatar #1064 to #1043 - dammriver ONLINE (04/03/2013) [-]
Just as an update, my aunt had a severe heart attack last night... We didn't find out today, but she apparently died on our floor, and came back in the ambulance...

Right now, she is being transferred to another hospital that specializes with the heart... Before they left, though, they couldn't stabilize her heart rate... I don't know if she's going to be ok, but I hope so...
#1065 to #1064 - haunterbrony (04/03/2013) [-]
I'm certain it will be fine. And if not... let's not think about the worst possible outcome for now. Are you feeling better?
User avatar #1066 to #1065 - dammriver ONLINE (04/03/2013) [-]
Slightly. I'm making headway in the 'peer counseling' thing that I've set up. We had the main 'starter' meeting today, and now we're waiting on getting members and setting everything up...
#1067 to #1066 - haunterbrony (04/03/2013) [-]
Now that is at the very least something. I wish you good luck with that, and hope you and your aunt will be well.
User avatar #1068 to #1067 - dammriver ONLINE (04/03/2013) [-]
Thanks, and me too...

How are you?
User avatar #1069 to #1068 - haunterbrony (04/03/2013) [-]
I'm doing fine. Only problem is, I can't be arsed to study, since I have neither motivation, nor pressure due to few time. Funny enough it is in less than two weeks, so I should feel pressure.
User avatar #1070 to #1069 - dammriver ONLINE (04/03/2013) [-]
I know what you mean... That feeling of "Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow?"
User avatar #1071 to #1070 - haunterbrony (04/03/2013) [-]
Heh, exactly that feeling. Why do a presentation today if you can throw some random **** together the day after?
User avatar #1072 to #1071 - dammriver ONLINE (04/03/2013) [-]
Hah, yep...
User avatar #1073 to #1072 - haunterbrony (04/03/2013) [-]
Well Damdam, I'm calling it a night. G'night buddy, and have a good one. Love you.
User avatar #1074 to #1073 - dammriver ONLINE (04/03/2013) [-]
Goodnight, love you too :3
User avatar #1044 to #1043 - dammriver ONLINE (04/01/2013) [-]
I'm ok. Not guaranteeing anything for tomorrow, but I don't really want to go to school in this mood... I hope some people don't take it personally.
User avatar #1045 to #1044 - haunterbrony (04/01/2013) [-]
Huh... maybe you should just take the day off tomorrow, which of course means fake being sick. Please consider this if you feel too bad to go to school.
User avatar #1046 to #1045 - dammriver ONLINE (04/01/2013) [-]
If I feel too bad, then yeah... If not, I might just head over to the guidance office some time tomorrow...
User avatar #1047 to #1046 - haunterbrony (04/01/2013) [-]
I understand how you must feel right now. If you feel like school will help due to distraction, then go. If you're like me and can't focus on anything in such a situation, it would probably be better for you to just stay at home, and try to relax a little.
User avatar #1048 to #1047 - dammriver ONLINE (04/01/2013) [-]
Yeah, I'll see how I feel tomorrow... I have some good teachers, so I think that they'll understand... I'm just hoping that my father follows through and goes to a rehab facility tomorrow.
User avatar #1049 to #1048 - haunterbrony (04/01/2013) [-]
And if not, you just gotta push him a little so he goes.

I really need to sleep now, good night. I'll be dropping by tomorrow. Love you man.
User avatar #1050 to #1049 - dammriver ONLINE (04/01/2013) [-]
Ok, good night, and I love you too...

Also, thanks...

I'm ok, how are you?
User avatar #1054 to #1053 - haunterbrony (04/01/2013) [-]
I'm pretty okay myself. Staying up late again, because I'm smart.^^
User avatar #1055 to #1054 - dammriver ONLINE (04/01/2013) [-]
Lol, who needs sleep?
User avatar #1056 to #1055 - haunterbrony (04/01/2013) [-]
I don't even know wha- hold me I'm passing out..
User avatar #1057 to #1056 - dammriver ONLINE (04/02/2013) [-]
And I just had to call an ambulance for my aunt -_-

Life is playing a fun game of "How much pressure can he ******* take?!"
User avatar #1058 to #1057 - haunterbrony (04/02/2013) [-]
Christ... are you okay? I mean, given the circumstances, dumb question, but.. are you still running?
User avatar #1059 to #1058 - dammriver ONLINE (04/02/2013) [-]
Yeah, I am. I think I'll be able to handle stress like a ******* champ when I'm older.

She went into very severe respiratory distress, and her lips were purple before the first guys even got here. There was a point when she stopped breathing altogether, but she'll [hopefully] be ok... She was doing better once they got her in the ambulance, but she still wasn't too good...
User avatar #1060 to #1059 - haunterbrony (04/02/2013) [-]
Buddy, you already do handle stress like a ******* champ. Highly doubt many could do that without breaking down.

Holy **** man.. I hope everything will be fine. For now we can only wait and drink tea. Speaking of tea, I recommend sweet chai tea. That is one hell of a bad time to speak about tea.
User avatar #1061 to #1060 - dammriver ONLINE (04/02/2013) [-]
Tea is love
Tea is life

But yeah, me too. Hah, and I have a meeting the next three days; One regarding peer counseling, and two regarding another program that I'm in.
User avatar #1062 to #1061 - haunterbrony (04/02/2013) [-]
And I say again, if there is something you don't actually need and could neglect it, in order to focus on more important things, then I highly suggest doing it. As for now, I need sleep. Good night, and you should go to sleep, too.. since it is something after 10 PM at your place, I guess.
User avatar #1063 to #1062 - dammriver ONLINE (04/02/2013) [-]
Yeah, I will in a few minutes.

Goodnight <3

Haunter here, back to my starter acc

That is a good thing. Still, go and hug her! :3

Not much going on here. Just at a friend right now and watching some random show. Poor ****** is emotionally devastated watching this. Though I'm pretty sure he's just playing.^^
User avatar #1042 to #1041 - dammriver ONLINE (03/17/2013) [-]

I'm ok... My friend just lost her grandfather, though. It's really hard on her, and I'm trying to help her as much as I can... Really, all that I can do is talk to her.
