My brother-in-law is Head of Science at a school in Newcastle. My mother-in-law had a problem with a fuse blowing, so her son, the Head of Science, rewired the fuse with a piece of wire from a coat hanger!

It didn't blow again but the main fuse did!

Thank goodness they don't let teachers loose in industry.

A few years back one of our chemists was an ex teacher. (He still works with the company but has moved out of the lab.) Not only is he in industry he organizes one of the local fireworks displays, having a budget in the region of 1-2k IIRC.

Fortunately he has more common sense than many teachers

Re: The real reason we use mirroless cameras

Industry has its own teachers as the majority of teachers do not have the detailed knowledge of industrial practice in the same way industrial workers do not have the detailed knowledge for teaching. Today teaching targets are to pass academic examinations rather than teaching for employment or for educations sake?

Sadly all too true.

Re: The real reason we use mirroless cameras

Some time ago we bought a stock of Everready 150W "Rough Service Lamps" light bulbs for use in our kitchen. Two which blew in succession, each after just a few weeks, each blew the downstairs lighting fuse.

If the broken filament falls across the terminals inside the bulb it will trip the lighting circuit. That seems to be quite normal.

The filament would have to "fall" upwards. Maybe it curls.

Maybe, but it seems that our lighting circuits nearly always trip when a light bulb fails.

It doesn't help that the modern circuit breakers are very sensitive to overcurrent loads. The old wired fuses would glow red for half an hour before they blew!

Well, s'funny you should say that, but our daughter has presented us with a Davina McCall 'Keep Fit' DVD that she bought using my eVilbay account!

I will happily watch it, but whether I can do the Keep Fit bit is another matter - especially if she is wearing a 'combination' (I believe they are called leotards nowadays), or that rather fetching red outfit that she wore for Comic Relief.
