I was recently shown an electrical safety video comprised of
honest-to-God actual home movies in which people accidentally taped
their sons, brothers, sisters, relatives, friends, and neighbors getting
electrocuted. The absolute following Saturday, I picked up 10 GFCI
units and replaced every outlet in my home that was within shouting
distance of water.
