This doesn't have to do with amps or tubes but it's still funny...

I spent some time in the Air Force and while stationed in Japan I was in an electronics installation/removal unit. We were doing a removal job in an unused communications room and were pulling down all of the overhead cable ducts and their contents. Now of course, there was a 4" duct full of power wires, and since all the breakers were off, we assumed all of these were off. Now this big guy goes up there and starts cutting them, and gets a live one! It's not so funny that he shocked himself on the live wire, it's that he actually climbed back up the ladder and tried to cut it again with the same result!

I recently went into a Radio Shack to buy a 500k pot. They didnt seem to have one, so I asked the man if he could order me one. He said he had never heard of one and the best thing he could tell me to do was to go to an electronics store. I just shook my head and walked away...

From the synth-diy board:
" This reminds me of one of the worst experiences of my life. I used to repair music gear. I recieved a Fender Guitar amp that was broken to fix. It had several problems, all of them pretty minor. One of the things I noticed while fixing it was that the 1/4 inch jack on the input was pretty badly corroded. I replaced it with a nice new shiny switchcraft jack. The whole thing worked great when I was done. The mf refused to pay! Why? Because I destroyed the sound of his amp...seems he would put the jack from his guitar in just so, and it would sound "real cool". Not any more....this is one of the reasons I won't repair anything for anybody anymore."
Nice one, Jim :)
