    My toaster keeps shocking me

    When I retrieve a bagel with my trusty butter knife I keep getting zapped. Should I do it from outside the bathtub ?

    I would resort to plastic ware that should remedy your issue.

    I was going to say don't feed the troll, but he's banned now anyway.

    Only after he shoves the butter knife up his ass for a proper ground.

    I was making toast in my toaster over the other day and something odd happened. I set the timer and walked away, when the timer went off, I went to pull out the toast. I noticed the bread was not toasted, so I opened the door of the oven to see if it had warmed up at all. When I touched the bread I received a strong shock, similar to scuffing your socked feet on the carpet and touching something metal.

    If you were a real tech, you'd solder a relay on that board and call it good to go.

    I do a triple evac with nitro to remove non condensables.

    I use 56% silver on everything except steel.

    Did you really need the " If you were a real tech " ??
