It's evident that this kid's kit was overheating because there was an unplugged socket leaking extra electricity into the room. Instead of dunking his kit in water, cos it doesn't work after that blue flash, (which releases the magic blue smoke that makes electric stuff go). Instead he needs to change all his electrical fuses for tinfoil or copper wire. That stops electrical stuff from cutting out. I did it on my kettle and it stopped cutting out right till it exploded.
By the way, it's stupid to say that water doesn't conduct electricity. Why do you think there's lightning in rainstorms? doh!
Jus' also want to say hi to my fellow redneck, Jason, ol' buddy! er, hi!
