When I was a kid, about 13-14, I got my start in electronics at the local radio club and I can still remember when a guy working on an audio amplifier screwed something up driving a dummy load, the EL34s all started glowing bright blue and we were all standing around looking at them when the power supply went TITSUP and a couple of 300V electrolyte caps turned into steam and confetti - YEH!
