ectel Sorry Mr. Leggett...

Was that Headingham School?

Those who remember a certain Mr Fisher teaching Physics at the Kings School Chester circa 1990 will be chuckling at this point.

1) Teachers shouldn't fiddle absent-mindedly with large capacitors while teaching,

2) certainly not ones that have been charged from the bench 12v supply,

3) and when the inevitable happens and the fly leads make (loud, sparky, shocky) contact, said teacher should have the presence of mind not to say "FUCK" very loudly in front of 25 wide-eyed, innocent and hitherto uncorrupted boys who had of course NEVER heard such naughty words before or used them.
