never work with an electrician missing digits. I've actually encountered one who tickled live 230v wires to see if  they were live

What’s wrong with pyrotechs under 30?  Besides, when you’re shooting shells the size of your head you won’t lose a few fingers...you’ll blow off your whole arm...and probably your head with it!

Never buy from a rich salesman.

Always hire a rich attorney.

Never trust a skinny chef. 

"Never buy anything in a room with a chandelier" and "If the scotch is 12 years old and the shrimp are the size of your fist, run and take your checkbook with you, there is no product*"  are from Harvey McKay, syndicated business columnist and author.

* paraphrasing, sort of. The thing about scotch and shrimp are the crux of it.

I have a form of red/green color blindness but I can easily discern primary colors.  The thing I have the most trouble with are shades of green (green has the longest color range and when it gets closer to teals or yellow is where I have difficulties.  I found out when I applied with Ma Bell to be an outside plant worker (think: splicing and terminating).

Always check an electrician's tools for arc-burns.

I have a different road on this.  A lesson learned is often better than a lesson never encountered?  But it's sounding too much like "To have loved and lost than to have never loved at all".   
Anyway,
Maybe the guy with no brows will be much more concerned about getting it right in the future.
