    The G key is immediately above the B, so I can see how this happened. What makes it worse is that "bog" in British slang means a toilet.

    This will only make sense if you're familiar with California's Inland Empire, but for those that aren't, suffice as to say that San Bernardino is nicknamed San Bernaghetto by natives of the surrounding settlements.

    That's the best post so far. I bet D-150 theaters had a Showmanship module in the racks that used a 200 amp knife switch...

    I Never Realized There Was Actually A Switch For This!

    (For the technically curious- - I saw this switch in a rack-full of equipment
    at a theater The Union sent me to work a last minute shift at the other nite.
    I wanted to get a picture of the whole device, but it was in a very dark
    corner of the booth, and I couldn't turn on the work lites during the show.
    The name plate said it was a: "Klone-Tec Automation Unit". Maybe one
    of you guys knows more about it, since I can't find any info online.

    Although it was powered up, it was not in use- - in fact one of the reasons
    I was sent there was because they run all their shows manually and thier
    regular operator was busy working another event that night)

    Fortunately, there are already lots of places that specialize in rebuilding EV battery packs... not that having that done is cheap either...

    They didn't like the price of gas at the airport, and decided to use the Chevron across the street?

    The opposite happened with BA flight 38: condensation froze in a fuel/oil heat exchanger while it was on final approach, causing the simultaneous failure of both engines just before the final application of power was needed for the flare and touchdown. The quick acting pilot retracted the flaps just in time to get them over the perimeter fence and onto the airfield, but they came down on the grass short of the runway, thereby totaling a $300m airplane. 100 yards further and it would likely have been fixable. No deaths, but dozens of injuries.

    Southwest Flight 1455 over ran the runway at Bob Hope Airport back in 2000. No fatalities, but the plane was written off...
