      I scuba dive and drive boats for my job, but it’s probably more dangerous for me to drive to the ocean than to get into it! 🙂 Most of my days are pretty low risk.

      Yes – very much so. one time I was building a high voltage power supply. It was about 35kV which is…very, very high voltage. Well, I accidentally wired up the ground to the live wires. This meant that my entire lab was at 35kV and I couldn’t move without being electrocuted. I don’t recommend doing that.
