Getting shocked by face plate screws


On a serious true note: Static can KILL you. The static charge that builds up on a helicopters rotor blades while flying is way up into the THOUSANDS OF VOLTS. In some movies you will see a man on deck with a big pole the has a ground strap that looks like it is the size of a 2 x 4 that he hooks onto the skid before ANYBODY get near it or it get near the deck; THAT IS FOR REAL.

I have been knocked of the top of a HUMVEE because of a loose ground wire.
Grabed the hook and landed on my back, looking at the chopper!
Hurt for 2 days.
