Huh ??? you say fun to do it ??
,, I have no idea why you say that just wait until a arc flash or something short out and it will scare ya out of your mind.
keep in your mind the lugs above the main breaker i did see it that always be hot and UNfused or UNbreakered if that main wire short out there is good chance the house can burn down or POCO [PowerCompany ] transformer fuse kick out belive me they do nasty damage there.
That the reason why we the electrician do have extra time and training to deal with the system.
Most POCO useally dont charge for comming out and cut the power off in safe manner but some i say some will charge small fee for it.
350 bucks ? maybe little high in some area but 350 bucks for POCO to come out and cut the power off is better than the house burn down.
this link will show how powerfull the flash if something short out
this link will show what the electric meter look like after fire damage
now you can understand how serious this is if you dont follow the code and safety here
