outlets not working

Let's say it would cost you $400 for an electrician to do this
and your hospital bill for disfiguring injuries would be $4000.

You should only try this if your chance of succeeding is better than 400/4000 = 10%.

But you do learn by doing it.

I replaced my first recep @ when I was 14

I remember seeing the new recep laying on the desk for several months. I was a fix it kind of kid (my Dad...not so much) so I decided to replace it.

Of course I was a girly boy and shut off the power.

PS. I still can't spell receptacle without spell checking it.
