I gotta remember that one.

back when i was a contracter at GE R&D, once a new electrician came into
our work area and told us that the lisp machines in our machine room were
running on emergency power and he was going to fix it for us.

we weren't quite quick enough to stop him from hitting the button labeled
"emergency power off".

in retrospect, it's funny, but at the time we were leaning towards killing
him right then and there.
