Love it. That's like watching my neighbor trying to get to a blown light 
bulb by spinning the entire light fixture, with the switch on.  I barely 
had time to say "stop, don't....." before sparks were shooting out of 
the ceiling, then the breaker blew.  It's surprising how little some 
people know.  I fell blessed that my dad was mr. fix-it, the films in 
7th grade shop class starring "primitive pete" helped too.
