Not too bright

Hubby tried to kill himself. Well, not intentionally. He tried to cut the wires off a UPS (uninterruptible power supply) without disconnecting the batteries first. Yup, he got a small explosion with sparks and smoke and a large chuck melted/blasted off the cutting tool. He wasn't fully awake when he did it, but he is wide awake now.

It's interesting that he didn't tell me about it. I had to hear it from an employee. I have since dismantled the UPS so it is safe.

As he didn't manage to kill himself, it is rather amusing. Tell him the Darwin Awards are awards you don't want to win.

He's never been one for awards. I, on the other hand, will play hours of stupid games to get badges.
That sounds like the kind of stunt my dad might pull if he wasn't an electrician. *g* Somehow, I'm not surprised your hubby kept quiet about it. That's a typical man for you. Well, it's a good thing that employee told you about it - mostly so that you could dismantle the UPS to make it safe! ;-)
I think he assumed the batteries were dead because the unit was being recycled. You know that saying about assume...you make an "ass" out of "u" and "me".
