Sweaty Chinese Man Electrocuted by Computer,2933,291543,00.html


A 20-year-old student in Shanghai, China, was electrocuted Monday when he opened his computer's external case while the machine was still on, the Shanghai Daily reported.

The man, identified only by the common family name of Wu, had apparently opened his PC's case to prevent its central processing chip from overheating because he didn't want to turn his air conditioning on
Duh, here'sw your meter.

Yup, he deserves the meter alright. You don't take the cover of a computer off while it is running. Your computer is not likely to need manual cooling efforts in addition to your computer's cooling fans. Finally, exercise extreme caution around electronic gear! :nono:
