A recent forum thread has highlighted how silly some people are. An Ebay seller has recently described a radio up for bids which, like many vintage appliances, is still equipped with its original mains power lead.

In the seller's description he tells of how he went about testing the radio before putting it up for auction and the way he went about it beggars belief. Just when one has thought he's seen all that life has to offer someone is all too ready to prove one wrong.

It's easy to laugh at stupidity but the reality is that the preparation for the auction could easily have lead to tragedy. I have revised the warnings in red text at the bottom of this page because of this.

Be very careful with electricity. You cannot see the danger.
