What, no penny in the fuse box? I remember those. We even had a penny lying beside the fuse panel so that it would be handy just in case.

And, remember that your grandfather "forgot" to tell you never run your finger around the fuse socket before inserting the penny?
I can still hear him laughing!

Yeah that penny works real well....except when it doesn't....as when my wife's grandfather put one in his fuse
box and the house burnt down......only my explanation to the fire marshal kept him out of trouble....your experience may vary
but.....
They got out but just barely....emt's said another 30 seconds and they would not have made it....
