First running down stairs with scissors, now taking the interlocks off Xray sources.
Who knew that Beowulfery really was a sport for adrenalin junkies?

Me, I genuinely do say very often that I should have taken up lion taming.
A much more predictable job than managing HPC clusters, and if things go wrong the lions will do less damage to you than
a gang of angry users.
Also so long as you don't show fear you can keep both users and wild lions in line.
