Isn't that a bit scary when it happens? When I was upgrading my past past past computer by taking shortcuts, I foolishly omitted the plastic footies separating the mobo from the chassis. As I pressed a card back into a slot, metal touched metal and and *POOF*, sparks, smoke and flames shot up and and died after a few seconds. I was scared not because I feared the place might burn down, but because I also foolishly left all my peripherals attached to the computer. Luckily, nothing fried but the mobo.

I'm sure it would have been scarier had it been my computer. ;-)

But yeah, I panicked for a second before I thought "turn off the power strip!"
