Do NOT ever do this. The electricy will flashover - loaded arc on switch off. This spark can set the whole lot off. The switch gap contacts are about 3mm - loading arc can strech to 3 feet - train pantographs have been known to do this.
The gas board advice is not to operate switches AT ALL.
!? Sorry, pay no attention to my above ill-informed post. InterCity saves lives, I endanger them. It's what makes the world go round.

Lol . Easy mistake - common sense tells you to turn things off but it reality it is the opposite. Loaded arc are quite spectacular to see - not common these days but with trains it used to be common. Pantogrpah got weighed down by snow, made occasional contant but created an arc when it lost it - 3 feet was known. Amazing stuff electricity.

final destination: kid is on plane; kid has vision of plane exploding; kid runs off plane; friends follow; plane explodes; kids were "supposed" to die, by deaths design; kids die one by one through mysterious and wierd accidents; kids try and escape death by predicting it's moves and avoid death; kids fail; spawn cheap sequel.
sounds...umm...interesting...

it's compulsive viewing it really is - the best bit is when the lady goes crazy and as she's walking backwards the last thing she says is "Why dont you all just drop dead" and then a bus just comes out of nowhere and hit her - wicked.

if you are being serious you need to get professional help. if you are trying to be funny you need to shut up.

Did anybody see Casual+y ages ago, when there was a gas leak and some stupid guy sparked a fag and...serves him right for smoking. I swear I've seen a gas leak-induced inferno start by someone just flicking on a light switch, but I can't remember the programme/film. :confused:
