Same here dear. Training and coahing become a part of our life as well as for an organization. These two are the step of learning and give us succes in our career. When the traing is in a video from is easily understood and more effective. It also appreciable. Thanks again. Career transition training and coaching

Have to admit it made me laugh, I have had some experience with ESD guns and have seen even guys that "know what they are doing" make a mistake. Still quite funny but I would not want to try it..

Of course you are right when it is an actual dangerous act. But I don't consider a 25kV ESD from a certified gun a danger. Like I said, you can easily pick up 25kV sliding down one of those kid's slides in the parks. I might be crazy, but not that much that I would endanger my life!

Mehdi - I understand what you are trying to do, but in viewing, this look to me to go past humorous in into dangerous, even if the ESD gun has a lower voltage than a Taser. I appreciate the value of humor in educational videos, but, personally, I'd rather see it come out in a different form. There's a trend these days toward self-violence in videos and I don't think it's a healthy trend. Call me a spoil-sport, but when taken too far, such imagery detracts from the message. It becomes more a pure humor vehicle than an effective educational too.

Well, I don't want to admit to my ineptness! But the 25K was true and I was zapped during taking the video. But I was well aware of it and my point was to make the video funny so the message sticks! Also I should say although it hurts, the 25K ESD is not as hazardous as it sounds. A tazer gun is around 50K I believe. If you slide over those plastic slides that are held with metal screws to ground, you will definitely feel the 25K ESD down there!

The video is definitely staged, or not! In any case I hope it gets the point through and we see a reduction in the number of engineers zapping themselves!

Definitely, the video is staged... or the guy is trying to kill himself !! There are several videos in youtube in which Mehdi Sadaghdar does "risky demos". Below you've some examples: Shorcutting a huge capacitor... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DQJ8JX17J58 Playing with car batteries... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vRwIrbK8KDI

The first part of the video seems so obviously deliberate... but when the demo-guy finally takes the charged board from the desk, almost makes me cry!!! I totally agree with you in that the video itself is in fact very educative for ESD newcomers

The ESD video is definitely deliberate humor, but it works -- it really is funny!
