It's not only women, this guy has the hot air gun wrong as well:


Also, don't you hate it when you accidentally grab the soldering iron instead of the other meter probe?

How about the solar roadways one:


Measuring asphault with a DMM that's turned off, probes in the wrong jacks, and the safety vest on backwards!

This thread took a fucking bizarre turn*...

I was just going to comment that... those soldering irons, half are the $10 RadioShank model.  I know because I used them so much, years ago! ::)

"I'll be right up, honey...just as soon as I'm done soldering up this motherboard.  You know, from that motherboard kit you got me for Christmas...because that's what we all do with our soldering irons.  We solder up motherboards."

+1.  Countdown to thread being locked soon ...

Anyway, I did a search for "stock photo multimeter" and it led to

http://www.shutterstock.com/s/multimeter/search.html

The number of mistakes is funny.  Meters with a reading on the lcd display, but rotary switch set to off.  People taking measurements, but meter is turned off and lcd display is blank.  People measuring mains with black probe in V/ohm jack and red probe in A jack and rotary switch set to DCV. I quit looking after page 1.

So much fun. It's typically true for most professions probably. I know programming and instruments/musicians have the same entertainment value.

I wonder if the heatsink was chosen specifically to cover whatever the source of the smoke is

They're not all holding it wrong, but just look at that tip... :palm:

That's not how you replace bad caps.

And almost all of them seem to be mains-heated unregulated irons too... although this appears to be a 936 clone: http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-photo-young-man-use-iron-soldering-electric-parts-home-work-table-image53972376

I know why the motherboards don't work, there is no CPU or memory installed in them. Plus hard disk drives don't tend to last long with their covers removed. But hey, what would I know? ;-)

Do people actually pay for these?  It seems to me it would be cheaper in the long run to get a DSLR and make your own.

Holding it right, I'm not sure, but on the right side, yes for sure :D
When you make hardware without taking into account the needs of the eventual software developers, you end up with bloated hardware full of pointless excess. From the outset one must consider design from both a hardware and software perspective.

I actually didn't even notice.   :palm: I don't have a digital scope. Did you capture it then remove the probe?
