So, just how far did this zap send you ?
Which time (I was a kid at the time)?

Ohh...kay, if you insist. I used to take home old TV chassis I found back behind a TV repair shop to strip for parts back when I was in high school. Since anything more than the chassis was too much to carry home on my bicycle, I would strip the CRT and cabinet from it first. Occasionally, I would forget to ground the flyback lead before removing it from the picture tube and would get knocked down on my then not so ample asset.

And how many times did it take before you learned your lesson ?

I was a kid; how many times do you think?

Just a heads up.

850 EVO has TLC (3-bit per cell) chips.
850 PRO has MLC (2-bit per cell) chips.
