My father was a shoe repairman in the San Diego area. He routinely added a braided ground strap to nurses shoes. They were required for individuals working in high oxygen areas to prevent sparks from igniting a fire.

He would simply take a flat braided wire and punch it through the sole and lay about a 1 inch length inside the shoe and outside the shoe and anchor the ends wth a flat rivet.

Years ago an IBM typewriter field technician (so you KNOW it was years ago!), kept getting calls from an office where one machine seemed to malfuctioning. But when he tested it it worked fine. He even swapped out the machine, but still the one at a particular desk always seemed to malfunction.

So on one call, the secretary (so you KNOW it was years ago!). Showed him how it malfunctioned. She turned it on, put in a piece of paper, and the typewriter went into fits as her  extremely full bosom rested on the typewriter keyboard.

Wow, interesting problem to have! The first thought I had when I saw the headline was, "So, if you're in the Hell's Angels, you can use this particular computer?" Clever sleuthing on this one to figure out the problem!
